David Esman Tramer, age 46, died Sunday morning June 11, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Toledo on November 16, 1970, attended Maumee Valley Country Day School and graduated from Ohio University with a bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications. For the last half of his life David lived in Carol Stream, Illinois, and worked as an electronic printing specialist for Aramark Corporation and R.R. Donnelly until his illness. David was also an accomplished bass guitarist, performing soft rock music in a group named “3 Too Far” that performed in the Chicago area; some of their music included David’s own compositions. He also had written a movie script that he planned to produce as an indie film. David’s many friends re
member him as a kind, gentle person with a wry sense of humor who projected a sense of serenity and calm inner strength. He was always positive and optimistic. At the Northwestern University Hospital and later at the University of Michigan Cancer Center, he charmed his nurses and physicians with his humor, his indefatigable optimism, and his courage. He never complained, and was a proactive participant in his own care. David is survived by his mother, Flora Esman of Toledo; his father, Elliot Tramer; and stepmother, Christine Manzey of Whitehouse; stepsisters, Heather Iler and Holly Rhodes; and loving cousins, aunts and uncles, all of whom traveled frequently to visit him in the hospital. The family also wishes to thank nurses Barb and Donna of the University of Michigan Critical Care unit for their kindness, support, and understanding. Visitation will be held from 3-6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14, at the Wick/Wisniewski Funeral Home, 2426 North Reynolds Road, with a service to follow at 6 p.m. Donations in David’s memory made be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
