David was born the son of the late, Johnny Ramey and the late Emma Jean Carpenter Ramey on July 9, 1970. In his professional life he worked at Reeves Building Supply in the outside sales department.

He served his Country as a veteran of the United States Army, where he served in the 82nd Airborne Paratrooper Division, and served in Desert Storm during the invasion of Kuwait. He was kind hearted, giving, and always loving to everyone. He consistently did things for others anonymously, never for any recognition, but just because he cared for people. He was a loving father, brother and friend. As a father, he was incredibly active in his children’s lives, and never missed an event they were involved in. He loved his family and enjoyed reading comic books in his spare time.


In addition to his parents, his nephew, Chris Whigham,  preceded him in death.
