Raul Ramos

June 14, 1989 — June 10, 2022

WESLACO - Raul Ramos, 32, passed away suddenly due to an automobile accident on Friday, June 10, 2022, in San Benito, Texas. Raul was born on June 14, 1989, to Ricardo and Cristina (Gonzalez) Ramos in Longview, Texas, the youngest of three children. Raul was active, played soccer, and ran track throughout high school; that is when he wasn't injured. Raul had many strains, breaks, and bites while growing up, molding him into a tough-minded adult and making him passionate about helping others with injuries.

Raul earned a Master's Degree from The University of Texas at Tyler, where he also spent time as an athletic trainer. Raul longed to be closer to his roots, he had traveled all over the country as well as Thailand and Mexico, but he did some research and discovered the Rio Grande Valley and decided this is where he wanted to live. Raul was first hired by Brownsville ISD as an athletic trainer, then moved to San Benito ISD, where he has been helping athletes recover from injuries. Raul was a hard worker and thrived as a trainer. He always wanted to improve his knowledge and care, so he was constantly researching and studying new techniques for rehabilitation.

Raul met his soulmate, Alyssa Aguilar, in March of 2019, and they have been inseparable ever since. They were married on December 19, 2021. Raul and Alyssa both had a love for their dogs, Kaycee and Mapache. Raul enjoyed woodworking and used his talent to remodel their home and build wooden lawn ornaments for Christmas decorations. Raul was handy and could fix just about anything around the house. He and Alyssa enjoyed working in their yard, cooking meals at home, watching television, or just cuddling and talking about their days.

Raul never lost touch with his lifelong friends and was close to his family. He was someone who put everyone else's needs before his own and was known to stop in the middle of a project to help others. For example, he and Alyssa volunteered at the Special Olympics, impacting countless lives. Raul was soft-spoken, kind, and affectionate. He worked hard to make a difference in many students' lives and touched many others along the way.

Raul is survived by his wife, Alyssa, parents, Ricardo and Cristina Ramos, brother Jose Ramos (Patsy), sister, Cristy Ramos, father and mother-in-law, Joe and Blanca Aguilar, nieces, Crisselle and Celia Ramos, Lily, Trini, and Ellie Aguilar, best friends, Ed, Jeff, Hector, Heath, and Noah.
