Cecil was born August 14, 1935, to Ferdinand and Edna Kramer. On March 9, 1958 he married Shirley Bauer and together they raised four children, Dave, Brad, Ryan, and Mariah.
A gifted musician, Cecil enjoyed playing polkas and waltzes on the piano and accordion. He looked forward to his monthly visits to Elm Crest Manor to play accordion for the residents. Cecil treasured the times when his son, Brad, would join him in playing, until Brad’s passing in 2016. Cecil was looking forward to continuing the tradition with his granddaughter, Aurora, this summer.
Cecil is survived by his children, Dave, Ryan (Kari), and Mariah (Jesse); granddaughter, Aurora; daughter-in-law, Murrae; and sisters, Beverly, Evelyn, Ruby, LaVerne, and Hazel.
Cecil was preceded in death by his wife, Shirley; son, Brad; and brothers, Clarence, Raymond, and Ken.
