Michael W. Ramsey Obituary

        Memorial services for Michael W. Ramsey, 70, of Timpson, Texas, will be held Saturday, October 14, 2023, at 10:30 a.m. at Shafer Funeral Home in Lufkin with Bro. Levi Cohorst officiating.

        Mr. Ramsey was born on May 2, 1953, in Houston, Texas, to the late Edward B. Ramsey and Bernice (Hughes) Ramsey, and died Thursday, October 5, 2023, at his residence in Timpson.

        Above all, Mr. Ramsey or “Papa,” dearly loved his family and friends. He was well-known for his cooking abilities, and he always loved having get-togethers at the farm. When not in the kitchen, Mr. Ramsey was known for having a project or two in the works. This included anything from rebuilding a Willys Jeep to checking in on his cattle.

        Mr. Ramsey did not let a cancer diagnosis slow him down. He fought hard to spend his final days creating memories with those he loved. Mr. Ramsey enjoyed anything outdoors, and one of his last trips was a deep-sea fishing trip with family and friends.

        Mr. Ramsey truly had a heart of gold, and will be missed by many.

        He is survived by his daughter, Michelle King of Timpson; son and daughter-in-law, Wayne and Brittany Ramsey of Lufkin; grandchildren, Greyson and Brayden King of Timpson and Harrison, Amelia, and Truett Ramsey of Lufkin; brother and sister-in-law, Robert and Nancy Ramsey of Houston; beloved puppy dog, Ziva; and numerous extended family and friends.

        Mr. Ramsey was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Cindy P. Ramsey; and brother, Steve Ramsey.

        Honorary pallbearers will be Randy Ballard, Bill Britt, Adolfo Fonseca, Phillip Foshee, Glenn Gill, Michael King, Shawn Reesor and Perry Waymire.

        Special memorials may be made to MD Anderson Cancer Center by mail at PO Box 4486, Houston, TX 77210-4486, or to the Lufkin Salvation Army at 305 Shands Dr., Lufkin, TX, 75901.
