      Ruben T. Ramirez met his future wife at Bearkat Drive Inn in Raymondville, Texas through her cousin Cornelio Valdez in 1957. 2 months later he married the Love of his Life, Oralia Valdez DeLeon Ramirez on April 9th, 1957. From there they went on and had 9 children and worked hard for all his kids to be able to provide for them. He taught his kids how to work hard which today many of us can relate to all his hard work. He should our family how to work hard together and to keep us united. He was a loving father and loved helping many people. 
Ruben T. Ramirez worked with his father in Raymondville, Texas moving houses and hauling dirt, sand, gravel with their backhoe and dumtruck for 10 years. In 1974, he moved with his family to Washington where he picked asparagus along with his children for the next 11 years while migrating back and forth from Texas.
 In 1984, he moved to Hermiston, Oregon where he started a trucking company, along with his son Ruben Ramirez Jr., named Ramirez Trucking hauling Agriculture Commodities where today we continue to carry his legacy. 
For many years as a family tradition, Ruben would take Christmas Trees to sell in Denton, Texas. Which became a month that we all would treasure and look forward to. The highlight of the trip was to get to Denton, Texas and set up the tree lot as fast as we could be able to go watch Ruben’s favorite team. The Dallas Cowboys. ✭
      Ruben will be missed, but definitely not forgotten. He taught us so much, and his memories will last forever.
