Rodman J. Krape, 72, of Sunset Beach, NC and formerly of Harrisburg and Dauphin, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday November 21, 2021 at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware. Born July 20, 1948, in Altoona, PA, Rod was a son of the late Thomas and Elizabeth (McKiernan) Krape. On June 7, 1969, he was united in marriage with Sheila E. (Fahey) Krape with whom he shared a loving and devoted union of nearly 52 years prior to her passing on May 6, 2021. Rod had worked in the Insurance industry, initially with Washington National Insurance Co. and later Aegis Security Insurance Co., for 41 years, before retiring in 2010. He had attended St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Catholic Church in Harrisburg and previously was a member of St. Matthew the Apostle and Evangelist Catholic Church in Dauphin. Rod had been a Board member of the Dauphin Athletic Association where he also coached Football, Softball and Baseball. He enjoyed traveling, golfing, bowling and going to the beach. A huge supporter of Penn State football and a season ticket holder for many years, he was also an avid Eagles and Steelers fan. While Rod appreciated the many blessings he had in his life, he was most thankful for his family – particularly his children and grandchildren, all of whom he loved more than life itself. Rod is survived by his son, Brian (Stephanie) Krape of Knoxville, TN; daughters, Allyson (Jonathan) Short, of Stewartstown and Kristina (John) Penrod, of Wilmington, DE and nine grandchildren, Emma, Cora, Annie, Casey, Tommy, Sidney, Benjamin, Clare and Sam. He is also survived by his sister, Suzy Krape and brother, Thomas Krape, both of Harrisburg; sisters-in-law, Barrie Fahey, of Vero Beach, FL, Judith (Leo) Razvillas, of New Cumberland and Ellen (Edward) Murtha, of Hamilton, NJ and brother-in-law, Michael (Valerie) Fahey, of Petaluma, CA. In addition to his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by a brother-in-law, Joseph Fahey. His Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday November 30, 2021 in St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Catholic Church, 2800 Paxton Church Road, Harrisburg, with Rev. Leo M. Goodman III, as Celebrant. Interment will follow in Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Mechanicsburg. Relatives and friends are invited to join the family for his viewing on Tuesday from 9:30 to 11:00 A.M. at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or at stjude.org.

Brian and family members. I am at a loss for words in Rod's passing to God's eternal place called heaven. Sending God's Blessings and Prayers to all. I will miss him terribly at ABC East as I do your Mom. Take care of each other.

To Rod's family, Although I knew Rod for a few short years, he was fun and always entertaining to be with during our golf outings. He will certainly be missed.
