PARIS -- Christopher Todd Ramsvig, 33, of Paris, left this earthly life after a short battle with Melanoma on July 1, 2018, and is with our Savior.
He was born on April 2, 1985, in Muskegon, to Robin Lee Tice LaMadline and the late Scott Kevin Ramsvig. He leaves behind a wonderful son, Christian Scott Ramsvig; brother, Adam C. Ramsvig (Leslie), of Grand Rapids; sister, Brandi L. Sweet (Darrel), of Paris; nieces, Madelynn and Willow; step-nephew, Zayden; stepfather, Lonnie LaMadline; maternal grandmother, Nancy Fulton, of Paris; paternal grandmother, Patricia Ramsvig, of Gaylord; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and girlfriend, who he was very close to.
Chris lived in Brohman most of his young life before moving into the Big Rapids area. He received his high school diploma and was a graduate of Baker College. He was a member of the IBEW Local No. 876 and was employed as an apprentice at Rauhorn Electric, as a substation technician.
Chris was an athlete and especially enjoyed playing basketball in school and just for fun. He was gifted and talented in this area and shared his moves and skills with his son, Christian, and challenged his brother, Adam, on the court often. Together, they all liked to play and watch basketball. He also enjoyed watching football and "Big Brother," hunting, fishing, boating, listening to music, going to concerts and having a good time with family and friends.
Chris was easily liked and holds a special place in the hearts of many people. He was especially close to his mother, son, sister, brother, grandma, aunts and uncles. He was known as the favorite of his Aunt Kathie and Grandma Nancy's "lil' sweetheart." He liked to laugh, joke and goof around, and it is easily seen in his hundreds of pictures and selfies with Christian. Chris was a people-pleaser and would hug and snuggle like no other. He was always up for a good time.
Preceding him in death were his father, Scott K. Ramsvig; maternal grandfather, William Fulton; paternal grandfather, Milford Ramsvig; and uncle, William Iltis.
Funeral services will take place at 11 a.m., Thursday, July 5, 2018, at the Daggett-Gilbert Funeral Home in Big Rapids. The family will greet friends one hour prior to the service on Thursday at the funeral home. Christopher will be laid to rest at Highland View Cemetery in Big Rapids.
Memorial contributions will be accepted by Christopher's family for Christian, his son.
