Obituary for Ramkissoon Ramlakhan

Ramkissoon Ramlakhan was born on December 9, 1941 to Ramlakhan Seerattan and his wife, Doolarie at the Petit Morne Estate, Ste Madeline, San Fernando, Trinidad, West Indies. He was the second of four siblings. His older brother, Harry Ramlakhan, who lives in Florida was his best friend in his last days. Harry and his wife, Leela, who he always called by her legal name, Sumintra and who recently passed in the month of October would talk constantly. His younger sister, Angela Deo and youngest sister, Toy Khan who both live in Trinidad and their husbands, Frank and Matthew are just as close to him.


He was the husband to Mona who he had three children with, Ingrid (Ann Marie), Reuben, and Melessia. He was also the Dad to Sharon Ramdeen, who passed in 2009. He was the Father-in-law to Mohammad (Ingrid’s husband), Yolanda (Reuben’s wife), and Harripersad (Sharon’s husband). He was grandfather to Ryan, Faiza, Caleb, Joshua, Julie, and Mark. His honorary sister, Esther Bagaloo was loved by all his family.


Ramkissoon or Ramo to his family, made sure to stay close to his relatives. He visited every one of his cousins and all 11 of Mona’s brothers and sisters and their families. He worked many jobs in his life, from a Usine Sugar factory worker to driver of Parliament officials, to taxi driver and for several years before retirement, an Ambulette driver.


Ramkissoon enjoyed life and did all he could to make his family and friends happy. He worked hard to ensure his kids got a better life in America. He was devoted to the Lord, and prayed daily. He was a member of Bible Believers Ministries and when he could not make it to Church, he would speak on the phone with the pastors and the congregation.


He survived major surgery for a benign brain tumor at age 61 and made a full recovery, working to age 65, before retiring. He was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in September 2012 but he fought it with all his might. Whether vacationing with his family or taking a swim in Reuben’s pool, he continued to live life to his fullest capabilities. He was loved by all and will be missed. He is now in God’s care
