Marvin Douglas “Doug” Ramsey

9/24/1954 – 5/24/2022


    Doug Ramsey, age 67, of Chillicothe, OH, passed suddenly from this life to his much anticipated heavenly home. He was born in Chillicothe to the late Marvin Knisley and Anna Belle (McCloskey) Knisley Ramsey.  He was also preceded in death by his father, Francis Ramsey. 

    Doug leaves behind a son, Barton Ramsey, Chillicothe; grandsons, Andrew, Adam and Jaxon Ramsey, whom he dearly loved, as well as his former wife, Jan (Reisinger) Ramsey, Kingston OH. He is survived by sisters and brothers, Pamela Sue (Steve) Metcalf, Cookeville, TN, Pamela Jo (Tim) Clark, Gainesville, GA, Benjamin Ramsey, Chillicothe, Claudia (Joe Stephenson) Ramsey, Chillicothe, Tom (Pam) Ramsey, Chillicothe, Christine Knisley Boltz, Mobile, AL, and Michael (Patricia) Knisley; niece, Grace (Nate) Ramsey and very special friend and bible study partner, Tracy Cruz. 

    A 1972 graduate of Zane Trace High School, Doug worked as a union electrician for years and was the owner of Jet Electric, Chillicothe. He will be deeply missed by his family, church family and many friends. Doug loved serving his Savior by helping anyone in need and sharing his many gifts.

    Matthew 25:21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
