Ramon worked as a Journeyman Drywall Framer for several years, but his biggest accomplishments were being a loving husband, father, and Pop-Pop. He enjoyed family gatherings, walks with his grandkids, fishing, and playing Washers and Dominoes. His yard and the great outdoors were what he lived for. He ALWAYS had the best looking lawn in the neighborhood. He was a Dallas Cowboys Fan (and his wife still loved him). He was a cancer warrior, and a courageous fighter until his last breath.
