Guadalupe D. Ramirez, Jr. passed into the arms of the Lord on Dec. 10, 2020 at Memorial Hermann Southwest in Houston. He was born March 3, 1958 in Wharton to the late Guadalupe and Pauline Ramirez.

Guadalupe was a lifelong resident of Wharton and attended school at Boling High School. He married the love of his life Anita (Gutierrez) on May 10, 1976 in Wharton.  He loved to go fishing and his family described him as a “workaholic” when it came to working on and painting his cars. His children fondly remember how much he loved to BBQ but his true joy in life was spending time with his 19 grandkids and great-grandchildren who will dearly miss him.

He is survived by his wife Anita Ramirez (Gutierrez); his children: Timothy and his wife Brittany of Bay City, Philip and his partner Jessica of Wharton, Charles Wayne and his wife Leonor of East Bernard, Monica Salcido and her husband Anthony of Boling, and Donna Estrada and her husband David of Wharton; 19 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren (and one on the way!); and his brothers: Julius, David, Jesse (Merlinda), Joe, James, Jimmy (Debra), Louis (Bertha); and sister Mary.  

He is predeceased in death by his dad Guadalupe Driscoll Ramirez, Sr., mother Pauline DeLeon Ramirez, sisters Martha Rodriguez and Gloria Ramirez, brother Ruben Ramirez and daughter Abigail Gutierrez.
