Our sincerest condolences to the Holguin family. He was our family’s hero. Thank you for all you did serving our country, and our community! You were an awesome mentor and I will forever miss “Young Lady....” and I’d stand at attention. I wasn’t even military. Then, all the words of wisdom followed. I used MANY of those conversations to become what I am today. Rest in peace, enjoy infinite amounts of Diet Coke and say hello to Dad. Lots of love!

What can you say about Ramon? Even though he was small in stature, he was giant among men.
He had such a loud strong voice that you could easily understand why he had been a military drill sergeant.
He accomplished so much in his lifetime! He was a military man, a drill sergeant, served in Viet Nam and a proud veteran. And he loved his guns! He made his own bullets and jewelry. Among other things, he made rings in the shape of the State of Texas, of which I have one. At one time he was also into motorcycles. He helped start the San Elizario Voluntary Fire Department and had been a volunteer fireman. For many years he ran the yearly San Elceario Catholic Church Fiesta. His booming voice let you know he was in charge.
He served on the San Elizario School Board for many years and was a fierce advocate for the children of San Eli.
He was a tour guide in San Eli.
He volunteered in so many areas and he loved serving his country and his community.
He will be sorely missed by all.
