He worked for many years in heavy construction and was also a crane operator. He was currently working for NuAire Lab Equipment when he suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage due to high blood pressure.

He enjoyed road trips across the USA and exploring as many sites as he could fit into his adventures.

He was an expert pool player and loved to hustle the next challenger in his quiet non competitive demeanor, ONLY to clear the table on his first shot.

He was an exceptional artist! His passion was perspective drawings of homes and detailed drawings of animals and birds.

He designed and made the plant containers he needed for the many plants and flowers in his beautiful yard.

His kind & quiet manner will be greatly missed. He was a jokester that would take one by surprise as he made his quiet unexpected comments.

He is survived by his children Chad Ramsey, Mn. Travis (Tina Bratland) Centria, WI; Summer (Bart) Seaberg Grand Forks, ND. Grand children Rose, Kate, Blake, Amanda, Sabrina, Dakota. Great grand children Edison, Joseph and Aubrey.
