Marvin Anthony Kraemer, aged 84, passed peacefully on September 13, 2023, in Verona, Wisconsin. Born on August 5, 1939, to Sylvester and Mary (Walsh) Kraemer, he devoted over five decades to Carnes Company in Verona. Marvin proudly served in the Army National Guard and was a respected member of American Legion Post #398 in Plain, Wisconsin.
Marvin's life celebrated the beauty of simplicity. He found solace in the outdoors through hunting, fishing, and tending to his land. His warm spirit thrived within his community, and his sense of humor was remembered by all who knew him. Marvin's adventurous soul often led him to visit his son and explore Alaska, a place dear to his heart. Above all, Marvin cherished time with his friends, family, sons, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
He is survived by two children: Clifford (Annie) Kraemer of Anchorage, Alaska, and Christopher (Samantha) Kraemer of Verona. He leaves behind five sisters: Rosemary Plath of Hastings, Minnesota, Marcellyne Amann of Cudahay, Judy Keenen of Darby, Montana, Delphine Koenig, and Elsie Perkins of Madison. He is survived by two brothers: Cyril of St. Paul, Minnesota, and Allen of Plain. Marvin is survived by five grandchildren: Cierra (Eddie) Pili, Emily Kraemer, Noah Kraemer, Primrose Kraemer, Adelaide Kraemer and Emmeline Kraemer, as well as four great-grandchildren: Neveah, Layla, Evelynn, and Anthony. He is also fondly remembered by numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters: Rita Adams and Agatha Rolstad; and six brothers: Wendell, Leon, Harold, Joseph, Jim, and Adrian (who passed away at birth). He also leaves behind several brothers and sisters-in-law, including Florence Kraemer, John Keenen, Alan Rolstad, Richard Amann, Merle Koenig, Donald Harwood, and Ray Perkins.
Sons, Clifford and Christopher, would like to extend a special thank you to Agrace and Four Winds Manor in Verona, WI. In lieu of flowers and memorials, donations may be made in his name to Agrace or the American Legion Post #398.
