FALMOUTH - Jeffrey Thomas Krumrine, known as "Tom" by his family and childhood Cape Cod friends, and as "Jeff" in college and later years in Newburyport, passed away on November 25, 2017 following a brief illness. Son of the late James F. Krumrine, he is survived by his mother, Irene Rovatti Krumrine, siblings, James B. Krumrine and wife, Oggie of Jacksonville, FL; Bruce Krumrine and wife, Julie of Santa Clarita, Calif., Cheryl Krumrine of Independence, VA; and Paula Hook and husband Walter of Whitestone, Va. He is also survived by nieces and nephews JJ, Kristel, Duncan and Griffin Krumrine; and Noah and Spencer Hook. For all who knew Jeff he will be remembered for his magnanimous personality and zeal for life. He always had a smile for everyone and a cheerful disposition. He lived life to its fullest, enjoying traveling the world with friends and family, going to Tanzania to help establish an orphanage, campaigning tirelessly for the Democratic Party, and volunteering for many organizations and charitable causes over the years. Jeff prided himself in being a "news and political junkie" and relished his time working on Governor Deval Patrick's campaign, previously heading the Newbury Democrat Committee, and liaising with all of his political connections locally and on "The Hill" when he lived in D.C. while attending George Washington University and completing a Master's Certificate in PACs and Political Management. He previously received a Bachelor's Degree from University of Massachusetts. Jeff was a committed and dedicated "Dem." Jeff loved his connections with family and friends and brought happiness and laughter to those who knew him. He believed life was to be lived in all ways big and small - and he did just that. He loved the ocean, having grown up in Bourne and lived in Newburyport. He had sailed the Caribbean and spent many years on sailing vessels, visiting St. John and Key West where he loved true 'island time.' He also loved the mountains and hiking, and was a music aficionado loving rock and roll and traveling to Hawaii to hear Pearl Jam play, a great memory of his. He was a World Cup Soccer fan and loved watching their matches with friends at The Port Tavern in Newburyport, where he also followed the games of his beloved New England Patriots. Jeff will be missed for his intelligence, wit, generosity and incredible sense of humor. A celebration of his love for life will be forthcoming. For those who want to give in remembrance of Jeff/Tom, donations may be sent to St. Paul's Church, Among Friends,166 High Street, Newburyport, MA 01950.

NEWBURYPORT - Doug would like to let you know that his work here is done. His spirit was released from his worn-out shell of a body and is now exploring a new ocean. He could not wait any longer. We all know he was not a man to sit still. He was surrounded by his wife and son when he left, it was a quiet release and of course, he did not want to cause us grief. Douglas L. Emery died on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at Anna Jaques Hospital of complications from esophageal cancer. He received a call, the kind of offer you can't refuse, for a job from which he will not be returning. This opportunity comes with a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time. Sixty-two years ago, Doug was born in Ipswich, son of the late Carl and Florence (Scottin) Emery. He was raised in Ipswich where he played high-school football, drove too fast and perfected his signature mustache. He went on to attend Laconia Technical College where he received his degree and learned a thing or two about engines. He went on to open his first marina so that he could stay close to the sea. He chose his path because he loved nothing more than the ocean. Perhaps the ocean chose this path for him. A captain was needed and he answered the call. In addition to his wife, Romie LeBlanc-Emery and his son, Ryan D. Emery of Ipswich, he is survived by a daughter, Jennifer S. Mederos and her husband, Rudy of Seattle; two grandchildren, Maximus and Leonidas Mederos; step-daughters, Jenee LeBlanc, Aimee Klee and her husband, Andy; step-granddaughter, Lillian Klee and a community of friends and family whose lives were made better having learned a thing or two from him. Everyone who remembers him is asked to celebrate his life in their own way. Here are some of the ways that his family will celebrate him: 1.We will stop and listen when we hear a motorcycle speed by. 2. We will always go to work... not matter what. 3. We will watch the sunset on the back side of the beach from our boats. 4. We will speed way too fast in those same boats through Fox Creek. 5. We will stop and smell the snow while racing through the woods on a snowmobile. 6. We will teach our kids to ski. 7. We will raise a glass of our favorite drink in his memory. A celebration of Doug's life will be held Sunday 1 to 4 pm at the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home, 6 High Street, Ipswich. At 3:30 p.m. we will invite all his friends and family to share a memory, a story or an anecdote. This summer his family and friends will gather with a fleet of boats and return him to the back side of the beach. Doug was not a flowery guy. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in his name may be made to the American Cancer Society, 25 Stuart St. Boston, MA 02116. If Doug had a chance to tell us his parting words he would like us to remember salt water is the cure for everything. Just be sure to remember everything in moderation.
