Obituaries » Sergey Stepanovich Krutskikh
April 30, 1946 - November 14, 2022
On Monday, November 14, 2022, Sergey Stepanovich Krutskikh finished the final chapter of his life at age 76 and has now entered into his heavenly rest.
He was born in the former USSR republic of Kazakhstan to Elizaveta Simonovna Krutskikh-Boldyrev & Stephen Todarev.
Sergey served 3 years in the USSR military, and then worked for almost 20 years as an electrician in the black coal mines of Russia.
He married Tamara Andreevna Pakoeva on July 27, 1969, and they were blessed with their first child on May 9, 1970. They went on to have 9 more children over the following years, who gave them 26 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
From a young age, Sergey was known as a hard- working individual who loved helping others and always made time for his family. After dedicating his life to Christ at the age of 21, he was devoted to reading and studying the Word of God and loved sharing his faith with others. He committed himself to the things of God and was very involved in the church ministry. He loved singing with his wife and preaching at every opportunity.
In 1989, before the fall of the USSR, Sergey was blessed to leave Russia and move his family to the USA through the refugee visas. After coming to the United States, he worked in construction and odd jobs to support his family.
In 2008, Sergey and his wife, Tamara, bought a house in Alaska where they enjoyed the rustic Alaskan lifestyle for many years. Four months ago, they came to stay at their daughter’s home in Washington State so he could receive better medical treatment. Sergey spent his last 4 months on earth surrounded by the family and friends he loved dearly.
Sergey will be greatly missed by the many people he affected over his lifetime. He was preceded in death by his mother, father and one brother. He leaves behind his three brothers and one sister. His Wife, 10 children, and all his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. While Sergey leaves behind a large legacy of offspring, the greatest legacy is his love of Christ and the dedication to Christ he instilled in his children and all who would listen. Sergey expects all of his children to maintain his legacy by keeping in remembrance the things of God.
