Ramon R. Hernandez


On December 8th, 2022, the most amazing husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend was called home by his heavenly family.

Ramon Hernandez was born in Carrizo Springs, TX on January 19th, 1947 to his parents, Olivia and Ramon. In 1967, he had laid eyes on his future wife, Alicia, for the first time from across the street by the Court Motel in Parma, Idaho. She was carrying an 8-pack of RC Cola when he went over to meet her. He introduced himself to her and the rest is history.

Over the years, Ramon and his wife, Alicia, indulged in perfecting Mexican cuisines, such as Mexican rice, Caldo, Tamales, Menudo, among many others.

He enjoyed spending majority of his time with family and having cook outs. He loved music just as much as traveling, but only by driving. Speaking of driving, he also loved cars. He was able to purchase his dream car, a Corvette, just a few years back. He shared this love & passion with his children as well as his grandchildren.

Through his hard work, sacrifice, and most importantly, love, he was able to provide a better life for his children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren. He will be very deeply missed; however, we know that he is in a better place with God.

He is survived by his lovely, beautiful wife of 54 years, Alicia Hernandez; his wonderful children, John of Emerado, ND, Mike (Claudia) of Grafton, ND, Linda of Jena, LA, Frank of Fargo, ND, and Angie (Chris) Lee of Grafton, ND; his grandchildren, Jazmyn (Devin) Curry, Zak Hernandez, Alicia Hernandez, Celica Gonzalez, Isiah Hernandez, Lexi Hernandez, Brianna Gonzalez, Jesly Hernandez; and great-grandchildren, Sean, Huey, Vanessa, and Selena.

He is preceded in death by his mother Olivia, father Ramon, brother Ismael, sister Yolanda, and grandson Josh.

Mass of Christian Burial will be Monday, December 12, 2022 at 2:00 PM at the St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church of Grafton. Visitation will be Sunday from 3-5 PM with a prayer service at 5:00 PM at the Tollefson Funeral Home of Grafton. Friends may also call at the church for one hour prior to the service.
