Family-Placed Death Notice
KRAMER, Milton Milton Kramer, 89 of Atlanta GA passed away on Sunday, September 16, 2012. Born in Brooklyn NY to Ida and Frank Krinetsky, his family moved to Atlanta in 1937 when he was 14. After leaving high school, he worked with his father manufacturing men's headwear and traveled the South selling men's hats to the local dry-goods stores. He joined the Army in 1943, training in England prior to being sent to France with General Patton's 5th armored division. It was while he was in England that he met and fell in love with his wife, Beryl Brown Kramer. After the war, he returned to Atlanta and sent for Beryl to join him as his wife. Milton co-founded Goodwear Hat Mfg., Co in downtown Atlanta with his father, and upon his father's retirement, continued growing it into a successful business on his own-it was one of the last remaining independently owned men's fur-felt hat manufacturing factories in the US prior to its sale in 1985. He continued to put his extensive knowledge of the hat manufacturing process and industry to use creating other affiliated business ventures until his retirement. He was an avid gin player and enjoyed playing the game with his group of "regulars" for many years. In addition to Beryl Kramer, his wife of 66 years, Milton is survived by his three children, daughter Carol Young and grandchildren Joshua and Matthew, Son and Daughter in law, Dr. Gerald & Jan Kramer of Savannah, GA, son, Dr. Russell & Cheryl Kramer and grandchildren Adam, Paul and Zachary, Sister Norma Ambery, his dearest friend, Richard Harrell as well as many nieces, nephews, and great nephews. The family wishes to thank our 3 "angel" caregivers for providing compassionate and wonderful care for the past 18 months. Sign on-line guestbook: www.edressler.com.
