Paul Ray Kremer, Brainerd, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Nov. 8, 2021 from injuries of a hit and run in Brooklyn Park. He was born Feb. 17, 1961 in Fairfield, CA. He was adopted as an infant by Dave and Wanda Kremer. They moved to Brainerd in the summer of 1971. He graduated from Brainerd High School in 1979 then later did a short time in the US Marine corps. Paul was an avid fisherman who never turned down an opportunity to wet a line winter or summer. His other passion was rock and roll music, who could always be found strumming out a tune on his guitar. Paul was preceded in death by his daughter Larissa Amber Kremer (infant) and his mother Wanda Kremer, Sierra Vista, AZ. He is survived by his father Dave Kremer and brother Peter Kremer (Nonluk), Sierra Vista, AZ; his former wife and mother of his children, Kathryn Alt, Motley, and his loving sons Lee (Marissa), Brainerd, Cole, Brainerd, Peter (Jenny), Park Rapids, Kyle (Karissa) Brainerd, and Seth (Crystal), Brainerd and grandchildren, Larissa, Kylee, Linkin, Attica, Sylvia, Landon, Grace, Able, Leela and Bella, some of which lovingly called him Papa Pirate.
