Guenter Kremer Obituary
On March 19, 2014, Guenter Kremer - father, grandfather, uncle and brother-in-law - was called home. 
He was born Sept. 10, 1922, the youngest child of Baumeister Wilhelm and Helene Kremer in Gladbeck, Germany. During childhood and young adulthood, he witnessed the fundamental transformation from the Weimar Republic to the dictatorship of the Third Reich. 
After the war, he studied civil engineering in Karlsruhe. In 1954, he married the love of his life, Elisabeth Reuter. For 30 years, he led and grew his father-in-law's construction business. His company built churches, apartments, houses, malls, industrial buildings and bridges in the Bonn area. He worked nonstop throughout the year with only a two-week ski vacation with his family in the Alps during Christmas season when construction was low.
In 1978, as neither of his two sons showed any inclination of joining the construction business, he sold his company. He and Elisabeth looked for a nice place to retire. After several years in Switzerland and Andorra, they settled down for good in Fairbanks in the late '90s. They liked living here: the people, the challenge of improving their English, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing up to his 87th year and their strong church community. His faith was the cornerstone in his life. He was administered last rites by Father Clint shortly before he passed away.
Guenter was preceded in death by his wife, Elisabeth; parents and five siblings. He will live on in the memory of the family he leaves behind, Ludwig Kremer with Jennifer and Lukas, many relatives in Germany and Bernhard Kremer, of Fairbanks.
He will be cremated today. A funeral Mass will follow at a later date.
Arrangements were entrusted to Chapel of Chimes Funeral Home.
