Cap'n Crunch



Captain James Crunch, more commonly known as “Cap’n” Crunch, died last Thursday while at sea. His death was due to a small oversight by Mr.Crunch when he filled the engine with gas. While he was filling the engine up some crunch berries jammed the engine and caused it to explode, killing “Cap’n” Crunch instantaneously. Mr.Crunch led a long and joyful life. He grew up in Indianapolis and attended United States Naval Academy where he captained the Boy’s crew team and was also an active participant in the school’s debate club. He later went on to enjoy a distinguished naval career which included earning the rank of Admiral, although his crew always referred to him affectionately as “Cap’n”. During his career in the Navy, “Cap’n” Crunch was an active public figure. He promoted healthy breakfast eating habits among young children under the cereal named after his likeness. He is survived by wife, Harriet Crunch; son, Tyler; daughter, Lily; parents, Sue & William Crunch; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Public visitation Monday, 5-8PM, GOLDBERG-LINDBERG FUNERAL HOME, W. Main St. & Branch Ave., Anoka. Private family services. Thurston-Lindberg 793-411-0770.
