Apolinar (Paul) passed away peacefully on March 12, 2019 with his family at his side.

He was a hard worker and a good father. His love of boxing was only second to his love for his family and God. He opened Munoz Boxing Gym on E.

Paul is survived by his loving daughters, Lori Ramirez and Sandi Brown (Michael), as well as his grandchildren, Ronald Ramirez (Emily), Amy Devlin and great grandchildren, Taylor, Ethan and Avery Ramirez. He is also survived by his beloved sister, Alice Periera as well as many nieces and nephews.

Paul was a good man who was humble and wise. He was a good role model within his community and beyond. He will be truly missed.
