To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under Heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1
A time to be born, TRAMANGO RAMONE ROPER, entered this world May 2, 1973 in Akron, Ohio. He was born to Anita Roper (mother) and Milton A. English (Nino ) father-- deceased.
A time to live, He lived a very full life in Akron. He graduated from Tallmadge High School where he excelled in football #44. He attended Kent State University.
A time to plant, Tramango (Tray) was a self-employed photographer in his business-- Northern Exposure. He is known for his great culinary skills. To have a taste of his barbecue ribs or chicken was a real treat. He had genius musical talents. He would hear music in his sleep and wake up to compose the most beautiful symphonies-- a combination of genres of music and sounds—but this gift only pales when compared to his love for his children.
A time to laugh, Tray would bring joy to an environment. His boisterous, infectious laugh would inspire and bring laughter to most everyone. So full of life, he would encourage and find something good to say to those he encountered.
A time to Love, Tray and his soul mate Renee Martin, shared 22 years of life. Together they raised three beautiful children-- Kameron and Corey Roper and a beautiful daughter Madyson Roper. Tray enjoyed cooking with Maddy and watching Ohio State football with the boys . Family is what he cherished most. ….that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of his labor—it is a gift from God. Ecclesiastes 3:13.
A time to mourn, On December 12, 2017 Tramango was abruptly taken from us. He leaves his mother Anita Roper; preceded in death by his father, Milton A.
