Uriel Garcia Ramos was sadly killed early Saturday morning on October 6th, 2018. He was attempting to repair the carpool vehicle he was in when he was struck by another car. We are raising money for his funeral expenses. He leaves behind his fiancee Juanita and her two children, Jessica and Bobby Tucker, which he considers his own.

Uriel or "Uri" as his friends would call him, was loved by so many people. He never said no to a request and was always the first one to lend a hand. He was humble, kind and selfless. It is no surprise that he was the first to volunteer in changing the tire at the scene of the accident when his carpool from work was heading home that tragic morning.

He was a friend to Sacred Heart Academy where his fiancee Juanita works and helped with so many improvements and projects around the school. Juanita is the Kindergarten Aid and Kim Tibbetts, her close friend, is the Kindergarten teacher. They love to perform different skits and plays for their kindergarten class throughout the year. In addition, they love to transform the stage in their classroom to varying scenes and themes for the annual Symposium at the school. Uri was always the one to help and make their vision come to life. For the last 15 years whether it was a Polynesian Paradise with a Tiki Bar, Volcano Stone Age Cave or a Space Adventure backdrop, Uri used his talents to make it happen. When Kim and her daughter suffered a horrific car accident in July of 2016, Juanita and her family were there by their sides. A ramp was made at their home for wheel chair access. After months and months of rehabilitation, the ramp was no longer needed at the home. Uri came and disassembled the ramp and used the materials to build a mining trough and dinosaur fossil dig station at the school. He also built a beautiful new set of steps to their front door where the ramp used to be. Kim stated "He made beauty out of my handicap ramp that I hated!" He also did countless maintenance jobs, painting, shelving and construction at the school. He even remodeled one of the teachers homes. Thats how much he loved his friends and Sacred Heart Academy family.
We are asking for donations to help with the unexpected funeral expenses for Uri. Thank you so much for your prayers and donations during this tragic time for the family.
