Christopher Allan Kramer

May 28, 1953March 24, 2020

Christopher Allan Kramer, age 66, died after fighting a long battle with COPD on March 24, 2020, while in the comfort of his home surrounded by his family. Chris is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Cheryl Kramer, his two children, Jason Kramer and Rachel Kramer Bryant, 5 grandchildren, and his brother, Robert Craig Kramer and family. He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Alice Kramer. Chris was born on May 28, 1953 in Houston, Texas, to parents Bob and Alice Kramer. He graduated from Waltrip High School and went on to be a successful business owner for 32 years in the construction industry. Chris was a wonderful family man, a dedicated husband, a loving father, doting grandfather, and great friend to many. Chris was known to all as “the man in charge”. He had a calming effect on others and was a person people leaned on during times of need. He loved to take on remodeling projects in the homes of his children, brother, niece, nephew, and friends - it was his way of helping others build their lives. He enjoyed spending his free time surrounded by family and friends at the family creek house in Sargent, Texas. There are no funeral services planned at this time. The family will honor Chris in a private celebration of life at a later date. The family would like to thank you for all of the support and prayers during this time of loss.

I can't remember how many times Chris helped me out at work. He always had a solution to a construction problem. Come to think of it he also had a solution to Golf problems, Fishing problems, BBQ problems, etc. I could not help but love Chris. I will miss him.

Cheryl & Family, I am sorry for your loss. Chris was a great guy.

I am so sorry for your loss. I loved all the wonderful times we all spent together. Chris was such a family man. He loved Cheryl and his kids so much. He worked hard and helped so many. I will always picture him with a big smile, laughing, patting someone on the back. NEVER a dull moment, ever. Just a joy to have known him.

We always saw Chris at Kramer family gatherings. Well, gatherings is not the right word, PARTY is what they were. They always made everyone feel like part of the family. Chris was probably the best grill master we have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. He will be truly missed by family and extended family. Rest in Peace dear man.
