Please share a memory of Santos to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Santos (Tito) G. Ramos, Jr., 72, of Rio Hondo passed away on Friday, December 23, 2022. Santos known to his family and friends as Tito, was born on August 7, 1950, and raised in La Tina (Rio Hondo, TX) and graduated from Los Fresnos High School. He was the oldest of 5 children born to Santos and Maria Ramos. He was also the oldest of the Ramos grandchildren and was spoiled by his beloved grandmother Guadalupe C. Ramos. He grew up working cattle in Loma Alta, Port Isabel, Arroyo City and in other local ranches alongside his Grandfather Alfonso Ramos and his father Santos Ramos. He never met a stranger and was respected by family, friends and acquaintances alike. He had a long and successful work history with Marathon LeTorneau in the Port of Brownsville, Lockheed Martin/United Launch Alliance in Harlingen and with the Texas Boll Weevil Eradication out of Raymondville, TX. Tito truly enjoyed hunting, with deer being his favorite to harvest. His uncle Adolfo (Buford) Ramos was his lifelong hunting buddy and they always had great stories to share. In later years, his son Martin and nephew Teo Ramos joined him in hunting and creating new stories to tell. He had a weekly outing with his uncle Daniel Diaz to Buena Vista and sometimes to Brooks County to either mend fence or check on cattle and of course to catch up on anything and everything. Tito Ramos wasn’t one to attend church, but he truly believed in the power of prayer, and he had his morning routine to start off his day. He is preceded in death by his Grandparents Alfonso and Guadalupe C. Ramos and his Parents Santos and Maria Ramos. He is survived by his loving wife of 33 years Juanita (Janie) Caraveo Ramos, his son Martin Ramos and his siblings, Lupita (Alfredo) Trevino, Delia (Russ) Muller, Sam (Vivian) Ramos, and Fred Ramos. He also leaves behind his aunts and uncles Francisca (Pancha) (Vicente+) Gonzales, Manuela (Arnulfo+) Cortez, Edna (Daniel) Diaz, Rachel (Perfecto) Carranza, David (Gracie) Ramos, Robert (Maggie) Ramos and Dora Ramos to cherish his memories. He especially leaves behind a wonderful woman he loved and respected, Maria Elena Diaz Ramos.
