August 14, 1951 - August 08, 2018
Ramon Gamboa, 66, went fully into the presence of his Lord and Savior, Wednesday, August 8, 2018 after a 20-year battle with Parkinson's disease. Ramon was born on August 14, 1951 in Los Mochas, Sinaloa, Mexico to Fernanda Vizcarra. In 1955 he immigrated with his mother to the U.S. and shortly thereafter his mother met and married John Gamboa. Ramon married Sheryl Carter in 1989 and together they raised their children, John and Rachel in Cardiff by the Sea, San Diego, California, then relocated back to Arizona in 1998. Ramon attended ASU and worked in a variety of ways in the hospitality business including being the Director of Catering and Dining at the Del Mar Fairgrounds The Omni San Diego, the Biltmore AZ and the Radisson in Scottsdale AZ. He was blessed to meet people like President Reagan, Bruce Babbitt, John McCain, Bob Dole and Barry Goldwater. He was a man of strong faith, believing in the power and strength of Jesus Christ's love and the beauty and peace that would await him after his passing. Ramon was preceded in death by his adoptive father, John Gamboa, and his mother, Fernanda Vizcarra. He is survived by his wife Sheryl, his two children, John, and Rachel, and his sister, Linda, brother-in-law Mike and their son Michael. A private celebration of Ramon' s life will be held on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 at 3 p.m. at Trinity Church, Mesa.
