Kramer was also a founding member of the Gold Coast Promotional Products Association (GCPPA), actively participating in the association’s board and donating time and resources.
An avid traveler and owner of thoroughbred racehorses, Kramer also donated his time to a number of charitable organizations. He served on the boards of the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, Jewish Family Services and Miami Country Day School. Kramer was also a Society Member of Mount Sinai Hospital, and he and his wife have been supporters of the American Lung Association, Jewish Guild for the Blind, JAFCO and the New Israel Fund, and they are Grand Founders at the University of Miami.
Kramer is survived by his wife of 30 years, Kandy, and son, Spencer; his mother, Jean Kramer, and sister Donna Gross. Services were held on March 30 at Riverside Gordon Chapel in Aventura. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.
