JUDGE RAMIRO VELIZ JR.
June 15, 1960 – March 18, 2022
Judge Ramiro Veliz Jr., 61 joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Friday, March 18, 2022.
He was born on June 15, 1960 to Elena Veliz and Ramiro Veliz Sr. He was a devoted husband, father, brother and grandfather. He was happily married to Maria Amelia Veliz, had three sons and nine grandchildren.
His desire to serve the community he grew up in, gave him the determination to always work hard to achieve his dreams. He proudly began by serving his community at the Webb County Sheriff's Department. Then was elected as Justice of the Peace Pct 2, in which he served for three terms. His passion was spending time at his ranch alongside his family. The outdoors is where he felt at home feeding his animals and taking care of his land. He instilled that same passion to his sons as well as to his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and had the pleasure of being close to him, but his legacy will live on strong by his beloved family.
