He was born in Naranjo de Alajuela Costa Rica. He married Paulina Beita on March 30, 1963. Ramon spent most of life in Costa Rica and lived his life as a man of GOD preaching the bible and missionary work. He brought so much joy to so many people with his stories and the poems he wrote.
We have enjoyed many years together. It was not always roses due to the areas mom and dad took the word of God, but we moved forward. When we arrived in the United States in 1972, our lives got much better and continue spreading the word of God in different churches. In his later years he enjoyed spending time in Costa Rica with mom and continue teaching the word of God in Costa Rica and enjoying time together in the ranch. Now he has been called to glory and we are celebrating his life. We will meet again and rejoice together.
As his daughter Axa, I have had the privilege of enjoying for so many years of my childhood beautiful experiences and memories from Costa Rica times in our ranch in Biolley. Those were amazing times embracing our culture and farm living. We learned to embrace and appreciating nature and the beauty of mountains, rain forest and rivers. I thank God for the precious gift our father was to us. As he continued to serve the Lord a seed for a wonderful and new future was born in his heart. We came to the United States where my dad and mother as supportive roll worked with Pastor Samuel Villareal, pastor of Iglesia Victoria in Hialeah Florida. They were a wonderful team collaborating in every way to minister and share the Word of God. Thank you, God, for the many years I was so blessed to have dad in my life. I owe all my success personal and professional to your invaluable teachings, examples, and life lessons you have brought to my past, present and future. These I will forever be grateful and carry in my heart. I will miss you every day that I am here without you. Words cannot express the void that you have left in my life. I love and miss you forever.....

Ramon and Paulina were ordained by the Presbiterio General of The Assemblies of God to direct a national group of youth. This also included the group of Missionaries y el Departamento Del Concilio Misionero Femenil who Paulina was in charge.

They moved to United States in November 1976. They presently attend Iglesia Elim where they serve God since 2012 with Pastors Adam Maldonado and Avery Maldonado with their wonderful congregation.
