Ramon Mogol Altoveros

March 12, 1957July 12, 2020

Ramon Mogol Altoveros, 63, passed away on Sunday, July 12th 2020 in the care of the Baptist & Wolfson Town Center Emergency Room.

Throughout his life in the Philippines, Ramon is best remembered through his favorite sport, baseball. From the Philippine Little League, where he competed in Japan as part of the Philippine team in the Southeast Asian Games. He continued through the Philippine Baseball League (PBL) as star player for the Tigers of Los Baños, best known and remembered as a slugger in the batter’s box. Upon finishing his vocational certificate in automotive repairs from Surigao Technical School in Surigao, Phillippines, he continued his baseball career with the Los Baños Tigers, earning multiple MVP awards and titles of home run king. Ramon also participated as a player for the Jazzie Denim in the 1980 PBL All-Star Series in a friendly bout against the Sugus All-Stars, which were all distinguished players from the PBL teams. He ended his baseball career in 1982 to move to Norfolk, Virginia with his parents to work as a warehouse worker for the Gordon Paper Company alongside a part-time job as a photographer with Rene Cruz Photography of Virginia Beach.

He then moved to Jacksonville, Florida in June 1991, and started jobs at Sherrod Vans Incorporated and the Publix Deli Department at Mandarin. He later got a job at Maidenform as a materials handler until the Orange Park location closed. While at Maidenform, he started his own independent photography service, Star Shine Video and Photography, and concluded his work with Publix. After Maidenform he worked for American Technical Ceramics. From ATC, he then worked for Kelly Temp Services and was then assigned to work at the Vistakon warehouse. As he worked for Vistakon, he was part of one of the last groups to become full-fledged Johnson & Johnson employees. From the warehouse, Ramon moved and then ecstatically worked as part of the distribution team for the Vistakon/Johnson & Johnson Company. He deeply enjoyed his days managing the warehouse floors with a beaming smile and returning the positive energy his coworkers shared with him. Ramon also lovingly participated as an Usher, Cross-bearer and unofficial photographer at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church. At home, he cared for his family whether it be auto repairs, chauffeuring, nail work, chef, landscaper, electrician, plumber, home renovator and fisherman.

Ramon is predeceased by his mother, Rosalina, father, Moises, and his three brothers; Rodolfo, Romeo and Ricardo. After 32 years, he is survived by his wife and best buddy, Carina; his daughter, Roma and son-in-law, Kirkfred; and his son, Joseph. He is also survived by his two sisters in Virginia, Purita and Flora. Ramon is too survived by multiple nieces and nephews, as well as godsons and goddaughters, all of which he cherished dearly and uniquely.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 11 AM on Saturday, August 1st at Hardage-Giddens Chapel Hills Funeral Home, 850 St. Johns Bluff Road N, Jacksonville, FL 32225, with Fr. Jhon Guarnizo as Celebrant.

Uncle Ramon,

I can never thank you and your family enough for the support you have given me throughout my teenage and young adult life. Your home quickly became my safe haven when I did not want to go to mine. You always greeted me with a lot of laughs and jokes even if I was having a hard day; you were always smiling.

Thank you for capturing the day I got to marry my best friend. Thank you for your words of wisdom when I was getting ready to leave my family for the first time. Thank you for the times you reminded me to "just enjoy".

Until we see each other again...

Uncle Ramon and family,

You are in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers. My high school and early college years wouldn’t have been complete without the occasional trip to the Altoveros household. You were always so full of energy and welcoming to everyone that came in. Your laughter, your smile, and your funny jokes I will always remember. I know you were loved dearly by your family and your friends and it showed with everyone around you who just absorbed that positive and genuinely loving energy that you had. I will never forget the “milk” you offered, how you were just “one of the guys” whenever we all came over, and to see the true love between you and auntie and your children. Til we meet again Uncle.

Mr. Altoveros was so incredibly kind and generous. He helped to raise two of the kindest people i've ever met. He has made the world a better place. Heaven must be so happy to have him while we mourn his loss. I will be eternally grateful to him for capturing our wedding and refusing payment, not even my family members would do that! He will be fondly remembered and his light will be greatly missed.

I write this with great sadness over the unimaginable loss of a dearest friend close to my heart.
This wonderful person, inside and out was a good friend of mine. Ramon was an inspiration and is best remembered through his passion in sports particularly baseball. A member of Cagayan de Oro Misamis Oriental Gingoog Athletic Association, where until now his legacy remains and will never be forgotten.
One of his beliefs in life was the importance of being authentic with people, saying what needs to be said and doing what needs to be done because it’s good for the relationship and for the soul. I always admire him for that and for his gentle and caring nature.
Now my hope is that he rest in peace knowing that he is loved by so many. When we love people it’s so comforting to know that they will always be with us in our hearts.

I’ll see you again my friend,
Lerio Arazo Del Puerto
