Evan Kraemer


Evan Michael Kraemer, age 24, earned his angel's wings with peace and dignity on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2019.

Evan is the cherished son of Mindy A. (Moore) Kraemer and Cary J. Kraemer, and the brother of Justin. Evan will always be in the hearts of his  grandparents Joseph Andre and Donna Moore and Roger Kraemer; and aunts and uncles Anita (Dale) Szyszkiewicz, Becky (Cliff) Giese, Joseph Andre Moore Jr. (Kimberley), Dan (Jennifer) Moore, Melissa (John) Flaig, Ron (Kim) Kraemer and Karen Kraemer.

Evan is further survived by cousins Sarah (Courtney) and David (Becky) Szyszkiewicz, Tom and Alex Giese, Nicholas and Hayden Moore, Samuel, William and Andrew Flaig, Christopher Kraemer and Jill Vorpahl. Evan will also be remembered by special friends Rhonda Fellenz, Jeri Williams, Brittany de Groot, Kayla Semple, Michelle Cramer, Nicci Andersen, Judy O'Hara, Bonnie Penkwitz, Lori Schultz and Travis Wick; his worldwide Kleefstra Syndrome family; and his constant companion Bob the Builder.

Evan was preceded in death by his grandmother Marlys (Opine) Kraemer.

Evan was a lifelong resident of Cedarburg and is a 2014 graduate of Cedarburg High School. He enjoyed being a part of Best Buddies and the Pace program through Balance Inc. He loved music.

“Barbara Ann,” “Happy Birthday” and “Deck the Halls” were his go-to songs. He danced to Raffi, Katie Perry, Taylor Swift, Imagine Dragons, Frank Sinatra, Billy Bass and every Christmas song he ever heard.

Summerfest was one of his favorite events to attend. He also loved to travel, whether it was to visit his beloved cows while riding in the car or flying off to Boston to be with his Kleefstra Syndrome family, tour the city and watch the whales on an ocean cruise,   or visit amusement parks in Texas and Florida.  

Evan was an avid movie watcher and especially loved “Cats” (the musical), “Rocket Gibralter,” “Annie Get Your Gun” and “The Sandlot.”  The Rugrats, Elmo and, of course, Barney were very special to him.  

Evan loved to go for walks and especially loved to stop along Cedar Creek to watch the fishermen. He loved fish and fishing and was also a lover of the water — swimming pool, sink, waterfall, bathtub, ocean, lake,  aquarium, creek, puddle or river — it didn't matter. Evan loved the water.

Without words, Evan made a difference, touching the hearts and lives of many people around the world.

A celebration of Evan's life to share our stories and memories will be held at the Peter Wollner American Legion Post 288, W57 N481 Hilbert Ave., Cedarburg, on Sunday, Feb. 10, from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be a brief eulogy at 3 p.m.

Arrangements are being handled by Mueller Funeral Home in Cedarburg.
