James Max Krell

Dec 09, 1949 – Apr 27, 2017

James Max Krell of Silverthorne, CO died suddenly April 27, 2017 from acute heart failure. He was born and raised in Kingsport, Tennessee, received his BS from Michigan State University, and PhD from the University of Maryland. For decades he served the healthcare and banking industries through information technology and systems support. Jim had a brilliant mathematical mind; he was a demanding teacher and fond of challenging his sons. But his greatest joys were theology and mysticism; he could spend hours sharing his faith with friends. He had a thunderous voice and loved music, especially music's ability to reveal God. To his family he was a steadfast and selfless provider, and he was a fiercely devoted friend. Even as his body failed, he kept praising God. Surviving James are his wife Linda, sons David, Robert, Ben, and John, their wives and many grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Lutheran World Relief, the American Red Cross, or Saint Francis Service Dogs. There will be a celebration of life service July 8, 2017 at 11:00 AM at Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church in Lakewood, CO.
