Jose Ramirez


On Thursday, August 13, 2020, the Ramirez family suffered a major loss. Jose Lorenzo Ramirez lost his long time battle with cancer. He passed away at the age of 69, in the city of College Station, Texas.

Jose was born on October 8, 1950, in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, to Carlos Ramirez and Cristina Tello. At a young age, he was taught to always work hard. Jose was a wild and free spirit, and he enjoyed his life to the fullest. On March 6, 1976, he married Maria Juana Hernandez. Together, they raised eight wonderful children. They instilled in them to always work hard, be strong, and never give up. These children were able to grow up and give them 20 beautiful grandchildren. Jose was always proud of his family. He would always encourage them to stay united and to love each other.

Jose was always cracking jokes at his own expense. When the family was going through a tough time, he would always try to make things light. Whether that be a joke about his missing teeth or the fact that his grandchildren were passing him in height! He knew that laughter was the best medicine. While he was in hospital and his family was concerned for him, Jose would crack a joke just to make them feel better. It shows how selfless he really was because he was more concerned for his family.

After a long day at work, his favorite pastime would be watching novellas. He would move the earth just to be back home in time to watch the next episode. He also enjoyed working with his hands. Jose was a builder and made DIY projects ranging from beds to tree houses. He not only built a beautiful family, he also built long time friendships.

Jose was always a big man, and heavy set. He could lift couches and mattresses over his head without a problem. To his family, he was invincible. It was as if he had super strength and nothing could touch him; nothing could hurt him. During his fight with cancer, he remained strong. Never once complained about pain, and continued with a smile on his face.

Jose was the definition of independent, because he did so much on his own. Jose came to the United States to look for work. In doing that, he not only found a job, but he found a place that his family would later call home. He took a step into the unknown. He never showed that he was scared and he always took what life threw at him. Nothing and no one was going to stop him. Jose alone established roots in the United States for his family, and that allowed them to thrive. Even though he was independent, he would do anything for his family. He would jump over hurdles just to make them smile.

Jose's family was his pride. He gave them everything he could and cherished his grandchildren with all his heart. Jose is survived by his wife, Juana; his 7 children, Juana, Luz, Juan Carlos, Carmen, Josefine, Angeles, and Cristina; and several grandchildren.

El Jueves 13 de Agosto del 2020, la familia Ramírez sufrió una gran pérdida. José Lorenzo Ramírez perdió su larga batalla contra el cáncer. Falleció a la edad de 69 años en la ciudad de College Station, TX.

José nació el 8 de Octubre del 1950 en San Luis Potosí, México, hijo de Carlos Ramírez y Cristina Tello. A una edad temprana se le enseñó a siempre trabajar duro. José era un espíritu salvaje, libre, y disfrutaba su vida al máximo. El 6 de Marzo del 1976 se casó con María Juana Hernández. Juntos, criaron a 8 hijos maravillosos. Les inculcaron a trabajar duro, siempre ser fuertes y nunca rendirse. Estos hijos pudieron crecer y darles 20 hermosos nietos. José siempre estuvo orgulloso de su familia. Siempre los animaba a permanecer unidos y a amarse los unos a los otros.

José siempre estaba bromeando a su propio costo. Si la familia pasaba por un momento difícil, siempre trataba de hacer las cosas ligeras. Aunque fuera con una broma sobre sus dientes perdidos o el hecho de que sus nietos lo pasaban en estatura. Sabía que la risa era la mejor medicina. Si el estaba en el hospital y su familia estaba preocupada por él, José bromeaba sólo para que se sintieran mejor. Mostrando realmente cuanto quería mas a su familia que a el mismo.

Después de un largo día de trabajo, su pasatiempo favorito era ver novelas. Movería la tierra sólo para estar de vuelta en casa a tiempo para ver el próximo capítulo. También le encantaba trabajar con sus manos. José fue un constructor e hizo sus propios proyectos que extienden de camas hasta casas en árboles. No sólo construyó una hermosa familia, sino también construyo amistades de mucho tiempo.

José siempre fue un hombre grande, fuerte, y nunca se rendía. El en su trabajo dio lo máximo. Para su familia el era invencible. Era como si el tuviera súper fuerza y nada podía tocarlo; nada podría hacerle daño. Se mantuvo fuerte durante su lucha contra el cáncer. No había ni un momento en que se quejaba del dolor, y siguió con una gran sonrisa en su rostro.
José era la definición de independiente, porque hacía mucho por su cuenta. José vino a los Estados Unidos para encontrar trabajo. Al hacer eso, no sólo encontró trabajo, sino que también encontró un lugar en que su familia más adelante llamaría su hogar. El dio un paso hacia lo desconocido. Nunca enseño que estaba asustado y siempre tomaba lo que la vida le había arrojado. Nada y nadie lo podría detener. José al establecer raíces en los Estados Unidos para su familia, permitió que prosperaran. Aunque era independiente, haría cualquier cosa por su familia. Saltaba sobre cualquier obstáculo sólo para hacerlos felices.

La familia de José era su orgullo. Les dio todo lo que pudo y atesoraba a sus nietos con todo su corazón. A José le sobreviven su esposa Juana, sus 7 hijos, Juana, Luz, Juan Carlos, Carmen, Josefina, Ángeles, Cristina, y sus varios nietos. Un servicio funerario se llevará a cabo el Miércoles 19, 2020 en el Hillier Funeral Home en 4080 Hwy 6, College Station, TX 77845 a las 5pm. Una misa se llevará a cabo el Jueves 20, 2020 en la Iglesia Católica Santa Teresa en 1212 Lucky St, Bryan, TX 77803 a las 11:30 am.
