Obituary (February 01, 2010)

Morton Krieger, Veteran of Aftermarket Distribution

Morton Krieger, president of Barton Auto Parts in Hamilton, Ontario, passed away at the age of 70 while vacationing in Florida.

The company has served the Hamilton area for the past 58 years; however, Mort had reached out to suppliers and customers far beyond the immediate area. Mort left high school to run the family business started by his father, Thomas Krieger.

Mort passed away with his wife by his side, his sweetheart since age 13 and wife of over 50 years, Jerre. Mort was loved by his children Robin, Stephen, and Tracy and their spouses Alissa and Jonathan. Mort was blessed by the love of five grandchildren: Zakari, Dylan, Megan, Noah and Lilly, dear brother to Merle (Jack), Cheryl (Morrie), and Howard (deceased) and survived by his Uncle Jack and many nephews and nieces. His was a life of loyalty and devotion to his family. Donations in Mort’s honour may be made to the Juravinski Cancer Centre of Hamilton Health Sciences.
