SIDNEY GORDON RAMSEY

“Along the banks of the Red River a frail little woman gave birth to a wildcat.”

Sidney Gordon Ramsey was born Dec. 9, 1932, just north of Muenster in Cooke County, Texas, to Elisha Gordon and Ruby Hobbs Ramsey, and on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, he went home to be with his Lord.

He graduated from Gainesville High School in 1950. He attended North Central Texas College before serving in the United States Army during the Korean War from 1953 to 1955, at Fort Carson, Colo. He also attended Arlington State College and graduated with a BBA in 1968, from the University of Texas at Arlington.

Mr. Ramsey worked for LTV from 1955 to 1972, where he was an administrator for the A-7 project. After leaving LTV, in 1972, he started Ramsey Realty and the RAMCO Development. In 1981, he entered the oil business as an independent oil producer, and he continued with this operation until his retirement in 2012.

In Fort Carson, Colo., during his service in the army, he met the love of his life, Jo Ann Moore. He married her on Oct. 16, 1954, and again on Dec. 11, 1981. They celebrated 58 years of wedded bliss on Oct. 16, 2012.

Mr. Ramsey was preceded in death by his parents; and his older sister, Imogene.

He is survived by his wife, Jo; daughters, Cyndy and husband Gary Sylvester of Fort Worth and Jenny and husband Ben Bowers of Arlington; six grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

He was a longtime member of First United Methodist Church in Arlington. Sid Ramsey was never at a loss for words and he never met a stranger. He was full of life and love for his family. He will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved him.

Services for Mr. Ramsey were held at First United Methodist Church in Arlington on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013. The family greeted friends on Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, at Moore Funeral Home. Dr. David Mosser officiated the service.
