RAMON FLORES Obituary
RAMON FLORES Ramon "Ray" Arroyos Flores, 74, a resident of Las Vegas for over 50 years, passed away Friday, July 4, 2014. Dad was born March 26, 1940, in Ysleta, Texas, to the late Antonio Magallanes Flores and the late Aurora (nee Arroyos) Flores. Dad was a skilled craftsman and problem solver and could design and make virtually anything he set his mind to. He worked as a truck driver, before being paralyzed in a motorcycle accident in 1984, after which he medically retired. But this did not stop him. He continued to hunt, fish, camp, and even ride a three-wheeled motorcycle (which he personally designed and assembled) for as long as he was physically able. He was an artist and began crafting leather after his accident, becoming a grand champion at the state fair. Even in his 70's, it was just like Dad to completely refurbish and then sell a classic Mustang automobile, with periodic assistance from his beloved son, Paul. Dad never stopped moving, and never stopped smiling even during the hard times, which were many. He was a fighter and a lover of life. When he did stop to rest, he was most commonly found reading his Bible or resting for his next bout of heroics. No TV, thank you very much. Dad was a devoted member of the Teamsters Union, Brothers of the Third Wheel, the Leather Guild and the National Rifle Association. He is survived by his sons, Gabriel (Patrice) Flores of Camarillo, Calif., Eddie (Maria) Ray Flores of Santa Ana, Calif. and Paul (LaFonda) Silviano Flores of Las Vegas; grandchildren, Jessica Marie, Alexandra Mercedes, Joshua and Thomas Edward; great-grandchildren, Natalie, Caleb and Cade; and siblings, Jose Flores, Lupe Rosales and Michael (Diane) Flores. Funeral services will be at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, July 12, at Kraft-Sussman Funeral Services, 3975 S. Durango Drive, Suite 104, Las Vegas, NV 89147. Burial will follow at Memory Gardens Cemetery, 7251 W. Lone Mountain Road, Las Vegas. Dad is going out like he always said he would, with his cowboy boots on! "We love you, Dad. Forever in our hearts, always in our memories and with many prayers to guide your way."
