Marshalltown High School
Class of 1958

In Memory of Shim Krantman

Seyman "Shim" Krantman, 80, of Marshalltown, passed away Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at the Bickford of Marshalltown. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, there will be a private ceremony for family and a few close friends announced at a later date. Memorials may be designated to the Bickford of Marshalltown, where Shim found great comfort over the last 4 months and made many new friends (special thanks to Bianca, Denessa, and all others that looked after Dad and made him feel at home). Their address is 101 Newcastle Rd, Marshalltown, IA 50158. Online condolences may be sent to

Shim was born March 30, 1940 in Marshalltown to James and Annabelle (Arranow) Krantman. Shim began working for his father and eventually taking over the family business known as Krantman's Steel. Later in life Shim went to work for his friend Dick Woolridge selling cars at S. 6th Street Auto. In June, 1963, Shim married Carol (Byrd) Winters and they shared two children, Chad and Valerie. Later in life, Shim found his true love, Vickie Klar, and they were married on August 24th, 2002. They were united in marriage until Vickie's untimely death in June of 2019. Before Vickie's passing, they enjoyed spending time with special friends Dick & Connie Woolridge and Dick & Nancy Klar. They loved traveling, listening to the Elvis channel, watching Chad and grandson Zach play 16" softball every summer, and were quite a popular pair at Meskwaki Casino. Shim was an avid sports fan. His love for sports were evident through his sponsorship and support of both AAU basketball and 16" softball. Shim was very proud to be inducted into the 16" softball Hall of Fame in 1995 and could be seen every summer hanging out at the Marshalltown softball complex. He was also an avid Iowa Hawkeye fan, Chicago Bears fan, Los Angeles Dodgers fan and Los Angeles Lakers fan.

Left to cherish his memory are children, Chad (Sue) Krantman and Valerie Krantman; sister, Harriet (Ed) Krantman-Hart; Grand Children, Sara (Marc) Krantman, Kelsey (Elliot) Hieronymus, Zach (Brittany) Krantman, Avery Van Meter and Riley Latare; three great-grandchildren, Sophia, Lucius and Myles. Shim was preceded in death by his wife, Vickie, parents James and Annabelle Krantman, and sister Rochelle.

 School Hymn

  Through the years at our MHS, 
  Red and blue will proudly fly;
  And the spirit of it lingers 
  As each year goes by.
  Many happy times together 
  Spent in perfect harmony
  All these memories we will cherish
  MHS of thee.

Lyrics by Marilyn Lawrence
