Timothy L. Cranmer, age 64 of Osceola passed away July 13, 2023, at Elkhart General Hospital.  Tim was born February 4, 1959, in Elkhart Indiana and was a graduate of Elkhart Central High School.  He was employed in customer service with Martin’s Pet and Garden Center of Elkhart for over 30 years before taking an early retirement to spend time with his family.

He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Debbie (Hall) Cranmer of Osceola and their son Shawn Cranmer of South Bend.  Surviving as well are his siblings Shirley (Randy) Fox and Paul Watson, both of Elkhart and numerous nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents Paul Sr. and Helen (Grant) Watson and his siblings Helen McDaniel and Mark Cranmer.

Visitation will be 2 hours prior to the 1pm funeral on Tuesday, July 18, 2023, at Cruz Family Funeral Home in Osceola with interment to follow in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.

Outside of work, Tim enjoyed restoring classic cars and watching NASCAR racing.  He also loved spending time working in his yard and fishing througout the Michiana area.  Tim always took the time to help those in need. He will be remembered as a man of few words, but those who knew him best always felt the love and generosity he shared with them.
