James Gregory Ramey, 60, of Crum, W.Va., claimed his crown in Heaven on January 15, 2021. He was born on February 15, 1960 at Bridgeton, New Jersey, a son of J.C. and Ruth Ramey. Greg Ramey was one in a million. His zeal for life was seen by his bright spirit and smiling face.
Greg has been head over heels in love with his wife, Vicki, since age seventeen. He made her feel like they were newlyweds every day of their marriage. His strong love for Vicki was evident to all who knew them. He was an extraordinary husband, father, and grandpa who loved spending time with his family especially with Jonah and Aiden.
Greg was the Pastor at Crum Missionary Baptist Church and loved the Lord with his whole heart. His passion was sharing the love of God with others. He served many years as director of Twelvepole Association Church Camp and often said church camp is the closet thing to Heaven on Earth.
Greg enjoyed being a math teacher at Tolsia High School. He had the pleasure of coaching football and basketball over fifteen years ranging from little league to high school. He took every opportunity to tell his players about Jesus and pushed them to be better men. Most of his work career, twenty-nine years, he worked as a purchasing agent for Sartin Trucking who treated him like family.
He is preceded in death by his father, J.C. Ramey. He leaves behind his loving wife of 38 years, Victory Ramey; one son, Andrew and one daughter in love Selena Ramey of Hurricane, W. Va.; one daughter Holly and one son in love Josh Bowling of Crum, W. Va.; two very special grandsons, Jonah Bowling and Aiden Ramey; his mother Ruth Ramey, of Crum, W. Va.; one brother Steve (Sherry) Ramey of Crum, W. Va.
