Rammer, Jeffrey Scott (2) – Obituary

Baker City, Oregon

Jeffrey Scott Rammer, 34, of Baker City, died Nov. 21, 2000, at St. Alphonsus Hospital in Boise.

His co-workers showed their respect for Mr. Rammer by accompanying his parents from the funeral home to the airport after a brief gathering and viewing at Relyea Funeral Home in Boise today. He will be buried Saturday in a family plot in Wisconsin. There was a service at St. Alphonsus Hospital in Boise at the request of the staff who had come to know and love him during his stay there since Aug. 28. There will be a Baker City memorial service for him next week.

Mr. Rammer was born at Sheboygan, Wis. He played tennis at South High School in his hometown and graduated with the Class of 1984. After graduation, he followed his sister, Vicki, who died earlier, to Portland. It was there that he attended school to become a corrections officer.

In 1988, he was hired by the Oregon Department of Corrections. He worked for the Oregon State Penitentiary in Salem where he later moved. In 1996, he and his family moved to Baker City where he transferred with the state to work at the Powder River Correctional Facility as a transport officer.

His life was enriched by his love for the outdoors. Many days were spent fly fishing and enjoying the rivers and streams. A national “Fly Fishing Magazine” published an article about tying flies written by Mr. Rammer. The article is included in the newest edition, released this week.

Friends could always count on a rousing commentary about the virtues of Wisconsin sausage, which he always shared from his packages from home, and his unfaltering support and enthusiasm for the Packers.

A warm smile was always visible from this tender-hearted soul, his family members said. People closest to Mr. Rammer say he was a very private person, never wanting to burden those around him or to ask for help even when he needed it. But he would always give of himself to those he cared for.

Most important to him were his small sons. You could always expect to see them accompanying their father around town and to the gym where he enjoyed working out. His last written thoughts of love were for his sons.

Survivors include his parents and guardians, Fritz and Nancy Rammer and maternal grandmother, Mollie Zeinemann, and brothers, Mark, Scott and Tim, their wives and families, all from Wisconsin; and his sons, Jacob and Jared Rammer of Baker City.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the Baker County Public Library to enhance the fishing and wildlife sections for all ages. Pam Short of Baker City has been appointed by the family to assist in developing the memorial.
