David Jack Ramey, 82, lost his battle with ALS, October 10th, 2020. He was a Marine who proudly served in Japan and the Philippines from 1956-1958. He worked for a hospital and attended Marshall University following his time overseas. After serving in the military, David started working with Medline as a sales representative where he later retired after 40 years. Most of all, David was a lover of the Lord and of his large family. David Ramey enjoyed volunteering at the train depot in Foley, and spending time with his train buddies in the caboose club. He was a sport enthusiast who enjoyed spending time at his kids’ and grandkids’ ballgames. He was also die-hard Auburn fan, who shouted “War Eagle!” any chance he could get. He and his wife Sherry loved vacationing in North Carolina. David had the ability to make every person in the room feel special even in the crowd of his large family. He always knew how to make you laugh, and he was the greatest cheerleader of all of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
