Ramiro Bertram Perez, 62, went home to be with his Lord and Savior and his loved ones who have passed on before him on Thursday, September 10, 2020. Ramiro was born in Havana, Cuba to the late Roberto “Tito” and America Bertram Perez.
Ramiro was a sweet, kind, loving, faithful, committed, affectionate husband, father and grandfather. He had a strong personality and was extremely funny. He was a person, once meeting, you would never forget. He loved so deeply and with his whole heart. It was through his love for the Lord that he worked with Hispanic Ministries and pursued work as an evangelist, filling in at churches who needed his gift in delivering the Lord’s message. Ramiro was an ordained minister of the Church of God-Anderson.
Ramiro loved studying the Bible, talking to the Lord, working on his truck, painting, playing with his grandbabies, spending time with his family, looking at the stars, and his dogs.
In addition to his parents, Ramiro was preceded in passing by a sister, Raquel Perez; brother, Rolando Perez; father-in-law, Benjamin Taylor Spencer; brothers-in-law, Stephen Spencer and Robbie Spencer; and a nephew, Dalin Spencer.
Ramiro leaves behind a large legacy of loved ones to carry on his memories.
