Michael’s Biography Michael Ramirez was welcomed into this world by his parents Lisa Mesa and Eladio Ramirez on May 29, 1999. He was born in Doctors Hospital in Modesto, California. Michael was the middle child of three, beloved by his older sister Alexis and younger sister Aliyah. Michael from a young age never feared to show his true self from being the center of attention and doing things his way. His outgoing self, loved to theorize the way things happened or how things would happen. He had strong opinions and was always vocal about it, never once not firmly standing his ground. There were many things he loved from playing video games, fishing, wrestling, welding. Michael’s love for video games started when he first got his GameCube and from there he was hooked. He most recently had a PS4 and his favorite games were, Fortnite, Call of Duty WWII, Battlefield 1, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and Gran Tourismo Sport. Growing up Michael lived in Empire, attending Empire Elementary from Kindergarten to his 8th grade graduation. He then attended Johansen High School where he became avidly involved with the Future Farmers of America following in his sister Alexis’s footsteps. He raised lambs and was there every step of the way going to feed, practices, and took part of the craziness that comes with fair. He signed up for AG classes, took welding, and became a big part of the FFA family. During his Junior year he, like his older sister, ran for office and for his final year in high school he was part of the Officer Team. He also was part of the wrestling team which was something he enjoyed to do with his best friend Mateo Gordon. During his four years in high school he had plenty of accomplishments including his Greenhand degree (FFA), Chapter degree (FFA), a Bronze medal (Wrestling) and lastly his high school diploma. Michael took pride in his Mustang a gift from his dad, that he nicked named himself Mustang Mike and it was accepted by his best friends. Michael loved a lot, one of those most dear to his heart is he’s dog CP a German Shepherd/Pit Bull mix of three years that would light up at any given second when hearing his car. He also had other family pets Daisy, Luna, and Edgar all being dogs and his tortoise from when he was a kid. Michael unfortunately left this physical world on 12/31/17 after a tragic accident in his hometown of Empire, California. He is survived by his parents Lisa and Eddie, his two sisters Alexis and Aliyah. His service will be held at St. Jude’s Catholic Church in Ceres, California.
