MR. REUBEN A. RAMSAY more affectionate-
ly known to us as Strawberry (Barber Straw) was
an avid sportsman excelling in various sports
such as Cricket, Boxing (former boxing champ-
ion) and Baseball (member 1932 Champion Bra-
ves). He was also actively involved in the early
politics of these Islands having the honor and dis-
tinction of being the first Secretary and Co-
Founder of the First Political Party in the Virgin
Islands (the Progressive Guide 1936-1941).
Mr. Ramsay was also a very accomplished typist
and stenographer having been practically self-
taught, and who has taught many of our leading
people in our community today.
"Godbrother" or "Pops" as his boys called him
was a man true and sincere, one that words could
not describe. He was a man with a "heart of gold"
simply a beautiful human being.
"Pops" you will be missed not only by your boys
that you raised and cared for from babies, but by
everyone who has had the opportunity to have
So long Pops. It has been wonderful having you
around. Your memory will always live on in the
hearts and minds of those you have touched in
some little way.
May God grant you the blessings for all the
loving things that you did.
