Jerome "Jerry" Peter Kraemer, 78, of Laporte MN, Born August 1st, 1945, in St. Cloud, MN, passed away peacefully in his sleep August 5th, 2023. A celebration of life will be held at Jack and Jims 11025 Duelm RD NE, Foley, MN  56329 on August 9th from 3 to 6 pm.

Jerry was known for his hard work ethic and always willing to lend a helping hand. He was never the guy to sit around and be bored. He loved being with his family and friends and he was very sociable. Any event that gave him an excuse to make his famous French fries, he'd be there. He had a passion for hunting, fishing, and playing cards. He lived a very simple life, and it didn't take very much to make him happy. His family jokes he's owned the same fishing poles his whole life and he claimed his 3-piece suit he purchased 40 years ago was still a damn good suit. His storytelling and contagious laugh will be truly missed by all who were blessed to know Jerry.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents Eldred Kraemer SR, Carolyn (Netz) Kraemer, his siblings, Maxine (Eldrige) Jones, Winifred (Delroy) Perske, Shirley (Everett) Winkleman, Eldred Kraemer, Jr., Andrew (Connie) Kraemer, Richard (Arlene) Kraemer and his two children Jerome Kraemer, Jr., and Tiffany Kraemer

And survived by his children, Tammy Streed, Tanya Langner, Christina Kraemer, Brandon Kraemer, Candice (Aaron) Gates, and Penny (Scott) Person.; grandchildren, Tyler Kraemer, Kendra Hughes, Mason and Alyssa Langner.
