The word stranger did not exist in Ramon’s vocabulary. He loved meeting people where
ever he went.
He made many friends by engaging them in conversation. As our family receives
condolences from family & friends, the words special & unforgettable are frequently
used to describe him. He’d celebrate with others as well as visit the sick & console the
bereaved. He believed a short visit or a phone call would help those who were grieving
He retired from the City of Albuquerque after 33 years of service. After retirement he &
Grace joyfully watched their grandchildren. They taught them how to garden & grow
chile & other vegetables which they then shared with neighbors & friends. They taught
their grandchildren to work hard, share what you have , help others and to have fun.
Ramon lived a humble life and touched so many lives with his zest for life.
Special appreciation & gratitude to son-in-law Ruben Abeyta. Ruben was by Ramon’s
side throughout his last years. They were best buddies. Thank you Ruben for loving and
caring for Ramon.
He adored you.
