Gilberto Ramirez

Gilberto Ramirez – Better known as “Ramirez”
It is with great sorrow the passing of our loving Abuelito “Ito” Ramirez. On March 2, 2024, at the age of 72, with his wife Victoria Ramirez Granados, along with his only daughter, Maria Jose Garza Ramirez & son-in-law, Rolando Garza.
He was born on June 6, 1951 in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico to the late Maria Guadalupe Galvan Gutierrez & Pablo Ramirez Ramirez. He had 7 siblings in all Maria Elena, Jesus, Yolanda, Minerva, Matias+, Evaristo & Porfirio Ramirez. He had 3 grandchildren Victoria Isabel, Aiden Ilan & Violet Idel Garza.
Daddy was the most caring, giving man and loved by everyone he came in contact, especially his family!
He spent countless hours at his Shop, Ramirez Marble, which he had recently closed down and finally decided to retire! Yet, he kept his shop open as his place to hang out and play a nice game of dominoes with his friends.  He enjoyed spending time cleaning his yards, painting, cutting the grass, trimming trees or fixing anything that needed to be fixed around his houses or shop. He enjoyed watching his “Columbo” late at night, his 007 James Bond Movies and his latest find Music Video on YouTube!  
Daddy spent so much time with his grandkids.  He would go pick up Violet from school every Tuesday and would take her to eat food (ok…ice cream cones most of the time) to play with her friends as well picking her up from soccer practice and enjoy quality grandparents time.  
Daddy had his special time with Aiden, he would love taking him to soccer practice, watch him play his games and cheer him on the sidelines as he would pace endlessly! He also would gladly take him to play Disc Golf and come back home tired after walking 18 holes or take him to tournaments and wait for him to finish.
Daddy enjoyed every moment when his first granddaughter was born.  They had their special bond of every July when the Ringling Brothers Circus would come to Houston, we always made sure to see it! He would buy her anything she wanted & always had their picture taken! Even until now he would always make sure she had everything she needed or wanted.  
Daddy had the blessing to have Rolando as his son-in-law but if you would have asked him, was more of a son! He was always willing to give him advice, or help him figure out a dilemma he made be dealing with or simply wanted to invite him to the newest place he found the sold the best tacos.  They definitely had an undeniable bond.
Daddy you will truly be missed our hearts are broken because we will no longer physically see you but know you watching from above!
Will always hear you playing your guitar and singing “Wednesday days and Wednesday nights” as he said it or “La Barca en que me iré!”
We love you dearly and know that you are now our Guardian Angel!
In Daddy’s Honor, if you would like to wear any shade of blue, or any type of plaid color with blue jeans.

    My condolences to the family. May he rest in peace. Heaven gained a great man. Thank you Tio Beto for the afternoons when you played your guitar and sang to me. “De colores” will always hold a special meaning. This is not a goodbye but a see u later.

    Remember Gilberto when Roberto de los Reyes asked me if I could help Gilberto find a job at Kroger Warehouse. He worked there for a long while, then decided to start his own business. Have good memories of him with us and his sister Minerva.
    Please accept our deepest condolences to all his extended family members.
    Prayers from Arthur and Alice Ramirez.
