On August 16, 2014 the gates were opened for our beloved husband, father, grandfather and dear friend to join god and the angels in heaven. Marcos Ramirez was born on February 14, 1940 in Ontario, CA. At an early age his family moved to Redlands, CA where he met his lifelong love Carmen Mendoza. Her only competition was his first car, which he purchased at the age of 16. He leaves both behind at their home in Loma Linda, CA where they raised their family.

Marcos was very active and used each moment wisely. He enjoyed time with family and friends, and looked forward to attending the annual High School reunions. He was a dedicated worker who also enjoyed the outdoors, working on various projects, camping and traveling. Marcos had a youthful spirit and was a father figure to many. He was most proud of his children and grandchildren. Marcos was an active member of St. Josephs the Worker Catholic Church, active in bible study and other parish events. He was a member of Loma Linda Council 9037 Knights of Columbus and a fourth degree color corps.
