Fallen Warrior Ramon Montes

Ramon was raised by his father, Roberto, who was a horse trainer - thus one of Ramon's first loves was horses.

A WWII Veteran, who saw heavy combat, he recalled the experiences of the war throughout his life. In his last days, our father saw the magic of horses in his dreams to give him comfort. As his own father would say to him as a child, "Montate!": "Mount!"; and, so he did.

In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that you send donations to:
