Art H. Kramer, 41, writer, cab company owner

Art H. Kramer, who owned a Washington-area taxicab company before embarking on a career in journalism, died Tuesday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home in Atlanta. He was 41.

A native of Silver Spring, Mr. Kramer owned a 12-car cab company that operated in the District of Columbia and Montgomery County from the mid-1980s until the early 1990s. While running the business, he attended the University of Maryland, College Park and graduated in 1995.

For his cab business, Mr. Kramer wrote and produced an occasional newspaper called Taxi Tribune, which contained information for cab drivers.

From his newspaper, he developed an interest in journalism and had internships at The Sun, Boston Globe, Washington Times and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where last year he began a daily column that explored the content of the Internet.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at Danzansky Goldberg Memorial Chapel, 1170 Rockville Pike in Rockville.

He is survived by his parents, Gerson and Beryl Kramer, both of Silver Spring, and two sisters, Phyllis Kramer of Elkridge and Rachel Harris of Rockville.
