To a great friend, mentor and second father to me. Ramiro Rodriguez, up until you passed and went to heaven, you probably never knew the amount of influence that you had in this world. Your laugh, your smile and your kindness will remain to linger throughout this world for decades. Thank you for always being a great friend, a great father to Greg and Rob, great husband to Gracy and great grandfather to all of your grandchildren.

I'll always love you "MIJO"!

My deepest condolences to the family for your loss of such a wonderful man! I have known Ramiro since 2004 when I was looking for someone in the insurance industry. He immediately caught my attention with his friendliness, outgoing character and eagerness to help! He was such a wonderful person always willing to talk as if you were the most important person at the moment. He never made me feel like he was too busy to talk or answer questions. I felt as if he was part of the family!
I hope you find comfort in knowing Ramiro was able to make a positive mark on humanity in so many ways! He will be sorely missed by me and many, many others! May your hearts be filled with all the great memories you have of him!

My deepest condolences go to all of Ramiros family and to my aunt Gracie. Him and Gracie were truly the greatest power couple and I hope to one day to find a love like they have. He was such a strong man and his fight proved it all. He will forever be missed and loved. ❤️ ✝️

Ramiro and Gracie played a huge part in raising me to be the person I am today. I am forever grateful to have had him in my life. It is because of him that I will always try and fix something in my house first before even considering hiring a contractor! He will forever be a part of my life and I will miss him. Thankful to my aunt Gracie for finding happiness with him and bringing him into our family!
Rest In Peace.

He was my brother and my best friend. We talked every day on the phone. We worked on so many projects together, laughing and having a good time even as our muscles grew sore from a hard day's work. There are memories of him everywhere around me, from things we built to tools he gave me and the stories associated with them. We never said no to each other's request for help, no matter how crazy the project was. His was a life well lived and I will miss him every day.
