Robert Webb (Bob) Cramer, Sr. passed away on Sunday, November 29, in Manteca. Bob was born to Leroy and Ruth Cramer on January 4, 1932, in Rochester, New York. Bob served in the U.S. Army from 1949 to 1952. He married Elwanda Wilson on November 29, 1952. Elwanda preceded Bob in death on May 5, 2008.
Bob is survived by Bob Cramer, Jr. (Kim); Randell Cramer (Cathie); and Trina Cramer of Manteca, and Rhonda Durst (Doug) of Austin, Texas. He is also survived by his sister Penny Adams (Jim) of Ridgecrest, California. Bob enjoyed the company of thirteen grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, numerous nieces and nephews, and a large number of extended family members.
Bob lived in Alameda, California, from the early 1960s, residing there until 2002, when he and Wanda left the Bay Area and moved closer to the kids in Manteca.
A memorial service will be held in Manteca on Saturday, December 5, at 4 p.m. at the Almond Blossom Estates’ Club House, 1901 E. Yosemite Ave.
Bob will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and extended family. He enjoyed life to the fullest, made friends everywhere he went, and kept in contact with many of his family members throughout the years. Bob joined Wanda on the 57th anniversary of their marriage - they’re probably roller skating together again right now.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of San Joaquin, 3888 Pacific Avenue, Stockton, CA 95204-1953.
