Bernardus "Ben" Josephus Maria Kramer
Mr. Kramer I am so sorry I found you after you had passed. I was looking for you and didn't look hard enough online. I do remember you very fondly from French I, Sept. of '62 your first year of teaching. You had to leave for a very short while due to your citizenship. I really missed you then and now, your great smile and I loved your voice. I can still hear it in my head. Just wanted to let you know that the CHS class of '64 is having their 50th reunion in a few weeks and I'm sure you will be spoken about. If your family reads this I just want to say I am one of many students who remember you very dearly.
Ben all the years I worked for you we became good friends, Carol was so special to you, when you talked about her and your son's your eyes would light up! I am so glad we got together with Carol and you a few years ago for dinner. I will miss you my friend, until we meet again,

You will be missed. You always made me feel like part of your family. Your quick smile and sense of humor always made me comfortable and at ease.
Ben and I were on the faculty at Chino High School together. He was a great teacher, knew his subject and well liked by his students. He had a good sense of humor and a ready smile. He contributed much to many students and staff. A real loss. John Casey
A wonderful man,mentor and my government teacher. You were the one who made it possible for me to graduate mid term in 1968, so I could marry my sailor, to whom I'm still married. You worked me through government till I passed it. Something know other teacher had been able to do. You were patient, kind and also funny. I always looked forward to seeing you and your wife at our class reunions.You will be missed. My prayers go out for your wonderful family.
