  Mr. McINNIS. Mr. Speaker, it is with a heavy heart that I stand 
before this body of Congress to pay tribute to Robert Kraemelmeyer, who 
recently passed away after many years of public service. Robert devoted 
his life to serving his community and this devotion will not be 
  Robert began his life of public service when he left college to join 
the Air Force and serve in World War II, stationed with the 423rd 
squadron--306 Bomb Group in England. After the war, Robert returned to 
the United States and moved to Golden, Colorado. While in Golden, 
Robert began a career as plumber, and dedicated much of his time to his 
community. He spent a lot of time as the Scout Master of Troop 48. 
Robert knew that he could make a difference in the lives of America's 
youth, so he purchased some property in the Williams Fork area, which 
he turned into a summer ranch for boys. He ran the ranch until his move 
to Montrose, Colorado in 1972. While in Montrose, Robert got involved 
in politics, and continued to serve his community as a city councilman 
and town mayor. While serving as the Mayor of Montrose, Robert worked 
hard to serve his community to the best of his ability.
  Mr. Speaker, I am honored to stand before this Congress and pay 
tribute to the life and accomplishments of Robert Kreamelmeyer. Robert 
was an outstanding role model. I am saddened by the loss of such a good 
man, but am happy knowing he had such a positive impact on so many 
young people in his community. My thoughts and prayers go out to 
Robert's family and friends.
