Connie Newton Ramsey 85, of Depew

Connie Newton Ramsey, loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and basketball coach, passed from this life on May 2, 2019 at 85 years of age.

Coaching girl’s high school basketball at his alma mater, Depew, was not something he necessarily set out to do, but when the opportunity came to change from the boy’s game to the girls 6 on 6 game, he was all in. Success came early and often as his 1964 team went 29-0 before dropping a three point loss in the first round of the state tournament. It didn’t take long to get back to the big house and go the distance as his 1969 team won the Class B State Championship.
