John Ramsay | Founder

July 17, 1941 – April 29, 2021

Mr. Ramsay was a graduate of Auburn University with a degree in Agriculture and had over 45 years of experience in storm debris removal and reduction operations and management. Working all disaster work since Hurricane Camille, in 1969, Mr. Ramsay is one of the foremost experts in all phases of a debris operation, including removal, reduction, recycling and disposal. As one of the owners and the founder of CrowderGulf, he took personal interest in each of the municipalities we have served over the years.

In non-emergencies, Mr. Ramsay was a well-respected member of the timber industry. His experience in agriculture, farming, and silviculture provides opportunities for CrowderGulf to leverage additional services and expertise to our clients. He was well respected in the field and his technical advice has been sought after by other contractors, municipalities, and various agencies such as Wildlife and Fisheries. Mr. Ramsay was especially involved in creating innovative ways to recycle debris wastes.

John Carol Ramsay, son of the late Lyman and Edna Ramsay, born July 17, 1941 in Mobile, Alabama and was a lifelong Ramsay Road resident in Grand Bay, Alabama went to be with his heavenly family on April 29, 2021.

Working side by side with his brother Woodie Ramsay on many ventures, Gulf Equipment Corporation was established to meet the needs of the telecommunication era. With a work ethic that rivals none, he was an entrepreneur in every sense of the word having pioneered a disaster debris management company that stands as an industry leader, CrowderGulf.
