K. Clive Ramsey, President of US Metal Powders, passed away on July 24, 2016, at the age of 82 surrounded by family following a courageous battle with cancer.

In 1965, he met Ingrid Margrethe Friman while both were visiting Rome, Italy.  They married a year later and settled in St. Catharines, Canada before moving to Pottersville, NJ in 1970.  In 1978, Clive and Ingrid moved to Bernardsville, New Jersey, where they raised their family and resided for the past 38 years. Ingrid passed away in October 2015.
