Nelson John Cramer

 

Nelson John Cramer, age 43, passed away on Saturday, Aug. 22, 2009.

 

John was born on April 2, 1966, in Granville, the son of Robin and Sylvia (Corey) Cramer. John grew up in West Pawlet, Vt., and was a 1983 graduate of Granville High School. He held a master’s degree in psychology from the College of St. Joseph.

John was a forensic psychologist employed by the Glens Falls Hospital and the Washington County Department of Corrections. He was previously employed by the Washington County ARC program where he worked for more than 10 years and held many positions including resident manager. John served the residents of Granville and surrounding areas on the Granville Rescue Squad for more than 10 years.  He was also a brother Mason of Morning Flower Lodge 71 in Pawlet, Vt., and a former member of the Rupert (Vt.) Methodist Church.  

John loved being surrounded by family and friends, laughing and having a good time.  Kayaking, playing cards, snow shoeing, gardening and photography were only a few of his many passions.  Having no children of his own, he adored his nieces and nephews.  Wherever John was, laughter and love flowed freely and humor was never in short supply.  John was a great man with a great spirit who had an insatiable desire to know and experience all of life. 

John was predeceased by his father, Robin Cramer.

Survivors are his mother, Sylvia (Corey) Cramer; his brother, Jim Cramer and his wife, Gina, of West Pawlet and their children Sarah, Mimi, Rebekah,  and Nelson Cramer and Adam Clark and his sister Cindy Collard and her husband, Tom, also of West Pawlet, and their children, Katie and Corey. He is also survived by his uncle, Bruce Cramer of Northport, Fla.; and several  other aunts, uncles and cousins. He leaves behind his faithful companion, his dog Bubba and scores of friends, including a very special friend, “The Mayor” Tami Dennison.

A graveside service will held on Thursday, Aug. 27, at 11 a.m. at the Mountainview Cemetery in West Pawlet. The family will host a gathering following the funeral at the West Pawlet Firehouse.

Memorial contributions may be made in John’s memory to the Haynes House of Hope, POB 285, Granville, N.Y. 12832.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M King Funeral Home,

23 Church St., Granville, N.Y.
