Brett Joseph Kramer, 43, went home to be with his heavenly father on Sunday, March 3, 2019. He died at home in Basehor, Kan., from a heart attack.
Brett was born Jan, 20, 1976, to Delene (Jefferies) Kramer and the late David E. Kramer in Indianapolis, Ind. He graduated from Franklin Central High School, where he enjoyed playing baseball and football. He went on to study engineering at Purdue University. He received his bachelor’s degree in business management from WGU. His career has always been in the construction industry, working for Davidson Industries, Contract Lumber, Ind., and Neighbor Construction, Kan. He started his own design business, KO Components, Ind., in 2016.
He married Lisa (Siecke) Kramer on July 31, 2010. He was the papa of two senior dogs, Madison and Josie, and the foster dad of several other dogs. Together they enjoyed camping, geocaching, the theater and mostly being together. He was given the gift of life and tried to always show respect and kindness to anyone he met. Volunteering to help the homeless, the elderly and animals, especially the senior dogs, were just some of his passions. You could also find him reading, studying new topics, woodworking and discussing where he wanted to travel.
He is survived by his spouse, Lisa Kramer; mother Delene Kramer; brother Jared Kramer; half-brother Darrell Kramer (Toyua); half-sister Whitney (Robbie) Hopkins; nieces and nephews, Cameron Kramer, Katie Kramer, Ian (Jena) Siecke, Dylan Siecke and Kaitlyn Siecke; and mother- and father-in-law Celia and Ron Siecke of Pilger.
He is preceded in death by his father, David E. Kramer; his half-brother, Eric Kramer; and his grandparents, Milo and Betty Jefferies.
