John Phillip Cramer of Cuba, Missouri was born in Apple Valley, California on Monday, July 29, 1963. He left from this life on Saturday, February 6, 2021 at the age of 57 years, 6 months, and 9 days old.
John was a loving son, brother, father, grandfather, and friend. He had a love for fishing, hunting, riding his Harley, and most of all making memories with his family. He was a simple man that was always the life of the party, he always knew what to say to bring a smile to your face. His laughter was contagious. If there was ever a time when you were in need, he would be the first one to show up. His warm grizzly bear hugs were one of the best and safest places you could be.
He had many goals in life, the first being to raise his three daughters to be strong, independent women, that stand up for what they believe and to never lose sight of who they are. He was also very motivated to teach his grandchildren about life and nature. He loved going on outings with the grandchildren, anywhere from the river, fishing, to the circus, fudge shop or a simple pizza party at home. He truly cherished his time with his grandchildren.
John was preceded in death by his mother Annette (O'Jile) Cramer, father Wyatt Cramer, father-in-law Charles M. Moehlmann, mother-in-law Edeltraud Moehlmann, brother William Cramer, son Johnny Cramer, and granddaughter Karmin Ford.
Those who are left to treasure his memory and to continue his legacy are his three daughters, Heather (Martin) Cramer-Miller, Wendy (Paul) Cramer-Lee, Bridget (Clarence) Cramer-Witcher; five grandchildren April Miller, Johnathan Cramer, Jaxon Buerk, Zakarie Ford, and Kaylynn Ford; former wife Deborah Cramer; five brothers Mike (Diane) Cramer, Thomas (Sharon) Cramer, Clayton (Mary)Cramer, Scott (Kathy) Cramer, Jeff (Toni) Cramer; many nieces and nephews, family and friends.
