It is with deep sadness that we share the passing of our cherished Ramon V. Armendariz at the age of 84 on Sunday, January 1, 2023. Ramon was most lovingly known by his family as "Paca."
Ramon was born in Mesilla, New Mexico, in 1938 and moved to El Paso, Texas, where he graduated from Bowie High School in 1956. He joined the United States Marine Corps and honorably served from 1957 to 1960. Ramon relocated back to El Paso to marry his sweetheart, Elisa. They raised four children together and he worked in different career fields until retiring from civil service in 1997.
Ramon was as an ardent reader with a passion for history and devoured books at a rapid pace. He is remembered as a humorous troublemaker-- he never failed to crack a hilarious joke, no matter how inappropriate. Ramon was also a foot-tapping lover of music, with a particular fondness for jazz and doo-wop.
Ramon is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Elisa Armendariz; children, Diana (Armando), Barbara (Ruben), Ray Gabriel (James), and Anthony (Roxanne); grandchildren, Frank, Marissa, Zoë (Gus), Nicholas, Janessa, and Ava; great-grandchildren, Ethen, and Vincent; brother Reyes (Emma).
