Robert E. Ramsey, 90, of Glen Allen, Missouri, died Jan. 18, 2021, at the home of his daughter and son in law in Calverton Park, Mo. Born on May 5, 1930, in Laflin, Mo., he was the son of Robert Lee and Mildred Bessie Shrum Ramsey.
Following graduation from Jackson High School, he began a life-time career as a truck driver. He worked as a local driver in the St. Louis area for American Trucking and Jones Truck Line. He and Helen Louise Grant-Borak met on a radio connection hotline. They were married on October 24, 1987 and spent the next 33 years as an inseparable couple who loved each other dearly and served their Lord and Savior faithfully.
Bob enjoyed fishing and hunting turkey and deer. He loved spending time with his family and friends. He was a member of New Salem Baptist Church and a devout Christian who spoke about his faith at every opportunity and was the most faithful prayer warrior for everyone. The prayer barn will never be the same. He played guitar and his beloved harmonica and was very good at it.
He is survived by his wife, Helen; two sons: William (Tammy) Borak of Elsberry, Mo., and Robert Buckley Ramsey of St. Louis; two daughters: Kathy (Robert) Wisdom of Union, Mo., and Marla (Kevin) Bond of Ferguson; nine grandchildren: Kevin Bond Jr., Justin Bond, Jennifer Bond, Kelly Hinde, Jeanine Borak, Josh Borak, Rob Wisdom, Amy Wells, and Erin Avery; and twelve great-grandchildren: Natalia, Addison and Kiernan Bond, Jackson and Reece Ramsey, Deven, Regan, Ireland, Keaten, and Teague Boyd, Lacey and Cole Avery. He was preceded in death by four sons: Russell Ramsey, Thomas, James and Richard Borak and a sister, Alta Pearl Stroder Reed.
