Suddenly at home on August 18, 2020, John passed away at the age of 68 years.
He was predeceased by his dad Norman (Bud) Kramble. He leaves behind his loving mom Audrey Kramble, his siblings, Bette (Elizabeth) Keweriga, and Rand (Randy) Kramble, and his sister-in-law Cindy Kramble. He is also survived by nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and longtime friends. He will be missed by many.
Due to health problems, John had to retire early. He had enjoyed his job and missed his co-workers very much. The challenges he faced did not stop him from long walks, bike riding and staying in close contact with friends and family. He got much joy from hearing what his great-nephews and great-nieces were up to.
John lived most of his life in Transcona where he was born. He loved his freedom and always marched to his own beat. Even when young he enjoyed long bike rides and exploring both the city and the country. In his early days, his favourite thing to do was to go to his grandparent's cottage at Almdal's Cove. There he could explore to his heart's content, clear, brush and chop firewood for his Grandma Kramble. He kept the wood box full and carried many pails of water.
Cremation has taken place. Due to Covid-19 there will be a small private gathering.
If desired, donations may be made to any organization helping preserve Manitoba lakes.
