The Heavens called for David Phillip “Tata Davy” Richards Ramirez on Friday, January 4, 2019. Davy’s strong and courageous battle with cancer ended at the age of 64. He was born on December 21, 1954 to parents Belen and Joseph Ramirez of Tucson. He grew up rough and tumble in Menlo Park with his 6 brothers, graduated from Cholla High School in 1972 and later married in 1975. He was an avid member of the community, the local YMCA and made his career in the family’s business, El Pueblo Roofing, his father’s legacy.

Known best for his cheerful personality, laid-back attitude and enormously caring heart. The ultimate outdoorsman, he lived life teaching the lessons of his father; camping, fishing, hunting, grilling, respect and family above all else. He loved the Dallas Cowboys, the UofA Wildcats and being a husband, father, son, brother, friend and most importantly, Tata Davy.

Survived by his wife, Lorena, children David J. (Chad) Ramirez, Carissa M. (Carlos) Camacho, Christopher “Critter” (Christy) Ramirez and Stephen “Nico” (Samantha) Ramirez, step-children, Armando and Margaret Sotelo, brothers, Joe (Drina), Rene (Susan), Andy (Therrie), Phil (Sue), Larry, Kenny (Cynthia), in-laws, Kimmy (Scott), grandchildren, Danny, Carlos Jr., Luis, Nico Jr., Hunter, Meadow, Zoe and Melanie, godchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Preceded in death by parents, Belen and Joseph, wife Sherrie and grandson Armando. Until we see that smile and hear that laugh again; rest in peace forever.

A special thanks to the doctors, nurses and resp therapists at St. Mary’s and Banner UMC 3DW; you guys rocked!
