Dennis G. Kraemer

September 3, 1945 — September 28, 2018

Dennis Gene Kraemer, age 73, of Bremen, passed away, Friday, September 28, 2018, at Community Memorial Hospital in Marysville, KS from an aggressive form of lung cancer.  He was born September 3, 1945, the son of Fenton Albert and Enola Mary (Roever) Kraemer.Dennis was baptized into the body of Christ on Sunday, September 16, 1945, at Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, where he later confirmed his faith on Sunday, May 17, 1959 under the instruction of Rev. Wilson R. Maurer.  Upon graduating from MHS in 1963 he moved to Topeka and began a career of building tires for Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. and later sold Moorman Feed.Dennis was married to Constance Christine Meyn on July 6, 1968 by Rev. Maurer, and they later returned to the Marysville area to raise their family.  Their marriage was blessed with 3 sons, 1 daughter, and 16 grandchildren.  They were able to joyously celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary earlier this year, before he became ill.After returning to the Marysville area, Dennis spent 14 years mentoring, guiding, and touching the lives of his sons and other young boys as their baseball coach and friend.  His teams won many championships and trophies over the years, but more than baseball, it was most important to him was to instill sound integrity, and to encourage and build the confidence of the young men he’d been given the opportunity to mentor.  He taught them how to both win and lose with grace.In later years he enjoyed gathering with a couple different men’s groups for a friendly game of cards and lively discussions on politics and religion.  His faith was always very important to him and he found it easy to discuss a variety of biblical concepts with anyone he met.   He also enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s sporting events and being outdoors, gardening.His greatest joy, however, was found in spending time with family and especially his grandchildren.Dennis is survived by his wife, Connie Kraemer, Bremen; 4 children: Mike (Helen) Kraemer, Keats, Doug (LaRae) Kraemer, Manhattan, Jennifer (Allen) Perry, Blue Rapids, and Jeff (Stacey) Kraemer, St. George; 16 grandchildren: Morgan Kraemer, Tristin & Braeden Kraemer, Trey, Isaac, Jordynn, Aspen, Alyssa, Elijah, Ephraim, and Selah Perry, Alexander, Nicholas, Benjamin, Isabella, and Kallista Kraemer; his  sister, Lois (Jim) Cohorst; and several nieces, nephews, and friends.He was preceded in death by his parents, Fenton and Enola Kraemer, and his sister, Lorna Minge and will live on in the fond memories and fun stories of his children and grandchildren.Visitation was Monday, October 1, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Kinsley Mortuary.  The family received friends from 6 to 8 p.m.A funeral service was held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 2 at Mt.
