Richard "Babe" F. Kramer of Newton, NJ left us all suddenly while celebrating his 40th Anniversary with the love of his life, Sharon in Sorrento, Italy. He was 61 years young. Richard was born in Brooklyn, NY, raised in Manhattan, and resided in Newton for the past 26 years with his wife and two children. As a dedicated professional, for the past 16 years, he was the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Daffy's Inc. He was very involved in his community and his children's lives, coaching them in CYO basketball, Andover little league and Sparta softball as well as being everyone's biggest fan.
