Obituary

Frederick Wayne Kramer, 92 of Bulger, passed away on March 7, 2020 in Washington Hospital. The things most important to Wayne and his wife were new birth; spring trilliums in the forest, new seedlings in the greenhouse, and new babies in the home. And so, it is absolutely fitting that Wayne Kramer, son, brother, husband, father, grand and great, breathed his last breath as the nursery lullaby chimes rang throughout the entire Washington Hospital announcing a new birth.

He was born on July 17, 1927 in South Hills, the son of the late George and Martha Heaps Kramer.

Wayne was a WWII Navy veteran and a retired superintendent of Midway Coal and also worked at Jefferson Coal and Aloe Coal Co. He was a member of St. Columbkille Church, enjoyed canning, hunting, fishing, gardening, camping, jelly making and baking. He was very active with the Midway Seniors. Wayne was the last surviving founder of Pack and Troop 1396 of Robinson Twp., where he was the recipient of the highest award in Boy Scouts of America, the Silver Beaver. He also was the past Master of Burgettstown Grange 1502. Together, Mr. Kramer and his late wife owned and operated Kramer’s Greenhouse for over forty years.

Surviving are his children; Mary Catherine “Kay” (late Larry) Snatchko of Burgettstown, Mark (Judy) Kramer of Bavington, David (Jan) Kramer of Hickory and Chris (Dawn) Kramer of Hanover Twp., and daughter-in-law Mary Beth Kramer of North Fayette Twp, siblings; Betty (Nicholas) Ulrich and Roy (Rae) Kramer. Also surviving are 15 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren.

Wayne is preceded in death by his wife, Helen J. Kramer, who he married on November 27, 1947 and his son George Kramer and siblings; George (Ruth) Kramer, Mildred (Michael) Duran and Jaunita (Wilbur) Shoup.

Friends and family will be received on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at Thomas-Little Funeral Service, Inc. and Crematory, 305 main St., Imperial (724-695-2800). A mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Columbkille on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 10 a.m. A luncheon will be held immediately following mass and interment will follow at Grandview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully request donations be made to Mr. Kramer’s special-needs great-grandson, Hunter Kramer, which can be mailed to Thomas-Little Funeral Service Inc., 314 West Lincoln Ave., McDonald, Pa, 15057.

Love and sympathy to the entire Kramer family.

Wayne and Helen were the epitome all that’s good in our world. From their volunteerism in the community and scouting to their devotion to family and friends, they set a glowing example for those fortunate enough to be touched by their love.

As a fatherless boy, the lessons Wayne provided as Scoutmaster of what was then Troop 96 of the Washington-Green Council remain at the core of my moral center. With Wayne’s nurturing, I eventually made it to Eagle Scout…one of the grand moments of my youth.

Beyond scouting, the Kramer’s became a second home where we not only played, but worked hard picking corn and strawberries or cutting pit posts for the coal company. Perhaps the greatest of memories are the times spent in Tionesta getting in trouble with George and Dave!

It’s hard to think about Wayne without Helen, but beautiful to think of them reunited again and, surely, making heaven a better place just as they did for us here on earth.
