Roy M. Ramirez of Seguin, Texas went home to be with the Lord on September 16, 2021, at the age of 63, with his family by his side. Roy was born on February 5, 1958, in Seguin, Texas to Jose O. and Paula Ramirez.
Roy was a loving, devoted father, grandfather and, great friend to the people in his life. He was an avid barbequer, a very hard worker, loved to drive his truck and was all around a one-of-a-kind man. Roy had stories that could last years if he told them all. He had nicknames for everyone he encountered and always helped someone in need because he wanted to. He would not accept someone paying him to barbecue as he enjoyed doing it because when the time came for Roy to need something, they would do it for him. He was a private man; he would tell people what he wanted them to know. His priority in life was to take care of his kids, Rebecca, and Gabriel. Roy will be extremely missed as he was very loved and cherished. He lived the life he wanted to and enjoyed every minute of it. If he could do it all over again, he would choose to do it the exact same way.
He is preceded in death by his father, Jose O. Ramirez and mother, Paula Ramirez; sister, Herminia Salazar Zepeda and nephew, Estevan “Stevie” Longoria; his aunts, Hortencia M. Gallegos, and Estefana G. Morales.
