David Anthony Krems

June 11, 1984 — July 8, 2023

David Anthony Krems, 39, of Waterloo, NE, passed away on July 8, 2023, in Council Bluffs, IA, as a result of an auto accident.

David was born on June 11, 1984, in Grant, Nebraska, to Robert M and Beth (Keever) Krems. After graduating from high school in his hometown of Grant, NE, David moved to Omaha to attend college at UNO. He then fulfilled his dream of living closer to the mountains by moving to Fort Collins, CO, for a short time. He later returned to Omaha to welcome his son Cooper into the world. In Nov 2017, David married Rebekah M. Muth, and the couple made their home in Omaha before buying their forever home in Waterloo, NE.

Throughout his life, David excelled in various sales positions. From cars to cell phones, investments to nursing, he worked hard and was highly skilled in every role he undertook.

David was a strong, Godly man who led his family with overflowing love. He spent his life showing others the joy and love he believed Jesus had gifted him. While he loved Sunday morning gatherings, his true form of worship was his daily walk with the Lord.

David cherished watching Cooper play baseball, hitting golf balls on beautiful days, traveling to tropical destinations, and making new friends wherever he went. He also relished the times he spent on family trips and making memories with his nieces and nephews. However, his natural habitat was hanging out with his family and friends in the backyard, under the stars, next to a bonfire.

David was preceded in death by his grandparents, Melvin and Margaret Krems and Ira and Viola Keever.

Survivors include his wife and son, Rebekah and Cooper of Waterloo; parents, Bob and Beth Krems of Grant; sisters, Pennie Krems and Kimberly (Wade) Hill; the mother of his son, Kasi Wolfert; nieces Meeka Hoke, Shelbie Hoke, Lila Hill, Emelia Hill, Viola Hill, Sofia Hill, and Alivia Hill; nephews, Steel Hoke and Korbin Hoke; along with loving aunts, uncles, cousins and many other relatives and friends
