Obituary

Born on November 9, 1984, in Oak Harbor, Washington, Matt’s number one priority in life was being a good father to his two sons. Matt passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on May 3, 2020.

Matt was born and raised in Oak Harbor and became a man with many skills: Master Craftsman, Tradesman, Lead Journeyman, and Fitter / Welder. He loved his family first and foremost; he adored and loved being a dad. He loved to snuggle his sons and watch movies, making special memories with his boys. Eli recalls a family tradition where Matt would gently rub his ear, which meant “I love you.” Matt always ensured the dirt bikes and 4-wheelers were running for the kids and family to ride on the trails at home. Matt also loved customizing motorcycles, camping, and hiking. He enjoyed going on motorcycle rides with his family and friends, and he loved to cook and entertain; often barbecuing or using his custom smoker (that he was very proud of!). He loved to go to the beaches, and to the mountains; he loved being outdoors.

He was a big-hearted man and was always there for anyone. He is known for having given love and guidance to so many, who remember him fondly. He loved life and was very spiritual on many levels, but especially to his Native American heritage and the Christian belief that all life came from our Creator.

Matt is survived by the loves of his life, Nikki Scott, and two sons, Eli Jerome Cramer (age 11) and Sybashton Jacob Cramer (age 5). He is also survived by his mother, Wendy Cramer; his brother, Jason Cramer; his sister-in-law, Karha Cramer; his nieces, Taryn and Ellyn Cramer; his nephew, Wesly Cramer; his sister, Catherine Turner; his brother, Joseph 'Jamie' Turner; and his California family: his father, Richard Cramer; his step-mother, Shelli; his brother, Thomas; and sister, Elaine; along with many cousins, and brothers- and sisters-of-choice.

SERVICES

On Friday, May 8th, Matt's immediate family members will gather at Wallin Funeral Home from 4-5p for a private family service (by invite only; social distancing requirements will be met). Other family and special friends are encouraged to participate by offering messages of condolence on an easel and photo of Matt located in the Wallin portico for ‘drive by’ visitation purposes from 12p to 5p. Please 'drive through' the portico and leave your messages and memories for the family on the canvas provided there (keeping social distancing in mind). Flowers and cards may also be left at the easels, for delivery to the family at their private service (or they may be sent directly to the Cramer family home). At 5pm, a Memorial Ride will depart from Wallin – everyone is invited to participate in this ride, following the family in memory of Matt. Memories and condolences may also be left here on Matt’s Memory Wall.

Later, as circumstances permit, a Cramer-Style Celebration of Life will be held for all to share the way Matt would have wanted.

My heart was sadden over the loss of Matt and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose someone so loved, a part of your life, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he feels our pain. At jw.org we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have him in your life once again. May all the memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.🌻

Today, I was delivering surprises to strangers I have never met. Local people on a new Facebook group. As I passed by the accident scene, there was a silver vehicle parked on the side of the road. A lady was upset and it hit me. I don't know the lady nor do I know Matt. I could tell how much this woman was missing Matt and loved him. I can't explain it but felt like I needed to do something. The lady pulled out behind me and when I got to the stoplight just passed the funeral home I knew I needed to do something. I only had some fizz sticks that I was delivering and put the car in park. I ran back and gave her some telling her I am sorry and just want to try to make her day better. Everyone started honking as the light turned green and I ran back to the vehicle. If anyone knows this lady please tell her to mix 8oz of water with each fizz stick. Matt was a loved man and even though I never met him it showed today! Maybe his spirit guided me. Hang in there lady and I hope you find peace!

As we mourn the loss of an amazing brother, son, uncle, family member, friend, let us take away from this a great lesson he demonstrated.

Matt was always taking care of everyone. Would make sure no one went hungry. Make sure you had a place to live. He has literally gave me the shirt off his back before. Always did whatever he could to take care of his family and friends.

But what Matt also did, he always took time to chase his dreams in life. The last time I talked to him he was so enthusiastic about finally accomplishing his goals he has always wanted to. Customizing motorcycles. Finally starting his MC he always dreamed of. Starting his mini farm he has always wanted so he could be more self sufficient.
This is a lesson we all need to remember him for.
Take care of your family, but also take action and chase your dreams like you could die tomorrow. Cause as we know, tomorrow may never come. He would want to see all of us accomplish our goals. Chase our dreams.

Rest in peace my brother. Enjoy the ride into the sunset my friend.
