On Wednesday, February 10, 2021, Santiago (Jimmy) Ramirez, loving husband, supportive father, and attentive grandfather went to be with the Lord.

Jimmy was born on July 25, 1948 in Abernathy, TX to Mateo and Filomena (Escobedo) Ramirez. Jimmy served in the United States Air Force from 1971-1975. He received a Bachelor of Business Administration from Pan American University in 1983. Jimmy worked professionally as an Information Technology professional, though he also was a teacher and a realtor. On June 15, 1991 he married Clara Caldera Ramirez. They were blessed with one son together, Jonathan.

Jimmy had a passion for Jesus and studying the Bible. He was always involved in the church and had a heart for the nation of Israel. Jimmy was a Bible scholar and teacher of God’s Word. This passion resulted in the manifestation of his ministry where he taught God’s word for over twenty years. He was fond of the beach and fishing with his son. In younger years, Jimmy was in Toastmasters and weightlifting competitions. Throughout his life Jimmy regarded his body as the temple of the Holy Spirit and as such led a healthy lifestyle. Besides studying the Bible, he enjoyed studying the stock market and was always learning about the latest technology. He was known for his constant heart for ministry, his tenacity, and his kind and compassionate spirit.

Jimmy was preceded in death by his father, Mateo, his mother, Filomena, and his sister Olga. He is survived by his wife Clara, his son, Jonathan, his grandson August (Auggie) as well as his sisters, Bifonia, Mary, Maria Inez, Esther and two brothers, Hugo and Isaac.

Tio "Chago" Ramirez was someone I had always wanted to emulate when I was a young boy. He was good nurtured, funny, cool and possessed a strong Godly character.
The last time I saw him was when I did a practicum during my master's degree in San Antonio in 2009. He invited me to dinner with his family and Tia Lupe. It was a wonderful time of reminiscing and laughter about good times.
I am thankful for the brief times we spent together and hope to spend eternity together again in our Savior's presence.
Blessings,
Samuel "Chato" Perez

I remember the first time we came to your home group. Jonathan was running around in his Spider-Man Suit with the fake muscles. Y’all told me I was like Jimmy’s sister, Esther. The beginning of a wonderful friendship for me and Esther and a bonus relationship with your family! Jimmy assumed my husband, Mike, wasn’t saved (even though he was) maybe. The because he didn’t come with me to the home group—nice of him to try to minister to him when he met him anyway. Lol.
