Ramiro Cañas Sr.

BEEVILLE, Texas – Ramiro Cañas Sr. went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014.

Ramiro was born Dec. 9, 1935, in Los Indios, Texas. Ramiro was the youngest of three sons and one daughter born to Epigmenio and Herlinda (Garcia) Cañas.

Ramiro worked as a glazier in Sterling for 15 years. His passion was his music. He played the accordion, and everyone loved his music. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years of marriage, Rachel (Gonzales) Cañas; his sons, Ramiro Jr. (Elvia) and Juan (Rose), both of Sterling, Oscar (Sally) of Rock Falls, Epigmenio (Darcy) of Bettendorf, Iowa, and George (Naomi), Freddy, and Augustine, all of Beeville; his daughters, Clarita Menchaca of Corpus Christi, Texas, Martha (Tony) Lopez of San Antonio, and Rachel (Michael) Garza of Beeville; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, whom he loved very much.

He was preceded in death by two sons, Joe and Epigmenio; and one daughter, Josie.

We would like to thank the staff at Davita Dialysis Center, Woodridge Rehabilitation Nursing Facility, Spohn Hospital, Kindred, Angel Bright, and all others that took part in caring for our father.

A gathering of family and friends will be at 10 a.m. Monday at Angelus Funeral Home in Beeville, with a procession at 12:30 p.m. to Primera Baptist Church in Beeville for a 1 p.m. memorial service.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established.
