Ramon Perez peacefully passed away on November 7, 2019, surrounded by his family in Dominican Hospital of Santa Cruz. Ramon will forever be remembered as a generous, strong, hardworking and resilient man. He lived in Watsonville from 1998 up until his last days alive. He immigrated from Durango Mexico in search of a better life and education for his family. Ramon was the best father, husband, and friend anyone could ask for. His tenacity and courage will never be forgotten and his legacy will forever live through his children and grandchildren. Ramon was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in the spring of 2013. After months of combating cancer, he was told to be cancer-free in late 2014. Unfortunately, a second type of cancer known as Acute Myeloid Leukemia, which was caused by the chemotherapy Ramon received in 2013, took his life on November 7, 2019. Before passing, Ramon lived most of 2019 in and out of hospitals with the main goal to be healed to continue to enjoy life with the enormous beautiful and strong family god blessed him with. Forever in our hearts, Descance En Paz, Ramon “El Jefe” Perez. A special thanks to one of his daughters, Beatriz, for never leaving Ramon's side while in the hospital. Ramon is survived by his beloved wife, Beatriz Rodriguez and his children; Jesus, Raymundo, Marcos, Silvia, Beatriz, Mario Laura, Jose, Ramon and Guadalupe. He is survived by 14 grandchildren and many other family members. He was preceded in death by his mother, Antonia Perez.
