Ralph Ramirez

August 15, 1929 — February 21, 2023

Ralph Ramirez passed away Tuesday, February 21, 2023, in his home in Seguin, Texas at the age of 93 years. He was born August 15, 1929, in Sugarland, Texas, the son of Catarino and Juanita Ramirez. He was a resident of Seguin for over 30 years.

Ralph grew up in Weslaco, Texas and moved to Lubbock, Texas when he was young. He met his wife Mary there and they married on August 24, 1959. He became a Jehovah’s Witness in 1972 and actively served as an elder and full-time minister. His passion was to help others to learn about Jehovah God and his Son Jesus Christ. He wanted people to learn of a coming earthly paradise. His dynamic and charming personality drew people to him. He never met a stranger and he had a great sense of humor that amused his family and friends. Ralph cherished the privilege of serving as a volunteer in the construction of Kingdom Halls. His favorite hobbies were barbequing and fishing. Ralph also served in the Army and the Air Force before he married. Ralph was a wonderful grandfather, father, husband and a great friend to many.

Ralph was preceded in death by his parents, siblings Lidia Ramirez, Virginia Moreno (Blas); Felicitas Garza (Juan); Rodolfo Ramirez (Esperanza), and Ramon Ramirez. He is survived by his two daughters Betty Ramirez of Seguin, Texas and Hilda Flores and husband Manuel of Seguin, Texas and two sons Martin Ramirez and wife Natalie of Floresville, Texas and Ralph Ramirez Jr. of Lubbock, Texas; granddaughter Stephanie Ramirez and husband Patrick; grandson Marcos Ramirez; and great grandchildren Angel and Patrick “P.J.” Aranda. He is also survived by his siblings Martin Ramirez and Isabel Ruiz and numerous nephews and nieces.

Ralph’s family is extremely grateful to the amazing caregivers of Guadalupe Regional Medical Center Hospice, Dr. Nolan and staff and would also like to thank family and friends for their love and support.
