   Dub was born July 16, 1939, at his home in Sabanna, Texas to John W. Ramsey and Frances Lorene “Hollis” Ramsey.   He had one sister Mary Frances Ramsey “Ludy”.

As well as a great grandfather to 23 great-grandchildren, and had just recently become a great-great-grandfather. He will be lovingly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

  Dub was a man of many traits and was a successful entrepreneur. He enjoyed working; he was never the one to sit around. From selling pens to other classmates in elementary school to selling magazines. He was a man of his own and was not one to take orders. Thus, leading to the creation of his businesses. That ranged from “National Security,”, “Big Country Exterminating,” and in 1972 he established his footprint in the restaurant and vending industry. 

   He loved to be surrounded by family and will be forever missed.
