“South Kitsap is such as great community,” Strakeljahn said. “I’ve made a lot of friends and always tried to provide great service to the community. I’ll miss the community for sure.”

Strakeljahn said it was a “sad day” when he notified his Port Orchard store employees he was moving to the East Bremerton store.

“It was a sad moment. We’ve have a lot of longevity in the Port Orchard store with people that has worked there for a long time,” he added. “We’re a pretty close family of people who work together. It was more of a family atmosphere.”

He has been employed by Fred Meyer for 18 years.
