Ramon Herrera

Ramon Herrera, an Atrisco Land Grant heir, passed away on September 7, 2020. He was born on June 21,1927 to Mariano & Quirina Herrera. Ramon was preceded in death by his wife Grace and brothers Jose, Eloy, Mariano, Avelino, Nestor Herrera & sister Lucinda Baca.

He is survived by: daughters Patricia, Geneva, Nancy (Ruben), Donna and son Ramon Jr.(Brenda); grandchildren Adrienne (Jeremy), Christine, Staci (Jeff), Joe (Connie), Leticia (Steve), Ian (Kim), Raymond, Jolene (Dominic); great-grandchildren Ethan, Logan, Dylan, Cianna, Emma, Roslynn; sister Carolina Herrera & many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Ramon peacefully passed away surrounded by his family. He was looking forward to being reunited with his beloved wife Grace who he lost 13 years ago, now they can dance and enjoy being together again.

The word stranger did not exist in Ramon's vocabulary. He loved meeting people where ever he went.

He made many friends by engaging them in conversation. As our family receives condolences from family & friends, the words special & unforgettable are frequently used to describe him. He'd celebrate with others as well as visit the sick & console the bereaved. He believed a short visit or a phone call would help those who were grieving or ill.

He retired from the City of Albuquerque after 33 years of service. After retirement he & Grace joyfully watched their grandchildren. They taught them how to garden & grow chile & other vegetables which they then shared with neighbors & friends. They taught their grandchildren to work hard, share what you have , help others and to have fun. Ramon lived a humble life and touched so many lives with his zest for life.

Special appreciation & gratitude to son-in-law Ruben Abeyta. Ruben was by Ramon's side throughout his last years. They were best buddies. Thank you Ruben for loving and caring for Ramon.

He adored you. Services to be announced .

Dear Herrera Family.
My sincere condolences on Mr. Herrera’s passing. I will always remember him making us laugh. He and my Dad (Ernesto Chavez) would tag team telling chistes and I have found memories of them laughing together at the baseball games. All my best to you all, and God Bless you!

Ramon, you and Grace were the best neighbors we ever had! You were so down to earth and loved to talk and say jokes! We missed you both the day that we moved from the neighborhood and You will be missed but never forgotten. You are now at peace with the lady of your life Grace! God RIP

My heartfelt condolences go out to Ramones children. My fondest memories of Grace and Ramon were there visits to my family in Vallejo. And how gracious he was when we would visit them in Albuquerque.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Love, your cousin,
