Ramon Adame Jr., 34, passed away on December 30, 2015, at San Angelo Community Medical Center after a brief illness.
He was born on June 22, 1981 in Eldorado to Ramon and Martha Adame. He graduated from Eldorado High School in 2000 and was employed at Schleicher County Medical Center as a lab technician and central purchasing for 15 years.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents; Isabel Arispe, Jesus and Jesusa Adame, uncle Richard Adame, Sr., and aunt Margarita Arispe. He is survived by his parents; Ramon and Martha Adame, fiance Carmen Marisa Espinoza, grandfather Juan Arispe, Sr., brother Michael and wife Emily Adame and their children, Michael Jr., Jonnie Rae, Damari and Jayden Adame, all of Eldorado, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Ramon was better known as Tatis and always knew how to bring laughter to his family and before leaving the house he always said, "I love you." And If he ever forgot, he would come back to say it. Tatis enjoyed going on trips to Mexico with his aunts and Grandma Chavela. His aunts called him "stinker" because that he was, always playing jokes on them. He looked forward to waking up early on the weekends with his Dad to have breakfast with his Grandma Jesusa. Other hobbies he had was watching wrestling and playing basketball with his brother, cousins and other neighborhood kids. As he matured his hobbies changed and if the weather was tolerable you would find him sitting outside with his parents, that's if he wasn't cruising. Over the years Tatis had many animals: a bird named Mango, his chameleon Rango and his loyal and special dog Kato. After high school he found his calling and was employed at Schleicher County Medical Center as a phlebotomist. There he was known by many as being one of the best at drawing blood. Not only did he leave smiles on patient’s faces but he did a wonderful job of bringing laughter to his co-workers.
Tatis had love for so many but his love and sparkle grew larger than life each time he gained another nephew. His love for those boys is out of this world, they will remember him cheering them on at all their games as well as wrestling with him, their trips to the dollar store and making s'mores together. Most of all they will miss praying with him before meals, they’re prayer went “Thank you God for our food, for our moms and dads, for our brothers and sisters & for our new friends” and Tatis always finished the last line for them saying “and please God help us to be good, Amen”
Tatis poured so much love into his family and others. He spent every spare moment with his fiance, Marisa. She brought so much joy to his life and the smile we all knew Tatis to have was that much brighter. She will remember him most by what he told her all the time "I love you to the moon and back infinity times infinity forever and ever, Amen". We will all miss Tatis’ kindness, laugh, love and gentle soul.
