Obituary of Troy Peter Ramage

Storyteller, poet and fisherman, Troy Peter Ramage, 71, died February 21, 2019.

Born November 1, 1947 in Albany, Oregon, he was preceded in death by his parents, Dr. Carroll H. Ramage and Lois Moses. He called many places home including Sussex County, New Jersey; Greenbush, Maine; Masonville, New York; and many in between. Troy was a Wildlife Management graduate of the University of Maine in 1969. Even though Troy worked up until a few days prior to passing away, it is hard to narrow down what his occupation was. He was proudly a bull semen collector, mink wrangler, woodland management consultant, logger, Page Seed salesman, teacher's aide at BOCES, and salesman for Fantasy Fruit Farms just to name a few.

Troy's life will continue to be celebrated by his son, Vaughn (Michelle) Ramage; life partner, Bonnie Tripp; mother to his child, Carol Reevie; granddaughter, Brooke (Ryan) Burt; and step-grandchildren: Zane, Olivia and Ceceilia Wallace. As well as his sisters: Trudy (Ed) Chara, Tresa (Craig) Jones, Trilla Ramage and Twila (Kevin) O'Connell; and fondly remembered by his nieces, nephews, extended family, good friends, fellow "Boogiers", and all who knew him.

Troy has made a life of compiling unique adventures and meeting interesting characters along the way. We would all be so lucky to live a life as rich as his. As he grew older, Troy thoughtfully made some of his adventures into stories that his granddaughter and others could continue to treasure.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 from 12:00-2:00pm at C.H. Landers Funeral Chapel, 21 Main St. Sidney, NY. In lieu of flowers, we are asking you bring a hat, stories, or any jokes that remind you of Troy.
