In Memory of Ward Cramer | Chicago Skateboarding

June 5th, 2013|

It's hard to believe that one year ago on June 6th, 2012 Ward Cramer past away. Ward was a lifetime best friend to myself and Character Skateboards family. Ward could pretty much skate whatever terrain he wanted. Anything from downhill to bowls, full-pipes, half-pipes, ditches, pools, street, stairs and even freestyle. You name it he could skate it. Skateboarding & music were a huge part of his life, he was dedicated.
