ODESSA Christopher Caleb Ramos, 38, (Chicano/Irish nationality) of Odessa, passed away Monday, June 9, 2014, at Medical Center Hospital. He was born June 10, 1976, in Odessa to Abel T. & Anita (Black) Ramos. He was an oilfield roughneck. |
Caleb danced to the beat of his own drum and that drum beat loudly and with no reservation. His heart always made room for his family and those he called a friend. If you spent even an hour with him, you would return home with a hilarious story to share with others. He loved to joke and play with you, sharing his inner child willfully and openly. He was the instigator, the one who started it first. He somehow got you to do things you probably wouldn't do otherwise. He was outrageously courageous and courageously outrageous. He was a lover, a fighter, a stinker, a friend, a brother, a nephew, a cousin, a son, a father, an uncle and once even a husband. He would make you laugh, make you mad, and then make you laugh while you were mad. We will remember and love him dearly over and over again, never forgetting how he has touched us all. We say goodbye for now Caleb, this is not the end.
He is preceded in death by his mother and sisters, Monica Ramos and Dianne Green. He is survived by his father, Abel Ramos of Odessa; daughters, Sierra Ramos of Odessa and Gia Ramos of Gardendale; sisters, Sofia Ramos of Amarillo, Susan Ramos of Austin and Charlotte Alshire of Graham, TX.
