4x4 crush tragedy Tributes paid to ‘Mr Jaguar’

Tributes have been paid to a great-grandfather who died after being crushed by a Jeep he was working on.

Bryan Ramage (63) was in his garage at Chalkieside Cottages, near Cousland, when the vehicle slipped from its jack and landed on his chest last Tuesday evening.

A friend raised the alarm after finding the father-of-four pinned beneath the vehicle and firefighters used air bags to lift the car off him.

Denise Murdoch, operations manager with Carr-Gomm Scotland, where Mr Ramage was a support worker, said: “He was a real character, always talking about his classic cars. He had quite a collection.

“He will be sadly missed within Carr-Gomm Scotland.”

Despite a change of trade, Mr Ramage still had a passion for auto repairs, especially restoring vintage cars which earned him the nickname “Mr Jaguar”.
