With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Renato Ramirez, a light in our lives, who was born on September 8, 1938, in Santa Elena, Texas. He left us on September 28, 2023, leaving a void in our hearts. Renato was a beacon of strength, resilience, and compassion, always prioritizing family above all else. His love for his family was as vast as the Texas skies under which he was born and lived his life.\n\nRenato spent the majority of his professional journey in the oil and gas industry as an Oil Tech. His dedication to his work was second only to his commitment to his family. His profound love for his family was evident in his everyday life and actions, providing a loving and nurturing environment that will be remembered fondly. He is survived by his beloved wife, Rosa Ramirez, their cherished sons, Juan Lino (Thelma) Ramirez and Javier (Terrla) Ramirez; his grandchildren, Javier Andres (Diana) Ramirez, Gina Rhea Ramirez, and Kaitlyn Renae Ramirez; his great grandson Andre Javier Ramirez and his step great grandson Henry Ly. He was a treasured figure in their lives, and his absence leaves a significant void.\n\nRenato was preceded in death by his parents, Efrain and Maria Laurel Ramirez, and his siblings Efrain Ramirez, Emma Munoz, Marcela Garza, Maria Ella Peña, and Imelda Saldivar. As we mourn the loss of Renato, we remember the words from the Bible, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" (Matthew 5:4). We find solace in knowing that Renato is now in the company of his departed family members. \n\nVisitation will be held at Brown Family Funeral Home, 701 East Interstate Highway 2, Mission, Texas, on Friday, 29 Sep 2023, at 4:00pm CDT, with the Rosary at 7:00pm CDT.
