FRAMINGHAM – Brian K. Ramsey, 50, a lifelong resident of Framingham, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 18, 2018, with his beloved wife, Theresa “Terri” L. (MacDougall) Ramsey by his side.
Born in Framingham on August 8, 1967, he was the son of the late Kenneth and Virginia A. (Palmieri) Ramsey.
He graduated from Keefe Tech Trade school and worked as a master mechanic for many years and recently as a building maintenance engineer.
Brian first met the love of his life, his wife, Terri Ramsey at the age of 17, when they became best friends, and have been together in love for the past eight years.
Brian was a larger than life character with a contagious laugh that filled the room and a giant heart to match his large stature, with a special place in it for his two cats “Sammy” and “Dopie”.
He was a caring and generous person who would truly give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He also had a great sense of humor and loved to play a good practical joke on his friends.
Brian was a man’s man who loved working on his Harley Davidson and going for long rides with Terri.
He was a talented handyman and often referred to himself as a “Jack of all trades and a Master of none.”
He was a diehard Buffalo Bills fan and also enjoyed hiking the trails and going for walks with Terri.
In addition to the love of his life Terri, Brian was also survived by his step-daughter, Morgan C. MacDougall of Framingham; his siblings, Debbie (Ramsey) Vandenberg of Marlborough and Kevin Ramsey of Colorado; his nieces, Shauna Vandenberg of Marlborough, Kendra Ramsey of Framingham and Kayla Ramsey of Colorado; his nephew, Daniel Ramsey of Colorado; his great-nieces and great-nephews, Aidan Chillari, Mia Chillari, Christian Ramsey, Gianna Ramsey and Grayson Ramsey; and his mother-in-law, Claire MacDougall.
