Tranquilino “Quilo” Ramirez peacefully passed into the arms of his Savior and Lord on October 2, 2020. He was born to the late Fortino Ramirez and Esperanza Pavon de Ramirez on July 6, 1930 in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.
Desiring to make a better life for himself, Tranquilino immigrated to the United States in 1953. He possessed a strong work ethic and was employed in the air conditioning and heating industry for 15 years. He then went on to own and operate Ramirez & Son Air Conditioning for the next 20 years. Tranquilino was also a man of great faith and faithfully attended Templo Bethesda Iglesia Santa Pentecostes.
He enjoyed watching baseball and boxing; however, his greatest joy was spending time with his family, most especially his grandchildren.
Tranquilino was preceded in death by his parents, Fortino and Esperanza P. Ramirez; a son, Rudy Ramirez; and his sisters, Rosa, Victoria, and Elmira.
