My brother John Ramsey and I are so sorry to hear of John's passing. Our mother Lenora Ramsey was a relative of his mother Henrietta and our dad Shubal Ramsey also worked at Diamond Chain. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family, especially his wife Mary and sisters Sharron and Linda. You will be in our prayers.

John was one of the best human beings I've ever known. He would do anything to help anyone with no questions asked. I have more memories with him than can be posted here including tailgating at Purdue, sitting with him in Stand E at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, USS Indianapolis reunions, the Scottish Rite, etc. He was a lot of fun to be around but more importantly, he was a true friend. John meant an awful lot to my Dad and Mom. John stepped up when my parents needed a friend and our family will be eternally grateful for it. I made sure that he sat with my family at my wedding because he was family to us. Thanks to him, I will spend every May at the Speedway and every Fall at Purdue with my wife and kids. Godspeed Mr. Duncan, I will miss you but will see you again someday.

So sorry to learn of John's passing. I feel privileged to have known John and to have him as my friend, from the first day I came to work at Diamond Chain nearly 50 yrs ago. We used to laugh at the irony of him being a Purdue guy and having a red and white Corvette and I, being an IU grad, having a gold and black one. Rest in Peace.
