Jose Ramirez, 71 of Chicago, Illinois, passed away on December 14, 2020,
after a long battle due to Covid complications. Born in Chavinda, Michoacan,
Mexico on July 24, 1949. His love for his native country, language and
culture was instilled in his children, nieces, nephews and grandkids. At the
early age of 17 he migrated to the United States in search of a better
future and Chicago became his second home. Dedicated over 30 years of his
life to baking treats at Hostess Cake Company.

He was the devoted son of Angelina Gutierrez and the late Jose Ramirez
Barajas. Survived by his siblings, Maria Elena, Celia (Salvador Pedroza),
Jesus (Martha Padilla), Martha (Alejandro Garcia), Eduardo, Cecilia,
Natividad (Jesus Maciel), and Laura (Javier Barragan). The beloved partner
of the Araceli Cifuentes, loving father to Maria Elena, Jose L. Jr., Hilda,
Sandra, Carlos, Yesenia, Jose, Angel and Jose Angel. Adoring grandfather to
Michelle, Destiny, Adolfo, Elena, Ximena, Joey, Josue, Julian, Angelica,
Fernando, Julian, Joanna, Gizelle, Samantha, Victoria, Carlos, Jacob,
Chelly, Emily, Julian, Kimberly, Jesus, Aliyah and Melanie, great
grandfather to Natalia. Adored and admired uncle to many nephews and nieces.

Jose's heart had no boundaries, always willing to offer a helping hand to
anyone he saw struggling. His charisma and smile would always brighten our
days and his love for life and his family was like no other. It is never
easy to see someone as important as our beloved Dad leave. He was the core
and the joy of the house, always worried for his children's well being. On
behalf of the Ramirez Family, we appreciate your support, company and all
their gestures of affection. There are no words to thank you as we mourn our
beloved Jose.
