Obituary for Lacy Ramsey

Lacy  Ramsey
Lacy Bradford Ramsey 1924 – 2018

Lacy Bradford Ramsey was born on October 14th, 1924 in Staunton, Virginia.
He was the son of John S. Ramsey and Bertha V. Tinsley and one of nine siblings.
Lacy grew up during the depression and at 15 years old left home to be a Western Union boy.
At 18 years old he was drafted into the US Amy and trained at Camp Hale Colorado
with the 10th Mountain division.
Lacy was a lineman along the Gothic Line in Northern Italy running the communication lines between the main Army and outpost during WWII. Through heavy fire and blasting mortars he lost many of his comrades. Once the Japanese surrendered, Lacy was honorably discharged from the Army on November 23rd, 1945. Lacy would always say that “he got his education in the Army”.
While in the Army he was awarded The European African Middle Eastern Service Medal,
Good Conduct Medal, WWII Victory Medal, Bronze Star Medal G0 136 Hq 10thMt Div 45,
and the American Service Medal.
After the Army, Lacy served as a US postman in Maryland and the District of Colombia for 7 years.
He then decided that Real-estate would be his forever career and he sold corporate real-estate
until he retired in 1995.
With golfing being another one of Lacy’s passions, he moved to Melbourne, Florida with his wife Marie.

Lacy is survived by his wife of almost 17 years Marie, his son Danny Lee (Denise), his step daughter Hillary Robords (Dennis), his granddaughter Mattison Robords, many cherished nieces and nephews
and his service dog Lacey.

St. Patrick’s Day was one of Lacy’s favorite holidays and is also his only son’s birthday.
Lacy’s wife Marie, will receive guests at their home in Melbourne Florida on Saturday March 17th, 2018
for a celebration of Lacy’s life from 1pm to 4pm. Guests are encouraged to bring pictures and stories.

A military funeral at Arlington National Cemetery will take place at a later date.
