HARTWELL WARDELL"SKIPPER"   RAGSDALE  III

Share This Obituary



Skipper is the only name I know. To Rosalind and I he was the pesty big brother who teased us and who we thought was so talented because he could play those drums. He was a friend and also my godfather, whom I loved. Skipper comforted my family when my sister, my mother, and my father passed away. I was saddened as my family and sister Lee to hear of his passing. Valerie and Derick our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

My sincere condolences to the Ragsdale family. Skipper was a friend from childhood and the only person I would trust with my own mother's funeral arrangements. He was admired by many, and will be missed by all.

The light is out but the memories will glow forever. Skipper, you are such a blessing to so many of us and we will forever hold you in a special place in our hearts. The Howard family goes way back to the business when it was on Imperial Ave. Playing with Rosalyn, and watching the business grow and then move to its current location. ...lots of memories. You buried 9 of the Howard family members and each time was done with love and tender care. I/We love you so very muchRest In Peace

Mr. Skipper Ragsdale was one of the kindest gentlemen I have ever met. He approached everyone with a loving,quiet-spoken, and comforting demeanor. It is no wonder that he was such a successful mortician; he brought comfort to so many families in San Diego..The entire community mourn his untimely passing and appreciate the legacy of service that his family has brought to us during our most challenging moments. We are grateful. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends,

Had the privilege of working for him and his dad.
He has graduated. More power to him. He will be and is already missed, but we are all here to graduate. He has reached the highest graduation. God Bless him for what he did on earth and God Bless his family to get through the troubled waters.
