Born on Nov 27, 1945 in Toledo, Ohio, James Joseph Krempa passed
from this life into eternity on Sept 18, 2018 in Boise, Idaho. Jim, a
proud US Navy Veteran, found joy in photography, the great outdoors, making
people laugh, his dog, and his family. Jim loved his children and
grandkids more than anything and enjoyed sharing in their lives. He loved
people and you could find him wherever people hung out, always making sure that
those he cared about were being taken care of. Jim was a hard worker,
creative and enjoyed many years of employment at Delafoil and Brush-Wellman,
where he built lasting friendships.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Bernadine
Krempa and his brother, Michael Krempa. Jim is survived by his children,
Julie Krempa, John (Vicki) Krempa, and CH (1LT) Sharon (Rob) McQueary (US
Army); and his grandchildren, Shane Krempa, GM2 Andrew Krempa (US Navy), Eugene
Sanders, Jourdyn McQueary, IT3 Nathan Krempa (US Navy), Bernadine McQueary and
Rowan McQueary; as well as his sister, Patricia Helvie, her two sons, Scott and
Brian and their families.
