Benjamin Carl Kramich "Ben" "frogman"
Ontario: Ben passed away in the early morning hours of Monday, July 22, 2019 at the age of 44. He was born in Rochester, NY on June 28, 1975 to Marge "Cummings" and the late Ronald A. Kramich. He is survived by his mother Marge; sister, Jennifer (Daniel) Sturgis; nephew, Charles Benjamin Floss; niece, Olivia Ann Floss; aunts, Mary (Charles) Mullaney and Barbara Lambert; uncle, Guy (Linda) Bonney; extended family and friends including his lifelong buddies, Chad, Billy, Scott and Brian who, together, made Ben's life richer. A special thank you to his aids, Wanda, Charonda, Julie and Cathy for their exceptional care of Ben.
Ben lived with Duchenne muscular dystrophy "DMD"; a rare genetic disease which primarily affects males and causes the muscles of the body to become weak and damaged over time. Ben lived longer than most afflicted with the disease and continued to foster a great attitude toward life and to appreciate the beauty that surrounded him even though he was fighting an uphill battle, each, and every day. Ben was a part of a wonderful support group of people afflicted with various disabilities. Together they were helpful to one another in understanding and supporting each other.
Family and friends are invited to gather for a time of visitation on Thursday, July 25, 2019 from 4-7PM at the Murphy Funeral & Cremation Chapel, 1961 Ridge Road, Ontario, NY 14519.
