Ramsey was very passionate about any project he was involved in.  He loved growing tomatoes and once grew 1,500 tomato plants.

His love for basketball led him to convert his driveway into a basketball court, by painting it, to teach his grandchildren how to do a proper layup.  He loved watching tennis and boxing while eating Baby Ruth’s.

Most importantly, he was a kind and loving father and proud Pop’s, who will be greatly missed not only by family, but by all who knew him. He had a unique and interesting way of telling stories that everyone enjoyed hearing.
