On May 24, 2013, Charles Ramsey was present at an event to meet the public when a statue of him was unveiled. The unveiling took place in Stanville, Kentucky at the Eric C. Conn Law Office. Eric C. Conn was the host of the event and is known for his love of statues.
Conn stated, “I can’t think of a better way to commend my friend Charles than having a statue made in his honor.”
The sculptor decided to depict Ramsey as he was on the day he became a hero.
The sculptor has stated, “The most difficult part of making the statue is sculpting Ramsey’s unique hair style.”
Ramsey was accompanied by two members of what he refers to as “Team Charles.” He had to endure more free burgers as burgers and refreshments were served at the event. The statue, will be donated to a museum in Cleveland, Ohio, which is Ramsey’s hometown.
