Gary Ramsey Memorial Fund

Lisa DeLand's beloved, Gary, died suddenly on April 26, 2014. This heartbreaking change in Lisa's life has left her facing serious obligations - alone. The friends of Gary and Lisa want to help. She can not do this on her own. We're asking for your help, too. Every donation is appreciated.

Gary lived life to the fullest from his heart. He had a serious side infused with deep wisdom from his practices as a fire keeper, sacred drummer and dancer. He also had a wickedly wonderful sense of humor and infectious belly laugh.

As a business owner, Gary often worked seven days a week, twelve hours a day. A gifted and talented woodworker at his Austin-based company, Ramsey Woodworks, Gary committed himself to creating the right piece for each of his customers. He made sure to pay all of “the guys” a living wage so that they could support their families.

Thank you for your heartfelt donations to help Lisa. Please share this story with your friends.
