THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Richard L. Cramer
Richard L. Dick Cramer, 75, of Menasha, passed away late Thursday, Oct. 31.
Born in Oconto on March 12, 1938 to the late Frances and Earl Cramer, he married Pam Carey Sept. 9, 1975 and they raised three daughters.
He was a proud Navy veteran, having served during the Korean War. He was a hardworking man in the maintenance field for many years and worked at R& B Grinding in Racine before relocating his family to Fullerton, Ca., where he was employed by N & M Health, and then Red Hill Lutheran Church and School. After retiring eight years ago, he and his family moved to Menasha. He enjoyed four-wheeling with his wife all over the country, including many trips to Michigan and Kentucky, spending time with his family and being outdoors. In his younger years he enjoyed hunting and fishing with his brother and in-laws.
He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Pam; three daughters, Carey (Jason Van Eperen) McElrath, Sandy (Nick) Cramer-Scherer and Cindy (Tomas Lopez) Cramer; five grandchildren; two sisters, Lois (Craig) Chittum and Cyndy (Jeff) Mech; a brother, William (Sandy) Cramer and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and mother-in-law and father-in-law, Evelyn and James Carey.
