Ramsey Casteel, 29, of Nashville, passed away in Dallas on February 3, 2011, surrounded by the family that loved him. During his 18-month struggle with cancer of the brain and spine, Ramsey also benefited from the love and comfort of a large network of extended family and friends from around the globe. This wonderful group provided Ramsey with loyal support and many acts of kindness as he faced the increasing physical challenges of the disease with patience, courage and dignity. Born on March 30, 1981 in Dallas, Ramsey was a lifelong member of Highland Park United Methodist Church. He was a graduate of Bradfield Elementary School, St. Mark's School of Texas Middle School and Highland Park High School. In 2003, Ramsey graduated cum laude from Belmont University's Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business in Nashville, where he was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. Following graduation, Ramsey pursued his dedication for, and love of, the country music business in Nashville. Most recently he was the associate manager with Mike Robertson Management. Working in Nashville in an office on Music Row was the fulfillment of diligent study and hard work, and was a dream come true for Ramsey. Ramsey is survived by his mother, Caroline Burk Casteel, of Dallas; father, Frederick R. Casteel, of Highland Park; sister, Catherine Casteel Olasky and brother-in-law, Peter L. Olasky, of London; aunt, Ann Ramsey Burk, of Houston; and aunt, uncle and cousin, Mabyn, Pat and Mitchell Day, of Silsbee. He was predeceased by his grandparents, Mildred Ramsey and Percy Beal Burk, of Tyler; and Lila Singletary and Rupert (Jack) McFerrin Casteel, of Beaumont.
