CRAMER, Neil Allen
March 19, 1920 – September 29, 2017

Neil Allen Cramer, 97, a long time resident of Whittier passed away peacefully on September 29, 2017. He was the son of the late Vernon and Jane Cramer. Mary Lewis Cramer, his loving wife of 69 years, passed away November 11, 2010. He is survived by his three children; Don (Betsy) Cramer, Carol Ouimette, Dave (Barbara) Cramer and five grandchildren; Heather Lyon (Bill), Matt Cramer (Alex), Kristen Cramer ( Michael Robertson), Will Cramer, and Molly Cramer.

Neil was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and during the Depression moved to Lomita with his family when he was ten. He attended Narbonne High School, where he met and married his high school sweetheart, Mary. They moved the family to Whittier in 1951, and spent the next two decades raising three children. He served in the Second World War and return safely to his family in 1946. After the war, he returned to work at Alcoa Aluminum and eventually retired in 1985.. He and his son, Dave, started Cramer Engineering, which continues to mill aluminum products to this day. After retirement, Neil and Mary traveled the world. A sense of adventure and their passion for wildlife conservation took them to South America, Asia, Africa, Europe, and all of North America.

All of his children and grandchildren will remember the wonderful camping experiences throughout our nation's National Parks and swimming in a lovely pool in Whittier where we gathered for summer fun and holidays. Neil loved to golf with his buddies and collect coins for his grandchildren. He will be sorely missed.

He will be interred at Rose Hills, Whittier at 1:00 pm, Saturday, October 7, 2017.
