James William Krepps | Passages

Born Oct. 30, 1940 in New Eagle, Pa. Died Nov. 12, 2012 at home with his family by his side.

James joined the Navy in 1959, serving 20 years as a submariner. He was stationed at Pearl Harbor when he met the love of his life, Constance. They married in January 1977. James spent the rest of his career working at Submarine Base Bangor, finally retiring in 2003 to a life of family, crabbing, shrimping and fishing.

His family and friends will remember him as a simple and caring man who would do anything or help anyone with nothing expected in return. Many will remember James for his years of dedication to North Kitsap Little League and North Kitsap Babe Ruth. He will also be remembered as “Papa” to many of his young friends and neighbors.

Survived by his wife, Constance; sons, Fred and Chad; daughters-in-law, Heather and Jessica; grandchildren, Leandra, Evian, Kiara, Emma, Isabella and Gavin of Port Angeles, and Adora, Keegan and Tatumn of Poulsbo.
