Jere Krakow Obituary
Jere Krakow

Jere was born June 4, 1938 in Davenport, Nebraska.

Jere died quietly in his sleep on November 3, 2017, surrounded by family and loved ones. Jere was sustained by his Christian faith and went gracefully into the hands of a loving God.

His life was devoted to service in the National Park Service and the many communities in which he lived.

Jere was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Elfreida Krakow and his sister Sandra Smith.

He is survived by wife Jan; sons Jeff and Joel; and granddaughter Moira.

Jere loved the outdoors, whether camping, fishing or hiking and pursued knowledge and travel throughout his life. Jere had friends throughout the country and rarely met a stranger.

The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at Lovelace Hospital and Cancer Center, as well as Kindred Hospice.
