Raul E. Ramirez went to be with the Lord on January 8th, 2020. Raul was born September 13, 1920 in Austin, Texas to Manuel Ramirez and Virginia Escobar. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife of 77 years, Manuela, and his siblings: Manuela, Augurio, Manuel, Jr., Tom, Guadalupe, Paul, Chano, Victoria, Johnny, Felix, Victor, Andres, Gloria, and Adolph. He is survived by his daughters: Lupe Ramirez and Delia Trimble (Cesar), sons: Roy Ramirez (Margaret), Robert Ramirez, Rennie Ramirez, Raymond Ramirez (Patricia), and Rick Ramirez (Sandra) plus 23 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren. He will also be missed by numerous nieces and nephews for whom he‘s always been “Uncle Roy” and other loving family members and friends. Raul was a proud World War II veteran, having served as a Private First Class from 1944 to 1945 with Company I, 28th Infantry, 8th Division in the Rhineland-German Campaign. He received the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with 2 Bronze Stars, Combat Infantryman Badge, and the Distinguished Unit Badge. He used his GI Bill training to become a welder and mechanic so he and Manuela could raise their close-knit family. And they did, with love and an appreciation for the importance of family, religion, and education. Raul ended his career working for civil service, first at Kelly AFB and then Lackland AFB. The family is grateful that Dad/Grandpa/Great-grandpa was active and able to share his wisdom and stories and spend memorable times with family and friends until just before his death. We would like to acknowledge the staff at Brookdale/Kingsley, Dr. Tanjuatco and the VA Home Based Care Team, and Dr. Carretero and the VA Hospice Team for the care they provided our WWII hero. In lieu of flowers, donations in Raul’s memory can be made to St. Timothy Catholic Church. The visitation will be held on Friday, January 17, 2020 at Funeraria Del Angel Trevino Funeral Home, 226 Cupples Rd., SA TX, 78237 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with the rosary at 7:00 p.m. A Mass of the resurrection will be offered at St. Timothy Catholic Church, 1515 Saltillo St., SA TX 78207 on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Burial will follow at San Fernando Cemetery II.

To the Ramirez Family, ,
I have such fond memories of your Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather and Great-Great Grandfather...My favorite are those of him tap dancing to the tunes of his favorite dixieland jazz standards, or being in the company of family and enjoying his Sunday Bar-b-ques and praline candy; but mostly of always being greeted by him with a huge smile and open arms.

My sincere thanks for his past service to our Country and I extend my great admiration to the Ramirez family for having a Father who was granted multiple combat medals and badges during his time in the armed forces.

May he rest in peace...

With my love and deepest sympathy over the loss of Mr. Ramirez,

Margaret

My deepest Condolence to the Family of Raul E. Ramirez. Words can't even begin to express the gratitude I have for this great Man. As a classmate of his grandsons, Mark Trimble and Rey Estrada, it is obvious why this Man was so admired, respected, and loved. My belief is that the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.

Roy, Margaret, Kathy and Becky,
I saw your dad's, father-in-law, and grandpa's obituary in the paper today, and wanted to send my condolences.
Though I know it is difficult to lose someone so precious, it seems as though your loved one had a life full of love and family, which is a blessing. I don't recall if I ever had the pleasure of meeting him, but I can tell from all the family photos that he was a caring, loving man who will be missed dearly by family and friends.
Take care my dear friends...I would love to hear from you, Jo Gayle

Grandpa, thank you for all of the beautiful memories that I have of you when I was growing up. It was great going to your house on Piegan Street after church on Sundays to eat the barbeque you would prepare and playing games outside no matter the time of year. I remember the court-long basketball shots you would make and playing horseshoes with you and my cousins and uncles. Your example of eating good and having fun with family has influenced my life and the family that I now have. I love you Grandpa, and may God Bless you and my beautiful Grandma. Love, Little Rey
