Ramon was a veteran of World War II and served in the US Navy on the U.S.S. Cebu.

Ramon was a God-fearing man and very devoted to his family, always ensuring nothing was

missing at home. He raised 11 children and supported his elderly father and mother-in-law, who

loved him as a son. With little education, Ramon never gave up and was always ready and

willing to work at any job. When World War II started, he was not afraid to serve his country.

Ramon was a hardworking man; even at 98 years old, he could be seen helping out at his son’s

service station. He loved to sing and dance, will be remembered for his smile and for the love he

gave his whole family.

Pallbearers will be Alexander Mancha, Daniel Mancha Jr., Daniel Mancha Sr., Hector Mancha Jr., Hector

Mancha III, Carlos De Leon Jr, Christian Lujan, and Lupe Samaniego III. Honorary Pallbearer is Juanito
