Antonio Ramirez

March 1, 1979 ~ July 2, 2021 (age 42)


At the age of 42, Antonio Ramirez-Diaz died at home with his family on July 2, 2021. He was born on March 1, 1979, in Zacatelco, Tlaxcala, to Antonia Ines-Díaz García and Francisco Ramírez-Gutiérrez.

He spent the majority of his youth in his hometown, but he later moved to America. He was only interested in moving there for one reason: to live a better life with more options. He had enormous ambitions that he wanted to realize, even if they were costly, and he was willing to go to any length to make them a reality.  It was difficult for him because he wasn't used to being in a completely different nation, where everything was different from what he was accustomed to. He worked hard, though, and he was successful. 

He was able to find work and earn enough money to support himself, as well as practice writing and speaking English and find a place to live. His achievements, however, do not stop there. His ambition was to become a mechanic, therefore he spent his time watching films about automobiles. He began practicing fixing cars during the lessons and did well. He began repairing automobiles and was able to realize his dream. He was also able to find a partner Antonia Hernandez-Polvo, with whom he had two children.

Even though nothing lasts forever, his life was whole and happy, until he heard hurtful words that would affect him mentally and physically. He was diagnosed with Brain Cancer, which would ultimately lead to his death. Antonio was a treasured member of his family and circle of friends. He was a wonderful father, partner, friend, uncle, and individual. He was able to achieve his objectives, have a family, and live a happy life.
