Kenneth L. Cram was born October 9, 1968, in Payson, Utah, to Koyle Thomas and Carolyn Lamb Cram. He attended Brookside Elementary in Springville, Utah and graduated from Springville High School in 1987. He attended Dixie State College for a couple years where he received his pilot’s license. He was studying to be a commercial pilot. He then served a mission in Scotland for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He loved the Scottish people. He married April Dunn Cram in 1995 in the Manti, UT temple. They have three children. Ken had many talents and hobbies. Ken enjoyed being in the mountains hunting. He loved to ride dirt bikes, horses, and snowmobiles, but his lifetime love was flying planes. He had dreams of flying a Boeing 747 someday. Ken studied to be an EMT and served with the Thayne Volunteer Ambulance Service. Ken was an entrepreneur at heart! He built and operated the Star Valley Quick Stop in Thayne, WY and then started Willow Creek Transport, a crude oil trucking company in the oil fields. He spent a lot of time in construction and built his own home in Bedford, WY. He returned to flying two years ago and received his commercial pilot’s license. He went to work for Hawkeye Helicopter this past year, trying to build his time and experience, so he could work into flying the bigger planes. He was recently hired by SkyWest Airlines and was so looking forward to learning to fly the ERJ for them. Ken is survived by his mother, Carolyn Cram; siblings, Lynette (Bill) Sharpe, Stanley (Kim) Cram, Susan Prestwich; wife, April Cram; children, Dayton Bronson, Mitchell Cram, Hailey Cram, Taylor Cram; grandson, Bridger Bronson.
