He was an inspiration to all who knew him and especially to the students and faculty at Aquinas Institute where he taught theology. Friends may call Monday, 3-7PM at the Vay-Schleich & Meeson Funeral Home, 1075 Long Pond Road. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated Tuesday, 10:30 AM at Sacred Heart Cathedral. Interment, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Aquinas Institute or The Journey Home in his memory.
I want to express my sincere sympathy on the passing of Mike. Unfortunately, I just learned of his passing. I taught with Mike at Aquinas. He was one of the most compassionate, kind and spiritual man I have ever known. I am deeply saddened by the loss of Mike.
I wish I had known earlier so that I could have come to pay my respects. I heard on the news today and didn’t know the calling hours were tonight. He was a great teacher. I don’t remember a lot of teachers from highschool – however – Mr. Krup was a teacher I always liked and remembered. I graduated in 1993. Thank you for your guidence Mr. Krup. Rest in peace!

He’s been gone 14 years, and I haven’t seen him since 1995, when he taught one of the most important classes I ever took. He offered so much kindness and wisdom that I wish I could have thanked him for. Going to purchase this book of his poems: https://www.lulu.com/en/us/shop/michael-krupiarz/poems-by-an-urban-monk/hardcover/product-1e84d6p.html?page=1&pageSize=4
