Orlando Laurenzo Donnell Ramsey

August 21, 2003 ~ April 30, 2022 (age 18)


Orlando Laurenzo Donnell Ramsey was born August 21, 2003, in Oxford, MS to Orlando Ramsey and the late Angela L. “Pumpkin” Smith. 

Orlando was such a joy to be around and loved life. He loved to smile, watch cartoons, and listen to music. You could surely get a smile from him when you gave him balloons and stickers. He also loved for people to talk to him. 

On Saturday morning, April 30, 2022, Orlando peacefully passed away at his home. He will forever be missed by and loved by his grandmother and guardian, Essie L. Smith; father, Orlando Ramsey (Sharia); siblings, Angel and Vanya Ramsey, Melvin Savage, Jr.; bonus dad, Melvin Savage, Sr.; paternal grandmother, Theresa Ramsey of Oxford, MS; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends. 

Orlando was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Angela Smith.
