MADEIRA BEACH - Earl “Ray” Ransom, Jr., 55, passed away March 4, 2014 in Madeira Beach, Fla.
He was predeceased by his wife, Debbie Jean Ransom of Blacksburg, S.C.; his father, Earl Ray Ransom Sr. and brother, Stephen King Ransom of Gastonia, N.C.
Ray is survived by his mother, Dorothy King Ransom of Seminole, Fla.; daughter, Stacy Dawn Ransom of Greenville, S.C.; sister, Nila Ransom (Michael) Postupack; and niece, Kasey Lynn Postupack, of Seminole.
Ray loved family, conversation, and fishing. He never met anyone he did not try to strike up a conversation with. He was born with a most generous heart, as all who knew him well will attest to. He was one of the most positive human beings to walk this earth and the very definition of a good man.
To our most beloved father, brother, son and friend, you will be greatly missed. Happy trails, pal, and may God take good care of you until we meet again.
The family will hold a private memorial. Arrangements entrusted to A Life Tribute, 716 Seminole Blvd., Largo, FL 33770.
