Obituary of Arthur James Ramsay
The family of Art sadly announces his passing at University Hospital on January 19, 2023.
Art is survived by his wife Vonnie (nee Kirk) of 48 years, brother Jack (Theresa) Ramsay of London, brother Mike (Lorraine) Ramsay of Bobcaygeon, and sister-in-law Sandra Ramsay of Severn. Predeceased by his parents John and Lil Ramsay of London and brother Peter Ramsay of Severn.
Art was born in 1939 in Dixie (Mississauga) Ontario and raised on a fruit farm on Cawthra Road. In 1968 Art moved to London where he and Jack started a small company called Kar and Kustom. In 1969 they moved on to bigger things and the company became Action Accessories, a very successful wholesale motorcycle parts and accessories company.
Art retired when he was 50 and he and Vonnie enjoyed spending time at their cottage on Lake Huron and the winters at their home in Florida. In their spare time they travelled extensively around the world. Art mostly enjoyed being outside riding his lawn mower at the cottage and puttering around the gardens. He also loved and watched TV, especially NFL and NASCAR, sometimes enjoying a good rum and coke.
Cremation has taken place and a memorial Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at University Hospital for their care. Donations to your favourite charity would be greatly appreciated.
