HECTOR -- Austin Brian Krumrey, 15, of Hector, died Monday at the University of Minnesota Fairview in Minneapolis.

The service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Buffalo Lake-Hector High School in Hector. Burial will be in Zion Lutheran Cemetery in Buffalo Lake.

He was born Dec. 8, 1992, in Hutchinson to Brian and Susan (Bach) Krumrey. He grew up in the Hector area, and was a sophomore at Buffalo Lake-Hector High School. He worked for Dean Wiggert and farmers in the area.

He was diagnosed with AML leukemia on July 27, 2007. He was treated with chemotherapy and was in remission until June 12, when it was determined that he would need to have a bone marrow transplant. A successful cord cell transplant took place Sept. 5 at the University of Minnesota Fairview, but he had numerous lung issues related to suppression of his immune system for the transplant. The lung issues claimed his life.

He played football for Buffalo Lake-Hector High School, was a member of the wrestling team, and had joined FFA. He was involved with truck and minne-rod pulling.

He is survived by his parents of Hector; brothers: Dakota and Wyatt; grandparents: Sandra Bach of Litchfield, Ken (and Julie) Krumrey of Buffalo Lake, and Connie (and Joe) Maiers of Stewart; and great-grandmother: Laura Bach of Hutchinson.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather: Jerome Bach; and by great-grandparents.
