Joe Frank Ramirez (Pepis)

The good Lord called our father, Joe Francisco Ramirez on January 31st 2018 at 8:17pm to go home. He became a father at a very young age do to losing his father at the age of 15. He helped his mother take care of five siblings while going to school and working two to three jobs at a time. He met his wife Graciela Ramírez, got married in 1967 and had 4 children. He lost his mother and his wife the same year one month apart in 1989. He vowed to his children that he would never remarry to dedicate his life to them. Unfortunately health-wise he had many battles. At the age of 14 he had a lifted house fall on him, was placed in a body cast and was told he would not survive. 1998 he was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer, 2005 triple bypass open heart surgery, a year later he was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure than had to start dialysis, fought a staff infection, became legally blind, In January 16th 2017 had his first heart attack, a year later had his 2nd heart attack that took his life. Through this all he continued his battle with dialysis for 11 years and 2 months. He was a great son, husband, father and grandfather. He never gave up and fought to his last breath with his family at his side.       So the Ramirez family is asking on his behalf. Any amount of donation will be gratefully appreciate and a blessing to help towards his services.
