Richard G. Krebs died Thursday, October 27, 2016. \n\nBorn on November 14, 1939 in Corning to George and Marion (Babcock) Krebs, Richard graduated in 1957 from Corning Free Academy and from Corning Community College in 1960. He went to work at Corning Glass Works after college but was drafted into the US Army in 1962.\n\nAfter serving his country, Richard went back to work for Corning Glass Works where he worked most of his career at the Pressware Plant and enjoyed harassing his fellow workers until he retired in 1995. After retirement, he did consulting work for World Kitchen where he continued harassing fellow workers. \n\nIn 1998, Richard was asked to be a chaperone on a trip to Norway with the high school soccer team. He then continued doing things with the school district and eventually started operating the time clock at sporting events for the last 16 years - his favorite career.\n\nRichard left his wife, Lena, and his only daughter, Krissie, way too soon. He is survived by his younger brothers George (Carolyn) and Don (Gloria); mother-in-law Alta Russell; sister-in-law Freddie Sue (Stan); nieces, nephews and many, many friends who still shake their head remembering pranks and stories involving Richard. \n\nRichard never wanted calling hours; so, a Mass will be held at 1:30 PM on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at St. Mary's Church, 155 State Street in Corning. Burial will be at the convenience of the family in St. Mary's Cemetery. \n\nIn lieu of flowers, a story or something you remember about Richard would be appreciated.

Thomas Golisano Hope Lodge, 1120 South Goodman Street, Rochester, New York 14620.
