Edward Lawrence Ramsey passed away earlier this year, days before his retirement from the United States Postal Service. Ramsey worked at the Olney Post Office and is remembered by many for becoming a friend during his years working in the Olney community.

His obituary can be seen below:

Edward Lawrence Ramsey was born in Brunswick, Georgia on December 2, 1955 and departed this life on January 29, 2022 following a brief heart-related illness.

Ed spent over 20 years proudly serving in the United States Army. His duty stations included military installations in Panama, Louisiana, Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington DC, and Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio, Texas. Following his military retirement, Ed served as a clerk in the United States Postal Service for 27 years. Most of those years were spent at his beloved Olney Post Office where every customer became a friend.

Ed enjoyed his side operation as a lawn care specialist and enjoyed meeting and greeting his weekly customers. Ed believed that in addition to a daytime job, one should also have a side job. He taught this principle to all of his hardworking sons. Ed was also known for his love of automobiles and enjoyed working on his vintage BMW M3 which he continued to drive every day. His Sunday grill sessions during the warm spring and summer months were relaxed yet unforgettable.
