Ramey, Grady W.

The very special and beloved Spirit of Grady Ramey is now soaring throughout the halls of Heaven, enthusiastically enjoying his Christ-given grace, and rejoicing with his many family members, Texas buddies and military comrades. surely is happy and energetic beyond our wildest recollections. Some of his earthly mantles: Born on March 3rd, 1924 in Whiterock, Texas (always a loyal Texan!) as the seventh child of 11, with the French family roots of Reamy and the Scottish roots of the original Highlands Clan of McJunkins. Preceded in death by eight siblings. Survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Dorothy Mae, two sons, MSgt Retired Tommy Ramey and wife Amy of San Antonio, Dr. Gerald Ramey and wife Marsha of Lewiston, Idaho, and one daughter, Judy Savage of San Antonio. Also, by a proud legacy of eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren - all of whom he mentored, revered, and loved dearly. Some of Grady's activities, awards, and earthly accomplishments included being part of the first group in U.S. Air Force awarded the rank of Chief M/Sgt and serving in the navy on the most decorated ship in WWII, the USS Enterprise. Grady was very active in the Texas Special Olympics and is affectionately known as the Grandfather. As Grady's family and friends, we are so fortunate and blessed to have him as our protective, dynamic "Guardian Angel"!!
