Died: November 5, 2018

Daniel Murray Ramirez, age 78, passed away on November 5, 2018. He was born in Pharr, Texas on November 12, 1939, the son of Ernesto and Rosario Ramirez. After attending West Chicago High School, he served in the United States Air Force as a dental technician.

Dan lived and worked in Kane County most of his life. After his retirement from Swift Foods in St. Charles, he moved to Spring Valley, IL where he enjoyed the slower pace of life.

Dan was known for having a wonderful sense of humor and loved to tell jokes and funny stories. He was a wonderful dad that took a lot pride in his daughter, Traci, and his grandchildren, Daniel and Lydia. They enjoyed his visits to Wisconsin to see them and the tamales he always brought.

Dan was also passionate about horse racing. He loved to figure odds on horses and would often bet, telling us about his winnings.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ernesto and Rosario Ramirez; an older brother, Ernesto Ramirez; and nephew, Ricardo Silva.

Family that will dearly miss him include: his daughter, Tracy Suess (Brian); grandchildren, Daniel and Lydia Stalsberg; sisters, Alice Ramirez, Rosalinda Bowker (Bernie), Minnie Koch (Bill) and Linda Walker (Tim); brother, Louie Ramirez (Sheila); nieces and nephews, Lynn Renner (Dennis), Libby Johnson (Dan), Laurie Gatto (Craig), Nicole Gee (Matt), Erin Warden (Brody), Jeff Ramirez (Suzanne), Mark Ramirez (Dee), Bill Koch (Karen), Jeremy Ramirez (Kelly), Zach Walker; and many great nieces and nephews.

A private service celebrating Dan's life is planned.

Contributions in memory of him may be made to St. Jude's Memorial Hospital, one of his favorite charities.
