Tribute & Message From The Family

On the evening of March 10, 2019, our beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, Matthew Ramirez, born May 13, 1977 age 41, unexpectedly passed away at home.

He is survived by both parents, Joe and Mary; siblings, Michelle, Michael, Marcus and Monica; three nephews; six nieces and numerous cousins.

Matthew earned a bachelor's degree in 2017 from UT Austin.

As a son, Matthew was devoted to his parents and provided daily care, assistance, love and company. As a brother and uncle, he blessed us with his presence when he attended birthday parties, sporting events, concerts, competitions, special events, or just wanted to hang out.

Uncle Mickey was THE BEST uncle who had an uncanny way of comfortably relating to children and developing a genuine loving bond. As a friend, Matt, Matty, Sweet Jones, Jamesiest Jones was a source of light as he brightened lives and shared a special bond with each of them. Always willing to extend a helping hand or lend an ear.

Matthew was the kind of person you wanted to be around. You wanted to be near him because you knew you were going to have a good time. His jokes, his quick wit, his funny comments kept you smiling and laughing…constantly. If you knew Matthew, you were blessed, and you will cherish the memories fo sho… 😊 He gifted us all in ways we may not even realize and made our lives better by his love.

My continued prayers and love to Matt's entire family. His friendship was such a blessing in my life and I'm so glad I have so many awesome memories. Life will not be the same without him that's for sure. I looked forward to sharing jokes with him just hoping they'd meet his approval and make him laugh as much as he made me laugh. Even his voicemails were hilarious. I know I will miss you every single day.

My thoughts and prayers are with Matt's family. I knew Matt from high school and I considered him one of my best friends. He was there to listen and ALWAYS made me laugh- we bonded over every episode of Seinfeld. His witty humor and kindness are what I remember the most and I am thankful I had the blessing of knowing him. My heart hurts for your family Matt.

Sweet, funny, caring, loving,do anything for anyone....Matthew....James Jones. Although I haven't seen him in awhile, as lives seem to take us in different directions, I have never and WILL never forget him. All the beautiful things said about him by his family are so true, and I pray for each and every one of you to have peace and comfort knowing that he has a special place in Heaven. I have never known anyone that could make me laugh as much as he did. I'll always remember our trip in a van to see Dave Matthews with Sandy and Monte. Matthew took me to the airport and helped me move...and made the time we worked together at SLSOT the BEST...FULL of laughter. I do feel truly blessed to have had this beautiful person in my life.
