The Kruer family would like to thank the Rockford Chamber of Commerce for this generous award named after one of the most important mottoes of Pete Kruer. “Have a Servant’s Heart.”
If Pete has one legacy we hope it is to “have a servant’s heart.” He led by an example of honesty, kindness, love, and humility – not only to his family – but his entire Rockford community. Pete taught us change happens when you engage and invest in the community which supports you, and we are only as good as the people around us.
That is why he was able to be great. He had all of you backing him up.
We are dedicated to carrying on that legacy, especially here at the store. We sell hardware, but the smiles and the genuine care and service of our Rockford Hardware family will always be free.
