Obituary for John Ray Ramirez, Jr.

October 7, 1990 - May 5, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 26


Born on October 7, 1990, John Ray Ramirez, Jr., was 26-years-old when the Lord took him home. His room was filled with family, close friends and loved ones standing by his side as he met Our Lord. John Ray battled heart failure for 3 years, until May 5, 2017. His little sister, Jennifer, squeezed his hand, while his father and mother held onto him during his final moments. He left us knowing that he was loved. No words were left unspoken between him and his loved ones.

As in life, Jennifer and John Ray stayed at each other's side during his final moments. He was her constant protector and best friend. He will be remembered for his strength, not only in fighting death, but in living his life. There is no one that John Ray loved that he wouldn't stand for, should they have needed him. It was a common theme in his life. He was the first in line whenever trouble raised its head. He was always willing to give of himself in the most meaningful way.

John Ray loved the outdoors. He loved to go camping, boating, jet skiing, water skiing, anything out on the lake. John Ray loved his truck and working on vehicles. If it had an engine, he wanted to learn all about it in case he had to fix it. His favorite passion was fishing, he spent countless weekends and overnighters on Bob Hall peer in Corpus Christi, TX.

John Ray is survived by his father, John Ray Ramirez; mother, Sandra Lee Ramirez; sister, Jennifer Ramirez; brothers, Shawn D. Ramirez and Justin Ibanez; and, grandmother, Norma Arellano. He is preceded in death by grandparents, Roberto Maldonado, Jr., Jessie Pena, and Lucile Ramirez Pena. He will be missed and celebrated by those that knew him.
