Donald J. Gramke of Fenton, Mo., died Tuesday, June 20, 2006.
Beloved husband of Elaine, nee Mueller, Gramke; devoted father of Rachel and Erica Gramke; loving son of Florence S. and the late Lawrence F. Gramke; dear brother of Carol Jean (Phil) Hildebrand, Janice (Brad) Poulter, Craig (Patty) Gramke and Kent Gramke and the late Larry Gramke and Pamela A. Gramke; dear brother-in-law of Jeff (Susie) Mueller and Mary Gramke; dear son-in-law of Tom and Connie Mueller; our dear uncle, nephew, cousin and friend.
Don was a loving husband and father. His two daughters were the center of his world and his love for them knew no boundaries. He never missed a game or special event for them. He also was quietly involved in an organization that helps many people turn their lives in a new direction. He knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior and is now with the Lord and his family in the Kingdom of Heaven. His time with his family was spent happily wherever they were: hunting deer in the country, Rams' games, Cardinal games or just spending time at each other's homes.
