It is with deep sadness that we mark the passing of Lawrence “Pat” Kramer, a tireless advocate for Paterson, a four-term Mayor, and a beloved Trustee of the Hamilton Partnership for Paterson. He will be greatly missed.

The Kramer family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Pat’s honor to the Hamilton Partnership. You may do so via the link below, or by sending a check to the Hamilton Partnership for Paterson, 72 McBride Ave., Paterson, NJ 07501.

Be A Part Of Something Great!

When you support the Hamilton Partnership for Paterson, you’re helping to ensure that current and future generations of park visitors can experience the history and culture of the Paterson Great Falls.

Our national park has it all: spectacular natural beauty, geology, history, innovation, technology, engineering, labor and immigration, economic independence and opportunity, architecture, poetry and literature, art, and even baseball.
