He is survived by his wife, Doris (nee Storm) Kremer; his three sons and their wives (Chris & Charlotte Kremer, Tony & Rhonda Kremer, and Carl & Johanna Kremer), as well as his three daughters and their husbands (Susan & Kevin Brown, Maria & Kirke Elshoff, and Kathleen & Ed Janosky). He is also survived by his sister, Kathy Pappas, and his brother, John Kremer. Carl’s parents, Edward and Mary (nee Boerger) Kremer, along with his brother, Robert Kremer, passed away previously.

Carl was born on June 13, 1929, in Dayton, OH. He graduated from Chaminade High School in 1948, where he played basketball and was a stand-out football player. He then attended the University of Dayton. Carl worked as a brick mason for more than 40 years and was a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, in Troy, OH, where he raised his family.

Carl was an avid sports enthusiast, following his favorite teams, especially Notre Dame football, UD basketball, and Moeller High School basketball. He also loved music and going to dances with his wife. But more than anything, Carl valued his family, faith, and hard work.
