He was 58. Mr. Kratzer's name appeared briefly in the national media in late 1990 after he developed the IraqiWacker, a wooden paddle-ball toy that featured a caricature of Saddam Hussein's face. He donated 1,000 toys to U.S. troops massed in Saudi Arabia. "If nothing else, these IraqiWackers will sharpen our troops' eye-hand coordination and relieve the boredom," Mr. Kratzer quipped in a Dec. 1990 article in The Sun. The BushWacker, a similar toy with a picture of President George H.W. Bush, garnered less attention.
