CHARLES RICHARD KRAMER age 75, passed away peacefully in his sleep on February 21, 2013. Beloved father of David Kramer of Van Nuys, California, Katie Kramer of Huntington Woods, Michigan, and Jordan (Mary) Kramer of Melbourne, Florida and grandfather to Nate Becker, Quinn Kramer and Harper Kramer. Chuck grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and spent most of his adult life in the Detroit area. He never retired from his chosen profession as a marriage counselor. His lifelong curiosity for listening to people’s stories, his compassionate heart for wanting to be of service, and his remarkable ability to make those in his life feel at the center of his universe, were all qualities that served him well in his career, his friendships and his family life.
