He was born on September 21, 1942 in Chambersburg, PA to the late Earl C., Sr. and Margarette L. (Rock) Cramer.

Ron attended Chambersburg schools and proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1960 to 1964. From 1964 to 1966, he worked in security for the former Samuel Dixon State Hospital, South Mountain, PA and thereafter working 30 years as an artillery supervisor with Letterkenny Army Depot, Chambersburg, PA. Retiring from Letterkenny in 1995, he worked a few years for Sesco in Mont Alto, PA and later security for the Waynesboro and Chambersburg Hospitals from 2000 to 2013.

In addition to his love of being a beloved and devoted husband, dad and grandfather, he loved his Lord. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoyed sharing those adventures and travel with his family.

Ron was a lifetime member of Letterkenny Rod and Hunting Club, Adams County Fish and Game, the former Hitching Post Hunting Club, Waynesboro Fish and Game and Joe Stickell American Legion Post #15, Waynesboro.

Cramer, Jr. of Mont Alto; one daughter, Tamely Beaver and her husband, Kevin of Greencastle; four grandchildren, Kyle Beaver and Kristi Beaver of Greencastle and Kayli Cramer and Kyle Cramer of Florida; one great-grandson, Karson of Greencastle; two brothers, Charles Cramer of South Mountain and Harold Cramer of Carlisle; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers, Earl Cramer, Jr., Robert Cramer and Daniel Cramer.

It was Ron’s request to have no public services, but to extend these special words. “To all my remaining relatives, good neighbors and friends to whom I could not say good-bye, thank you for all your kindness, caring, laugher and friendship that were gifts to my life. God bless you all.”
