Daniel Eldon Cramb

August 7, 1950 — March 29, 2024


Daniel Eldon Cramb, 73, known affectionately as “Dan” to his loved ones, has sadly passed away at Riverview Hospital, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. Born in Crookston, MN, on August 7, 1950, Dan's journey came to an unexpected end on March 29, 2024.
Dan was a dedicated laborer who found joy in the simple things in life. His days were brightened by taking long walks with his beloved wife Patricia and engaging in playful activities like racing down the street on scooters. As the couple grew older together, they found great joy in playing FarmVille on the computer.  One of his children’s fondest memories was pulling them in a wagon on a lawnmower - a true testament to his devotion to his family.  When it came to family, Dan enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his children, grandchildren-which were his whole world.  He was truly a family man at heart.  

Dan was an outgoing man; he could talk to anyone.  He loved being outdoors and swimming in the lake.  Among other highlighted memories that his children will forever hold dear are the camping trips they took, the barbeques.  Dan was one of those people that you just plain enjoyed being around.  After his late wife, Patricia, sadly passed away in 2020, he woke up every morning and kissed her photo.  While his loss is felt tremendously by his family, they find a great deal of comfort in knowing that he has been reunited with his wife.  
Educated at Crookston High School, Dan's work ethic and kind heart endeared him to all who knew him. Described as caring and generous, he was always willing to give the shirt off his back to those in need. His presence brought warmth and comfort to those around him.
As family and friends gather to bid farewell, the funeral service in memory of Dan will take place on April 4, 2024, at Stenshoel-Houske Funeral & Cremation Service in Crookston, MN. The service will be a time to celebrate his life, share stories of his kindness, and find solace in the memories he leaves behind.
In this time of grief, let us remember Dan for the love he shared and the lives he touched. May his spirit live on through the memories we hold dear. Rest in peace, Dan Eldon Cramb - a loving husband, devoted father, and cherished friend.
