Vicente (Chente) Ramos, Jr., 66, entered into eternal rest on, Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at his residence surrounded by his loving family.
Vicente was born in 1955 in Laredo, Texas. After graduating from Nixon High School he immediately enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he devotedly served his country from 1974-1979. He worked as a jailer for the Laredo Sheriff’s Department. He also worked for Entex, Reliant, and CenterPoint Energy from 1982-2021.
Vicente loved joking around, listening to music, dancing, but most of all spending time with family and friends. He was very devoted to his family and loved them endlessly. He had a heart of gold, always giving wholeheartedly of himself, and giving advice to anyone who sought it. Vicente fought a hard battle of cancer for 3 and ½ years and later succumbed. He was always a hard worker and always exceeded his work performance and was never just satisfied with 100% he always went above and beyond. His motto was “DO IT CORRECTLY OR NOT AT ALL”.
