Our beloved Jose “El Guero” Guadalupe Ramos unexpectedly passed away on September 1, 2021 at Mercy Medical Center in Merced, CA at the age of 56.
Jose was born on December 12, 1964 in La Union de San Antonio, JAL, MX to parents Jesus and Matilde Ramos. At the age of 16, he immigrated to the United States and he worked and lived in Snelling, CA in order to provide for his family back home. It was during this time he met his life partner and wife to-be, Margarita. Jose and Margarita married on November 29, 1986 and eventually raised two children, Julian and Adrian.
Jose enjoyed working on cars, gardening, and barbequing for his friends and family, and especially spoiling his grandson, Zach. He was known for being a social butterfly, having a good sense of humor, and for his humility. He also dedicated much of his life’s work to the fruit & tree nut farming industry. At the time of his passing, he was a Shop Foreman for Braden Farms and had been employed with the company for over 30 years.
Jose is survived by his mother, Matilde, wife Margarita, two sons Julian and Adrian, grandson Zachariah, and seven siblings, Silvia, Jesus Jr., Clara, Margarita (Magi), Juan Manuel, Raul (Chico), and Miguel (Chino).
