Larry Kramer

Larry Kramer, 74, passed away after a ten year battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). He was born August 27, 1939 in Stuart, NE to Margaret (Keuter) and John Kramer, Sr. His work career consisted of 28 years as a maintenance planner for Coors Container, 9 years as an industrial engineer for Burlington Northern Railroad, and 3 years as a high school teacher. After retirement he continued to work part time for Our Lady of the Pines Catholic Church in Conifer, CO. His children's and grandchildren's fondest memories involve their mutual love of fishing. Before he became ill, there were more days than we can count that he was fishing with at least one child or grandchild. Larry was also a huge sports fan. Broncos or Rockies, he tried to listen to every one of their games. His greatest love was the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team.
