Colonel John Theodore Kramers, affectionately known by friends and family as Ted was born on November 22, 1917, in New York City and died on December 4, 2012, in Elizabethtown, PA at the age of 95. Colonel Kramers was a distinguished U.S. Army Officer for 30 years, participating in most major battles in World War II in Europe and Northern Africa (field artillery). After retiring from the U.S. Army, he had a successful career as a stock broker with Wachovia Securities, Lebanon, PA before retiring at the age of 86.
Ted had many passions, some of which included traveling, swimming, intelligent discourse, and service to family, friends and country. He was always willing to share what he learned while at the same time remaining open to receiving new knowledge. Even as he advanced in years he stayed abreast of current events and was always looking for new challenges.
Ted is survived by his wife of 14 years Ellen Smuck Kramers of Elizabethtown, PA; his son Kraig Werner Kramers of McDonough, GA; his three grandchildren Kimberly Ann Polaski of San Diego, CA, Kelley Lynn Kramers-Tanga of Maui, HI, and Keri Ellen Kramers-Dove of Novato, CA; and five great-grandchildren Alexandra and Ethan Polaski, Ashley and Tyler Tanga, and Kai Dove. Ted is preceded in death by his former wife of 46 years, June Werner Kramers.
Arrangements will be made and announced at a later time, including interment and memorial service dates. Ashes will be interred in Annville, PA where Ted's first wife is buried. The Rohland Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
