Klaus B. Kramer, 76, of Fort Smith, Arkansas passed away on Sunday, January 17, 2021 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. He was born on March 23, 1944 in Erlangen, Germany to Johan Bernhart and Betty (Klaussner) Kramer. He was a computer programmer and a U.S. Army veteran.

He is survived by his daughters, Cristina Carter and her husband Robert of Fort Smith, AR and Alexandra Kramer of Rockville, MD; two sons, Nicklaus Kramer of Fredrick, MD and Patrick Kramer of Sykesville, MD; a brother, Peter Kramer and his wife MaryAnn of Oklahoma City, OK; nine grandchildren; Anthony, Aaron, Dillon, Jackie, Seth, Ireland, James, Ashley and Isabella, four great grandchildren and his cousins, Vivien Crea and Constanza Wales.

He spent many years of his life working and raising his family in the DC Metro area. He was devoted to his children, his family, his friends and his community and was heavily involved with the local PWP so that all families could have experiences that they may not have been able to otherwise. He loved spending summers at the beach with his family, taking annual camping trips, and was an avid Capitals hockey fan.

He was strong, always speaking his mind, and taught his children to work hard and not make excuses. He was many things to many people and most assuredly left his mark on those who knew him.

He retired to Arkansas in 2004 where he enjoyed the peace and serenity of living outside of the city with his puppy Waffles at his side. He had faced many battles over the past few years that few would have the strength to overcome. He took his last walk on January 17, 2021 surrounded by love and support from those who he loved and supported for so long.

At his request, no service will be held and the family will hold a private remembrance at a later date.

I can't believe it. This larger than life man who made such an impression on so many has left us with so many wonderful memories, four awesome kids and lots of grandkids. I will always be so very thankful for the love and kindness you showed Jenn and me and the example you set for me as a single parent. I never watch hockey without thinking of you :) and I saved the lil Caps shirt you gave to Jenn years ago. Love you, Klaus, may you now rest in peace.

Love, Becky
