John Ramos

John G. Ramos passed into a heavenly reunion on October 7, 2016 at his ranch home of treasured views and gatherings.

Born in Suisun City on March 31, 1939, as the son of the late Lorenzo Ramos and Carmen Gill Ramos, John grew up on the family orchards in the Olive Pleasants Valley district and graduated from Winters High School, where he excelled in baseball and football. He achieved a SP4 ranking and decorations for rifle expert, sharpshooter and good conduct within the US Army Corp of Engineers. After a certified apprenticeship in carpentry, John simultaneously performed as both a master carpenter and local rancher as he farmed orchards including with his brothers, others and independently. He thrived in diving for abalone, on hunting or fishing trips and sports events or watching with others. In the past years, he regularly attended Latin Masses at St. Stephen The First Martyr as well as meetings of the Order of Elks. Loyally and consistently John supported and encouraged others.

John is survived by sister, Anita Eral, son Matthew Ramos, granddaughter Nicole Williams plus aunt Jessie A. Gill, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many valued friends. In addition to his parents, John was preceded by his brothers: James, Arthur and Lawrence plus nephew L. Dean Ramos.

Unkle John, what I will remember the most is you wearing your Ben Davis shirts & telling me you always had me with you as you pointed to the monkey, I like to think you only told me that but you probably told every kid. I will also remember picking apricots & making beds out of crates when I got bored watching & waiting for you and my dad to get done working. And learning to shoot with you and my dad at the back of your property at old tractor disks. And he smell of your home. And the way you snuck into Putah Creek at 545am because you could not wait 15 more minutes for me to open, you would scared me sooo bad I dropped all I had in my arms & you would just smile & laugh at me because I never got use to it. What I miss the very most is your smart remarks and big big smile. I guess I will just miss you period and I wish I spent more time with you. You were taken away too early. May you Rest In Peace & watch over us. Love you, Kimi Fernandez
