It is with heavy broken hearts, we say goodbye to Jerry Allen Ramick of Brooks, Kentucky. A loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend, who passed away peacefully at his home and journeyed into peace on March 16, 2021. Jerry was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to Grover and Nettie Joe (Gibbs) Ramick on October 11, 1944. He leaves behind his loving wife, Kathryn, his sons, Stewart (Sharon), and Jason, granddaughter Maddie, his sisters Judy Hudson (Wynne, AR) and Donna and Tommy Calloway (Little Rock, AR), and many nieces and nephews, and friends. If you knew Jerry, then you knew he was a Street Rod craftsman who rebuilt vintage cars and brought them back to their highest caliber. In his youth, he worked on Roundy Round cars, spent time at the drag races, and would cruise with his friends. He was a high school football team member who fell for the cute girl after high school, Kathryn. They married and moved to Louisville, Kentucky to start their life together and grow their family. Jerry worked at different car dealerships over the years in the repair departments, always keeping his hands busy fixing all manner of cars. He was a tower of man that most had to look up to to meet his gaze. He was an intelligent and disciplined man who knew the importance of family and did all he could to instill in his boys the necessary lessons of life to ready them for success in their future endeavors. He enjoyed telling stories of the good old days and was quick to make one laugh. But, his unbroken attention was for his most loved and cherished Kathryn. The two were rarely ever separate no matter what the task. May grace and peace fill the hole that his departure has left behind. A Memorial Service to celebrate Jerry's life will take place at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at Fairdale-McDaniel Funeral Home. The family will accept guests for visiting prior to the service at the funeral home from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Kathryn, Stewart and Jason, please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. Jerry was a good friend of many years, filled with great memories. Not only the times we had at local, and National, rod runs and car shows, but just getting together at someone’s garage to help out or just hang out. I remember the first time I was invited to go along with Jerry, Tom Reinhardt, Danny Able, Billy Lile and John Davidson to the U.S. Nationals drag races in Indianapolis one Labor Day weekend, about thirty-five years ago. The entire trip, from the early morning drive up, through all the sights, sounds, smells, sweat and sunburn...was one of the most enjoyable times I had ever had with such a great bunch of guys!

Jerry will be sorely missed, and you are all in my prayers!

With deepest sympathy to Kathryn & all the Remick family! This pandemic has sent us going out for short drives; and, we were reminiscing the Good ol' days as we passed your home! Larry & I will never forget the day we were at a rodrun and talking with Jerry when (in Jerry fashion) he stepped up to help a total stranger whose car just didn't sound right! As he raised the hood, the fan blade came off and struck Jerry in the face. Jerry was always a personable friend that sprang into action to help others! He suffered greatly for this act of kindness, but, never did we hear an unkind word. May the good Lord wrap His loving arms round about you,Kathryn; and may you focus on the great man Jerry has been and all the good times you shared together.
