Ramsey was a Kamloops boy, born and raised from old Tranquille to Westsyde. He built life long friends in his early years working at McDonalds. From there Ramsey made a career change to Don’s Auto Towing where he was employed for 15 years. It was there that he again made life long friends and met Sherry. In 2010, Ramsey took a big step forward, getting his Red Seal at West Can Bulk as a commercial transport mechanic.
Ramsey’s passion in life was working on cars with his brother Roy and “the boys.” They always had a project on the go and they could always be found in the garage. Ramsey looked after his “baby sister” and he adored the time spent with his nieces Megan and Brooke. Ramsey had a passion for cars, whether taking them apart or putting them together, and started with his first carPeaches and Cream. Later he built his garage to accommodate other builds, from “Pinks” in Seattle to Mission and Ashcroft Raceways “0-60 Sideways.”
On September 24, 2011 Ramsey and Sherry were married. She was his soul mate and the true love of his life. Sherry’s world was shattered upon his sudden passing.
Ramsey will forever remain her true love and soulmate.
