    Bradley Jay Cramer, 60, passed away peacefully after a brief illness on July 11th with his family by his side.  He was born in Cleveland, Ohio – doomed into a life of Cleveland sports loyalty – but his love for the city never wavered.

    Brad met his wife Lisa in the early 1980s at American University, leaving his mark on campus with his creativity and huge personality. Together, Brad and Lisa started a family and eventually settled down in Scottsdale, Arizona before moving to Alpharetta, Georgia in 2006.

    As cliché as it sounds, Brad never met a stranger. Whether it was at the dentist or in the drive-thru, he made friends everywhere he went – and always had a joke or two ready to go. He was a true foodie, and in recent years even started a podcast – or as he affectionately called them, ‘Foodcasts’ – a passion project that led to him interviewing several big food celebrities, such as Phil Rosenthal and Jacques Pepin. He loved his Cleveland sports, never missing a game while wearing his lucky shirt or hat.

    But above all, Brad was the most giving, selfless father and husband. He was ‘Mr. Mom,’ driving his kids to school, sports, and activities every single day. He was PTO president, baseball coach, and superhero all wrapped in one, always giving 100% of his love, time, and energy to his kids.  

    Brad was predeceased by his mother Lois Paston Cramer and his beloved Cockatiel Frosty,  Brad is survived by his wife Lisa, son Jake Cramer, daughter Madison Cramer, as well as his brother Scott Cramer and father Marshall Cramer.

    There will be a graveside service on Sunday July 16th, 11:30 am at Arlington Memorial Park, 201 Mount Vernon Hwy, Sandy Springs, GA 30328.  Casual dress is recommended.

    In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to World Central Kitchen (, a cause Brad felt very passionately about.

    While his foodcast description might have referenced an insatiable appetite, it was Brad's ability to make people feel comfortable during their conversations that was unlike any other. From his depth of knowledge to his uncanny wit, Brad was never at a loss for words. Whether it was a subtle song reference or a nod to a favorite television show, his writing always stood out in a sea of sameness. More importantly, he chose to share the spotlight with others. He was the first person to celebrate an accomplishment or lend a hand where needed. A proud parent, he was never missed an opportunity to praise Madison's and Jake's achievements. While we might have differed over our prefer beverage choices or appreciation of mushrooms, those silly and insight conversations will live on in those foodcast episodes. It was a privilege to be part of that endeavor and to be able to spend time with him. While the foodcast jingle might have said raise a glass to good libations, I raise a glass to Brad Cramer. He will be greatly missed.

    So many of my happy memories raising our kids during the elementary school days in McDowell Mountain Ranch include Brad. I loved how he always had a humorous take on, well, everything! Sending hugs to the family.

  • Lisa Troutman

    Sending my deepest condolences to Lisa, Jake and Madison. I have fond memories of your family’s time in Scottsdale. Brad was a devoted dad and we got to know him through the boys’ friendship, baseball and volunteering in the classroom. He was such a witty guy and fun to be around. We reconnected over Facebook and as a fellow foodie, I lived vicariously through his interviews with some of my faves such as Phil Rosenthal. Rest in peace, Brad. Wishing your family comfort and peace.

    My memories of Brad as a child will remain with me forever. I will remember what a funny, happy and loving child he was. My heart hurts for my brother and his family. Rest in peace Bradley!

  • Bret Roth

    I’m so saddened for all close to Brad. My memories of him as a child were a unique sense of humor and a love for sports! Rest in peace cousin! My thoughts and prayers go out to all family members and friends!

  • Jeffrey and Sherry Newman

    We were deeply saddened when we learned of Bradley's passing. A true sports fanatic and loyal to all Cleveland teams. Smart, witty and a great dad that made sure his children came first. Our thoughts and prayers are with Lisa, Jake and Madison.

    When you contacted me about Brad’s passing I was shocked and deeply saddened. A flood of memories came rushing back into my head. From meeting him Brad and Madison at preschool to serving on PTO at DCES. He was smart and funny and great to spend time with. Brad was the first one to the hospital when Alex was born with a little Baby Gap sweatshirt. It hurt me to think that we could have been in touch regularly and yet neither of us did so. I will never forget the time we spent together and what a close friend he was when he lived in AZ. I can’t imagine how hard his death will affect Lisa and the kids. Just know there are people sending you love and support!
