Many touch our lives in many ways without directly being with us daily. Robert was such a man, a good father to his beautiful children and a friend friend to many around him. Taken too early as the saying goes but will be remembered by his loved ones and friends for his generous heart and wonderful smile.

Our condolences from our family and praying with grace on all he left behind.

I was doing his old job at the plant the other day and was very sad he couldn't have been there himself. I worked directly with him for a couple years but have known him for about 20 years at the plant. He was one of the most straightforward, pleasant to work with and dependable people I have ever known. He lived only 1 block away down Itasca street from us and grew Chile in his back yard that he would share with us when he had extra. I will miss him, God bless his immediate family and other friends, Vernon Ramsey

This man was a dear friend and co-worker of my husband, Vernon Ramsey, and I appreciate this so much.
He watched our property while we were away. He always gave us his famous chilie from his property.
We will always remember your friendship!
The Lord must have needed him back in heaven, to tend his heavenly garden.
May he rest easy, and prayers for all the family.
He last gave Vernon and small of amount of the last batch of the season's chile in a secret container at work, such a friendly act!
