Our beloved husband,father, grandfather and brother died at home in Laguna Hills after courageously fighting bone cancer for three and a half years. Larry was born in Los Angeles two years after his brother John. The family moved to Eagle Rock when Larry was in the 2nd grade and he lived
there through high school. Larry was an outstanding
athlete and excelled in football, baseball and track
at Eagle Rock High School. Last year he was inducted
into the Eagle Rock Hall of Fame at a ceremony attended by
his family and life-long friends and classmates, Bob Johnson,Spike Burlingame, Americ Hadley and many others.
After two years at Glendale College, Larry was drafted
into the Dodger organization, where he played in the minors
until a serious injury took him out of the game he loved so
much. While playing for the Dodgers, Larry married his
college sweetheart, Gail Frances Jones. They had a son
and daughter, Tom and Jennifer, and shared forty-seven
The Ramseys moved to Laguna Hills from Burbank in
1978. They lived a wonderful life in Nellie Gail Ranch, where they enjoyed horseback riding, tennis and golf. Parties and holiday celebrations were frequent and well attended by extended family and close friends.
Larry was a salesman for an industrial products firm for over 30 years and he worked until the last week of his life. His family is grateful for the support of his employer and co-workers at Kent H. Landsberg Co.
Larry appreciated and returned the love of his wife's parents,Bobs and Tom Jones. He was a devoted grandfather to Scott and Madelyn Ramsey and Camille and Mark Anthony Calentino.
We will all miss Larry's quick wit and keen mind. Larry
was a loyal friend and champion both on and off the field.
