Delmar Ray Ramey

   It is with great sadness and love that I write this
obituary for my loving father-in-law, Delmar Ray
Ramey, age 62, of Mousie, Kentucky, husband of Virginia
Wallen Ramey. He passed away on Monday,
April 11, 2005, at the Appalachian Regional Hospital in Hazard, Kentucky.
He was born on April 18, 1942, in Knott County, Kentucky, the
son of the late Rex and Nora Hicks Ramey. He was a disabled coal
miner and a member of the Rock Fork Old Regular Baptist Church at
Garrett. Delmar was a faithful member and, if he was able to do
anything at all, he was at church. He loved the church dearly.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by three sons, Ricky (Teresa
Ann) Ramey of Martin, Kentucky, Jimmy Ray (Anna Mae) Ramey
and Robbie Brent Ramey, both of Mousie, Kentucky; three grandchildren,
Travis Brent Ramey, Cody Blake Ramey, and Casey Brandon
Ramey; three brothers, Denver, Charles and Michael Ramey;
and four sisters, Edith Patton, Verda Wallen, Vicky Lynn Ratliff and
Pamela Sue Short.
     In his lifetime Delmar had many good and dear friends. He loved
traveling with his wife, Virginia. He also loved taking his grandchildren
fishing and roasting marsh- mallows over an open fire out back
of his home. Delmar was loved and is missed.
