Albert James Ranson Sr.
Nov. 27, 1932 - Feb. 22, 2018
Albert James Ranson, Sr. finished this part of his adventure on Feb. 22, 2018 while surrounded by his family in Lawton, Okla.
Albert was born on Nov. 27, 1932 in New Orleans, La., and was the youngest of six brothers. He married Marilyn Lamb on Dec. 16, 1955. Together, they raised three children: Julie, Jimmy, and Steven. He was adored by seven grandchildren (Jennie, Kimberly, Andrew, Susan, Shelby, David, and Heaven) and by his eight great-grandchildren.
He lived a life of quiet accomplishment and service. Never seeking attention for himself, he served such causes as the United States Air Force, the Knights of Columbus, the Mariposa Museum & History Center, and many others. Above all, he was wholly devoted to his family.
He will be laid to rest in his adoptive hometown of Mariposa.
Remembrances may be sent to the Mariposa Museum & History Center, 5119 Jessie Street, Mariposa CA 95338.
