Please share a memory of Rosendo to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Rosendo “Chen Chango” Ramirez Martinez Sr., 68, of Port Isabel, passed away peacefully at his residence on Tuesday, January 24, 2023. He was a beloved husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, brother, and a great friend. He became a shrimper at the age of 15 and worked under his beloved brothers Guadalupe & Rene Martinez. He later became a Captain himself and always had friends follow because he knew where the shrimp was. He also took his sons out so they would experience the shrimper life and see how hard it was but never wanted them to follow in his footsteps. He always had friends over when he would arrive from shrimping and would give away all the seafood, he would bring in. Christmas was one of his favorite holidays back in the day. He always made it a mission to buy a pig for everyone to enjoy. He later became sick and was unable to continue his shrimping adventures. His favorite hobby was to go to Jacarandas Daycare to play Bingo. Everyone loved him there. He loved spending time with his wife and his grandkids. Our dad will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He is preceded in death by his Father, David Martinez Mother Rosa Ramirez two Sons, Juan Carlos Martinez & Miguel Angel Martinez; three Brothers, David Martinez, Guadalupe Martinez, and Rene Martinez; three Sisters, Elida Hunt, Juanita Vergara and Rosie Martinez.
