I also had Mr Ramsey (Spiffy) as a teacher. I always hated history until I got into classroom Especially when the topic was of NH! I learned all my knowledge of my own backyard from him! His books are just as great! He was an awesome teacher and yes always looked Spiffy!

I remember having Mr. Ramsey as my English teacher in 7th grade. He would give us smarties candy if we got a 100 on our spelling test. RIP Mr. Ramsey you will be missed.

Mr. Ramsey gave me one of the more treasured photos I have of me and my dad. He had hopped out of his car to take it at the gas station on Cottage Street in Littleton and later sent us a black & white copy and dated the matte border: August 11, 1987. Thank you, Mr. Ramsey.

Mr.Ramsey did his student teaching at Littleton H. S. and helped us with our Senior Play. He recorded North Country history via his writing which will be enjoyed by future generations. Thank you, Mr.R. Rest in peace.

Floyd was such a nice, gentle man. His smiling face was always a welcome sight at "The Pot". God decided his house was built and it was time for him to take up residence with the angels.

Floyd was a sweet & gentle man. He will be missed by many. A friend from the WalMart Store in Littleton NH. I also knew him from the Chamber in Lincoln-Woodstock. God Bless

I remember Floyd when we worked at Franconia notch. He was a wise man and I appreciated his advice.He was great fun at Riverglen House during music.(he would give a thumbs up) when he liked a song and sang along. Funny, a little off color sometimes, to Laura-beths dismay. He will be missed.

You will be greatly missed, by many, dearest Uncle. I will, especially, remember you for your love for God; your kindness and love, to many; and your sense of humor. I often found you smiling even through the toughest of times. Everyone loved you. I am blessed to be part of your family.
Thank you to his friends for showing his family love and support through your kind words.

I had Mr. Ramsey as a teacher back in middle school. He was stern with us kids, but kind as well. He would read us stories he had written. I will never forget your kindness and how one year you paid for my school photos as my Mother did not have the money, and I was so upset because all the other kids got theirs. Years later I saw you and offered to reimburse you, however, you declined. Rest in Peace.
