Dr. Michael E. Krause DDS, MS

June 8, 1952 - January 26, 2019.

Michael Eberhardt Krause was born in Detroit, Michigan to the late Michael Rudolph and Sylvia (Palmquist) Krause. He was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and spent childhood summers in Northern Michigan on Heart Lake near Waters, Michigan. Michael graduated from Wylie E. Groves High School in 1970. He attended The University of Michigan for undergraduate, dental, and graduate school. Michael enjoyed his career as an Ann Arbor periodontist for over 35 years.

He provided expert case review to Delta Dental. He was a Former President of the Michigan Periodontal Association and a Former President of the Washtenaw District Dental Society. He valued good, hard work and his core group of colleagues who valued the same.  He had long time patients whose friendships he treasured.

Michael was most content when sitting on his dock on the Au Sable River with his bird dog -- sipping a drink, reading a book, reading the water and shooting the breeze with friends and family.  Michael's varied interests included fly-fishing, bird hunting, reading, cooking, wood-working, and listening to traditional blues music. In his college years he created beautiful paintings and pottery. He was always a teacher and enjoyed sharing his knowledge. He was filled with love and amusement at the antics of his grandchildren.

Michael is survived by his wife, two daughters and their spouses, his son, three grandchildren, two sisters and their spouses, niece and nephews. His loving family grieves his sudden and unexpected passing. Tight lines and boundless love Papa.
