September 24, 1926 - April 21, 2013

He was born just outside San Antonio in Hutto, Texas and lived in Walnut Creek for almost 50 years before moving to Benicia in 2010.

Rudy is survived by Emma, his wife of 62 years, daughters Sylvia Barata & Nancy (David) Henderson, grandchildren Brandi, Russell, Sean & Chad, and his great grandchildren Dominic and Laylah and his brothers Emilio and Robert Ramirez.
A Celebration of Life with Military Honors will be held 6:00 p.m., Friday, May 10th at the Benicia Veterans Building, 1150 First Street, Benicia.
