Tribute & Message From The Family

Michael Ramsey of Coppell went to be with his Lord and Savior on August 31, 2013. He was born in Denton, TX to Jimmy and Lillian Ramsey on November 25, 1990. He was a proud Coppell Cowboy and a member of the 2009 graduating class of Coppell High School. Michael graduated from University of Texas at Arlington in May 2103 with a degree in Marketing and was just beginning his final semester at UTA to complete a second degree in Economics. His educational pursuits and numerous part-time jobs reflected his desire to always do more than was expected.

Loved and respected by all, Michael's dedication to his friends and family was only exceeded by his unwavering faith in Jesus Christ. Michael pursued Christ with a commitment and passion worn visibly on his heart for all to witness. Michael's kind spirit and contagious smile brought so much joy and encouragement to those who were fortunate enough to know him. Although his life was too short, he accomplished so much by simply loving life and those around him.

Michael is survived by his parents Jimmy and Lillian Ramsey of Coppell; a brother and sister-in-law David and Katy Ramsey and two nieces, Ava and Madeline Ramsey of Southlake; paternal grandmother Soghra Mahzoonian of Tehran, Iran; maternal grandmother Mary Avelar of Los Angeles, California; and a large, loving family of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Funeral services will be held on Monday, September 9 at 2:00pm at St. Ann Catholic Parish in Coppell, TX. Scholarships have been established with two organizations that were very important to Michael, The Coppell Family YMCA and Delta Sigma Pi - Professional Business Fraternity. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either of these organizations.

Dear Ramsey Family, I am praying God gives you peace at this time of your loss. Michael was a joy to be with.My son, Arman, and I met him during the Ron Paul movement. My son is half Iranian also and around the same age. Michael had a special place in my heart. He was so energetic, smart and sweet. He was loved by everyone in the group. He will be greatly missed and so fondly remembered. May God bless you all today, Regina Imburgia

I'm so saddened by the loss of such a wonderful person. Michael was full of life and was truly a special person. I had the great pleasure of working with him at Bell Helicopter. He truly left his mark on all those he touched. Many prayers go out to his family. I pray God's love sees you through this unimaginable time.

Dear Sister Lillian, I am so sincerely sorry to hear of your losing Michael. My heart goes out to you and the family. Losing someone especially so young and promising is not easy at all. For a Mom it is almost unbearable. My Our Lord give you peace and may Our Blessed Mother wrap you in her loving mantle and comfort you as long as you like.
Your Sister In CHRIST
