Kevin Ramsey

Firefighter Ramsey was a member of the Detroit Fire Department. He was stationed with Tactical Mobile Squad 3. He had 20 years of service. 

During the morning and during the afternoon of July 29, 2017, Kevin and his comrades fought two structural fires. After returning to the firehouse, Kevin stated that he felt nauseated and had chest pains. Advanced medical responders administered to Kevin and he was then rushed to a local hospital. 

Tragically, later that day, Kevin passed away due to a heart attack caused by stress and over-exertion. 

Kevin had been an EMS medic before becoming a firefighter. 
Florian, Patron Saint of
Firefighters, pray for Kevin
and for those who have lost him.

The members of the Detroit Fire Department are in mourning over the death of their brother. Kevin loved being a firefighter. He was well-liked and well-respected by his fellow firefighters. He had an uptempo personality. He died in the service of his community. He will be forever remembered.

Kevin's loved ones are devastated by his sudden and tragic death. He was loved. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

Kevin is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his wife, Amy; his step-daughter and his step-son.

Thank you for your service to the community, Kevin.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Pray for all who die suddenly. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

Pray that Kevin is in Heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
