The Falmouth Outlook, Falmouth, Pendleton Co., KY (Published: 18 Mar 2008)

Glendon Thomas Ramsey, 73, of Butler, passed away Friday, March 14, 2008 at the VA Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

He was born in Pendleton County and the son of the late Ercel Lee and Hildred Elizabeth Cummins Ramsey. He was a retired mail carrier after 22 years of service for Rt. #1 in Butler.

"Glen" served in the United State Navy as a telecommunicator from 1952 to 1956, and served as the Mayor of Butler from 1975 to 1983, treasurer and dispatcher of the Butler Fire Department from 1965 to 2003 and a Butler City Councilman from 1986 to 2006. Glen was also a deacon of Butler Christian Church, where he had been a member since 1961, a Kentucky Colonel, and a former member of the Good Sam Angels of Northern Kentucky.

He was preceded in death by his wife Patsy Louise Yelton Ramsey in 2003, sister; Reba Fern Ramsey, Shelby Lee Ramsey and his son-in-law, David Barnett.

"Glen was a fine person," said Butler Mayor Delbert Reid. "He served the city of Butler well as mayor and as a councilman. He loved his community."

His 11-year-old grandson said, "My pappaw was a really, really, good man and he was handsome," said Nathan Straub.

"You couldn't describe my father in a few words," said his youngest daughter, Alisha Straub. "He was a very generous, helpful, caring, loving man."

"He had to quit school to go to work and help his family. When he joined the Navy he got his GED there," she added.

Ramsey was never late a day in his life when he worked as a mail carrier for Butler, Alisha added. "There are so many funny stories his postal customers tell about him."

Ramsey spent much of his free time at the Butler Fire Department when he was younger and a fireman. "Dad was a very dedicated fireman. When the whistle blew he was there, often he would beat the whistle. He took very good care of his family and then took care of many of the neighbors and his mother. After one of his customers on his mail route husband died he found her a lot across the street from him. He watched over her, got her mail, went to the store and did other things for her," said Alisha.

"Dad just loved to take care of people," said another daughter, Debbie Barnett. "When his mother had to go to a nursing home in Butler he would visit her every morning and every night doing what he could for her. Then when my mom got so bad he had to put her in a nursing home, he was there every day and night, never fail. He was just a wonderful dad and he will be missed so much."

His brother Clayton Ramsey said, "Glen was a very likeable and very intelligent person. Many times when he was running his mail route someone would need help with something and he would always stop and do what he could. He was a great brother and loved politics."

"He was always nice. I couldn't have worked for a better person. He tried hard to be a really fair person," said Butler City Clerk Donna Kendall.

Glen is survived by three daughters; Deborah Faith Barnett of Falmouth, Glenna Hope Roseberry of Butler, and Alisha Lynn Straub of Butler, five grandchildren; Michael (Jessica) Barnett, A.J. (Chrissy) Roseberry, Hollie Roseberry, Cory Straub, and Nathan Straub; a great granddaughter, Haley Jane Barnett; future grandchild; Jonathan Daniel Barnett, due on August 1, 2008, sister; Marcella Louise Latimer of Falmouth, brother; Clayton Foster Ramsey of Falmouth, a host of nieces, nephews and many friends and relatives.
