Daryl Lee Ramsey

d. September 3, 2019

Daryl Lee Ramsey of Cape Girardeau, formerly of Parma, passed away in Cape Girardeau on September 3, 2019, at the age of 61 years.

He was born on December 28, 1957 to the late Gay (Murphy) and the late Randall Ramsey, of Parma, Missouri. He had two siblings, his twin sister Carol Ellen Ramsey (Creason) who passed away in 2009, and Richard Ramsey (Jane Ramsey) of Indian Wells, CA. He is survived by his nephew, Matthew Creason of Poplar Bluff, Missouri, aunts and uncles Betty (Ramsey) Spence of St. Louis, Missouri, Lucille (Ramsey) Bloess of Warsaw, Missouri; Wanda (Murphy) Hughes of Bernie, Missouri; Don Murphy of Dexter, Missouri; Judy (Murphy) Thrower of Cape Girardeau, Missouri; Joyce (Murphy) Dunn of St. Charles, Missouri; Bob Murphy of Jefferson City, Missouri; and numerous Ramsey, Spence, Bloess and Murphy cousins.

Daryl attended the University of Missouri in Columbia and was a member of Kappa Alpha fraternity. He was a master gardener, an avid Cardinal baseball fan and lover of nature.

At his best, Daryl was a devoted, compassionate friend, son, brother and uncle with a kind word for everyone.

The family plans a private burial but asks that friends join them in a moment of silence on Saturday, September 7 at 11 am CST. In lieu of flowers or donations, the family asks that a random act of kindness be performed in Daryl’s memory. A tree will be planted in his name at the Arbors of Auburn Creek where Daryl lived for the past year.

Watkins & Sons Funeral Service of Dexter in charge of arrangements.
