Arthur "Art" Ramirez

October 23, 1945 — March 1, 2022

Art Ramirez, age 76, of Brazoria, TX passed away on March 1, 2022. Art was born on October 23, 1945, to Guadalupe and Pilar Ramirez in New Gulf, Texas. After graduating from Boling High School, he attended The University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in math in 1968. He taught and coached at Flatonia High School for two years before he went to work for Dow Chemical and settled in Brazoria. He worked at Dow for thirty-four years and retired in 2004. After retirement, he helped his wife build the family business until his second retirement. He was married to Rosa (Garza) and was the father to Oliver, Omar, and Paula.

Art was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend. He volunteered for numerous nonprofit organizations over his life. He enjoyed traveling, especially on his motorcycle, and was always working on a project. He was also an avid dog lover and adopted many dogs from local shelters. His legacy will live on through his many stories and his community service.
