Matthew Peter Ramirez
September 5, 1993 – February 22, 2020
Matthew Peter Ramirez, born in Odessa, Texas on September 5, 1993. Passed on February 22, 2020, at the tender age of 26. He is survived by his Father Ronald John Ramirez, Mother Leticia Maldonaldo Ramirez. Brothers Aaron Ramirez, Jacob Ramirez and his sister in law, Adriana Gonzalez his Grandmother Elpidia Valenzuela and his large family including his numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him very much. Matthew is preceded in death by his grandparents Phillip and Ida Ramirez and Pedro Maldonado. Matthew had a harsh outer shell, but on the inside he was as soft and kind as they come. He was well mannered and respectful to all those around him. He never met a person that he could not befriend or be kind to. If you snapped at him in even a mild tone he would take it to heart and try to better himself.
Matthew always had a tender gentleness for animals and a great love for dogs. He loved going on cruises to spend time with his mother and testing out his new expensive headphones. Matthew loved spending time with his family and if there was a family event you could guarantee he would be there looking to guzzle all the soda in the house. His favorite foods were Pizza Hut and Whataburger. He could outshred any amateur guitarists in the city, and was constantly learning covers to play so he could put on a show for anyone who took the time to listen in his parent's or his Tio Manuel's living room.
When he wasn't putting on a show for the crowd, my brother loved to learn new skills through reading, like how to throw a decent punch or how to look inward to find peace with all the noise that surrounded him. Above all he was a great friend, nephew, grandson, son and brother. He left an impact on all our lives. We will all miss him and wish he could have stayed longer. But he is at rest now and we find comfort in that, and I hope you can all do the same. Please celebrate his life with us at the Viewing on the 25th and 26th Of February, Rosary will be at 7 PM Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at Frank Wilson Chapel. Funeral Mass will be held 10 AM Thursday, February 27, 2020 at St Elizabeth Church with Father Tim Hayter.

I had the pleasure of having Matthew as a student at St. Mary’s. He was a wonderful person. I enjoyed our time together there. He was truly a gentle soul.
