GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Loved ones will gather to pay their final respects to a beloved teacher who passed away last week.
Visitation for Dennis Kretschman is set for Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon at Arsulowicz Brothers in Walker with a memorial service to follow.
Kretschman, also known as ‘Mr. K’, was known to many for teaching at the Grand Rapids Public School’s zoo school thanks to a partnership between John Ball Zoo and GRPS.
Just this week, we stopped by the school where students where painting rocks to build a memorial for him.
Mr. K had been an educator for 44 years and leaves behind four children.
