Douglas James Ramsay

March 15, 1922April 28, 2020

It is with deep sadness that we announce his passing at 98 years young on Tuesday April 28th, 2020.

He was the son of the late James & Mabel Ramsay, and the youngest brother of the late Bruce (Emily) Ramsay & Mabel (Ernie) Cope. Devoted husband of 57 years and loving caregiver of the late Betty Ramsay (2004). Dear father of sons, Duncan (Janet) and Peter. Proud grandfather of Kate & Paige (Kyle) and great-grandfather of baby Avery.

Doug was a decorated World War II Veteran and proud member of the Essex Scottish Regiment and Royal Canadian Legion Branch 157 Amherstburg. He was known for his charm and fun-loving spirit as his family and numerous friends can attest to!

Our heartfelt thanks to the staff of Seasons Amherstburg for their outstanding care over the last few years, and Heron Terrace, who made Doug’s transition as stress free as possible, even though it was only for a short time. The family would also like to thank Dr. M. Chevalier and the healthcare team of W.R. Field Hospital for their care & compassion during Doug’s final days. Last but not least, our deepest gratitude to his friends of Amherst Pointe, and Rhonda & Jim Northgate whom he so enjoyed spending time with (not to mention the limitless supply of cookies!)

In keeping with Doug’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family interment will take place at a later date.

Cheers to a life well lived.
