Cruz Ramirez Guzman, 69, of Odessa, passed away Sunday, August 30, 2020 at his residence. He was born May 3, 1951 in Mexico to Amelia (Ramirez) and Julian Guzman.

He married Juanita Natividad on January 6, 1968 in Pecos. They were married for 38 years when she passed away in 2006. Cruz worked in the oilfield as a field supervisor. He loved being outside in the yard; watering the grass and trees, cleaning, and enjoying a drink in his lawn chair. When he wasn’t outside, he was probably out playing his machines at the casinos. Cruz liked to stay busy and his hard working hands never stopped; he was always looking for projects around the house. He loved his grandbabies and loved and cared for his family. Cruz always had a smile on his face and loved to joke around with everyone. He was always willing to help anyone that needed it; his door was always open.

Cruz is survived by his son, Michael Guzman (Alva) of Odessa; daughters, Nancy Burrola (Raul) and Rosemary Russell (Juan Carlos) of Odessa; mother, Amelia Guzman of Pecos; brothers, Lorenzo Guzman of San Antonio, Jesus Guzman, Julian Guzman and Armando Guzman, all of Pecos; 14 grandchildren; 20 great grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; companion, Josie Ramos of Odessa; as well as his four sons, Joey (Silvia), Ricky, Adrian & Efrain Ramos; 7 grandchildren; and 2 great grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Juanita Guzman; father, Julian Guzman; brothers, Juan and Ruben Guzman; sisters, Marina Venegas and Socorro “Corrin” Lopez; grandson, Raulito “Baby” Burrola; and great grandson, Raul Burrola III.

From the first day I met cruz almost 13 years ago he welcomed me into the family as if I was his own grandchild. I told him he reminded me of my great grandpa who had passed away a year before. His smell his laugh his love is something I will always remember about him . Going outside and seeing him watering the grass or just sitting watching the clouds pass by and my kids running over to hug him and sit with him.... You were one of the most genuine, loving and just all around best great grandpa to my babies! We will never forget you and all your love. Everything you did was with love and I know we will all go through life with a big piece of you in our hearts ,and that alone will make us love each other a little more and do everything as a family in your memory. We love you grandpa Cruz always till forever ❤
