Leo Robert Brammer Jr., 85, Shreveport, LA

SHREVEPORT, LA - Leo Robert Brammer, Jr. entered eternal life on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2010. A memorial service for Bob will be held at 1:30 p.m. Friday, December 3, 2010 at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral in Shreveport. The Very Rev. Dr. Jacob W. Owensby will be the celebrant, assisted by the Rev. M.L. Agnew, Jr., and Canon Hope Benko.

Bob Brammer was born August 23, 1925 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Leo Robert Brammer and Ida Mae Crumpler Brammer. His early years were spent in Dallas, Texas and Albuquerque, New Mexico. He served his country proudly in the United States Marine Corps during World War II and the Korean Conflict. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1947 with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and obtained his Masters of Petroleum Engineering in 1950 from Tulsa University.

Mr. Brammer began his business career with the Shell Oil Company as a petroleum engineer and moved to Shreveport in 1954. In 1968, he founded Brammer Engineering, Inc. with one non-paid employee, his wife Dorothy, whom he loving called "Dot", and one client. He served as its President until 1995, at which time the company was sold. At that time, Brammer Engineering, Inc. had more than fifty employees and operated more than three hundred wells. He was most recently Chairman of the Board of Brammer-Keystone Energy, LLC, and participated in and contributed to numerous civic, charitable and religious organizations. He served as a Trustee for the Institute for Study of Earth and Man at Southern Methodist University, and as a Trustee, Chairman of the Finance Committee and Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee for the Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana. He also was the Public Member of the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board, Chairman of St. Mark's Cathedral School and a Trustee for Randolph-Macon Women's College, Southfield School and All Saints Episcopal School in Vicksburg, Mississippi. In 1998, Mr. Brammer was inducted into the North Louisiana Business Hall of Fame.

Mr. Brammer was very active in the life of St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral over many years, having served terms as Junior Warden and Senior Warden and several terms on the Vestry.

Among his favorite activities were golf, snow skiing, mountain hiking, wild flower photography, reading and touring Civil War battlefields. He was an ardent and loyal supporter of the University of Oklahoma, especially the Sooner football team. Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma holds happy memories about Bob Brammer and his entourage. In addition to these hobbies, he shared his love of travel with his many friends and family.

Mr. Brammer was predeceased by his beloved wife, Dorothy Gregory Brammer and daughter Lee Brammer May. He leaves many friends and family to celebrate his life. He is survived by his sister, Barbara Brammer Baker of Jacksonville Florida, sister-in-law, Egle Brammer of Pompano Beach, Florida and a devoted niece and nephew, Cheryl Moore and husband Brenton of Houston, Texas and Richard Thomas Parks and wife Susan of Dallas, Texas. Bob's many caring and supportive nieces and nephews will be sharing fond "Uncle Bob" stories for years to come.

Bob was a loyal, caring and generous friend, and throughout his years, especially the final ones, Bob has had tremendous support from his many devoted friends in the Shreveport community. Bob's family would like to thank these friends and those skilled and compassionate caregivers and doctors who worked with Bob during his final period of disability.
Serving as honorary pallbearers will be: George Baldwin, Jerry France, John Fryar, Ted Hardtner, Dr. Robert Lafargue, Sam Loeb, Herschel Richard and Dr. Lacy Williams.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials may be made to the Brammer Family Trust at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, 908 Rutherford, Shreveport, Louisiana 71104, or the charity of one's choice.
