Pantaleon Ramos, 80, a caring father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to all, peacefully passed away on Sunday, December 11, 2022 at his residence. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife of 37 years, Alicia Ramos, and his son Mando Ramos who are meeting him by the golden gates with our Lord to greet him in heaven.
Instilling in his children at a very early age the value of family, work, and education, he was a devoted father who raised his children with humility, responsibility, and a love for the Dallas Cowboys. As his children’s first teacher, he was sure to stress the significance of a solid education, and always found the time to answer a question, proofread an essay, or solve a problem, no concept was too big or small. His grandchildren received the same support from him, yet he pushed them even further. He was the family encyclopedia that held a wealth of knowledge, the family role model, and their biggest inspiration.
A humble, self made man, Panta worked his way from the fields, to the classrooms of Weslaco ISD, to owning his trucking company. Even on his days off, he always found a job or task he could take on. He was the epitome of a hard worker taking pride in all he did. An avid reader, writer, and a sport analyst, he was a lifelong learner who often challenged himself to be better.
Any given Sunday, or Cowboy game day, you were sure to find him in his Cowboy attire, always hoping for that Cowboy win. A loyal Cowboys fan and family man, meant that game day was a day full of celebration surrounded by family and friends while providing a meal for all who joined him. “Win, lose, or tie, a Dallas Cowboy fan till I die.”
Loved by many for always having kind words, even if it was only a few, he never failed to extend his hand and help you in any way he could. He was a simple man with a heart of gold.
Mr. Ramos is survived by his loving children, Estela Ramos, Daniel Wayne Ramos (Susie), and his granddaughter he raised as his own, Yvette Perez (Robert); his grandchildren Deran Ramos, Orlando Ramos (Kayla), Myranda Ramos (Justin Villanueva), Mando Ramos Jr, Aaron Ramos, and Alyssa Ramos; his great-grandchildren, Jayden Perez, Jarred Perez, Joseph Perez, Camila Ramos, and Justin Villanueva Jr.
