Ramon S. Garcia, known as “Mone”, age 86, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on January 7, 2022, at Baylor Hospital in Waxahachie, Texas. He was born October 7, 1935, in Poth, Texas, located southeast of San Antonio. He married the love of his life, Oralia Lerma, on July 25, 1955, in Mission, Texas, and settled in Ferris, Texas. They shared 66 beautiful years together and had 10 beautiful children. Ramon spent over 50 years being a truck driver and picked cotton as a child at an early age. He enjoyed gambling at the casinos, watching western movies, wearing his cowboy hats and deer hunting with his family and friends. He loved sitting on his front porch smoking his Marlboro Lights and watching who would come and go in the area known as “the hill”.
