Francisco "Frankie" Catubig Ramos, 87, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend passed away on Friday, June 10, 2011 at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Francisco was born in Urbiztondo, Pangasinan, Philippines on January 1, 1924 to Juana and Felixberto Ramos. On June 29, 1946 Francisco enlisted in the military and served in the U.S. Navy and also the U.S. Air Force. He was stationed in the Philippines, Japan, Italy and the United States. After retiring from the military, Francisco eventually settled in Juneau, Alaska. He and his wife Evelyn raised their children while he worked in the U.S. Post Office, cooked at the Baranof Hotel, and was a chef at the Prospector Hotel. In the early '80's, Francisco and his wife acquired the popular City Café, which was a thriving family business until it was sold prior to his retirement to Las Vegas, Nevada.

Francisco was generous to his friends and relatives. He lived a life full of love, adventure, and hard work. He will be missed by all who knew him. Francisco is survived by his wife, Evelyn; their four children, daughter Marlyn (Ed) Carrillo of Juneau, AK; sons, Jimmy (Maria Rosell) of Las Vegas, NV, Cisco (Robyn) of Juneau, Herminio of Ketchikan; adopted daughter Joanne; six grandchildren, Edmar, Edric, Jenna, Julian, Talyn, and Treyson; siblings, Domingo of Palmdale, CA, Demetria of Kodiak, AK, Vicente of Dagupan, Philippines, Felicidad Marasigan of Kodiak, AK and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his sister Pacencia Garcia and brothers Cosme and Adolfo Ramos. Memorial prayers will be said in July on the 40th Day Anniversary of Francisco's death in Juneau and Kodiak. A family memorial will be held on Francisco's 88th birthday, January 1, 2012 in Las Vegas, NV.
