Curtis Kramme

Curtis John Kramme, born May 29, 1961, passed away after a year-long battle with cancer on April 22, 2017.

Curt was born to John and Gayla Kramme in Temple, Texas, and was raised in Blaine with his brothers Bert and Pat. He graduated from Blaine High School with much Borderite pride and attended college at Western Washington University, where he met his future wife of 29 years, Wendy (Lee). They moved to Bakersfield, California, where he began his teaching career, and eventually settled in Lynden, where he taught and coached for 26 years. He was blessed with three daughters, Alayna (Michael) Haynie, Zoe and Madeline Kramme, and his favorite grandson, Grayson.

Curt’s passion for sports led him to spend much of his time coaching, refereeing and watching his girls in various sporting events. Curt also loved to spend his free time, rain or shine, on Shuksan Golf Course.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 6, in the Lynden High School gymnasium.
