Obituary of Ramon Pader Rivera
Ramon Pader Rivera passed on Saturday, August 19, 2023 within his beloved home.
Ramon was born in Zambales, Philippines on August 22, 1961. Ramon was a Master Sergeant for twenty years, retiring as an Air Force Veteran. He then continued to work at the Air Force Academy for twenty years as a building inspector.
Ramon loved Colorado, as he had a curious and childlike love for nature. His love for the outdoors brought cherished memories of biking, golfing, skiing, hiking, swimming, fishing, and more with his family and friends. He taught himself piano and guitar. Every evening and every weekend he would fill the house with music, as he sang and played instruments around his family.
Ramon’s love language was acts of service, and everything he ever did was his expression of that. He was known as the “fixer-guy” because if anything was ever broken, he would spend all of his time fixing it without ever being asked. He was talented at architecture and mechanics, and he was also a computer tech before most were. His close family and friends admire how vigilant he was in digital security, how dedicated he was when fixing cars, and how attentive he was in taking good care of his house. He had kept a tool kit and first aid kit with him at all times, as if he was ready at any moment to help someone in need.
Ramon leaves to hold dear his loving memory his wife, Susana Rivera; three children; and legion of siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
