Ramon O. Lucero, age 81, passed away on Friday (February 10, 2017) at his home surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's. Born in Arabela, NM to Roger and Maria Lucero, Ray met and married his wife, Dolores Alvarado, of 63 years in Roswell, NM. Soon after they moved to Placerville, California where they raised their family and built a successful construction business.

Ray spent his life devoted to his family, coaching little league, raising horses, and playing cards with his friends. Wherever Ray went he either had a friend waiting or made one when he arrived. He spent the majority of his retirement in Roswell, NM fulfilling his dream of breeding and racing quarter horses.

Ray was extremely loving and proud of his four daughters and two sons: Sadie Webb and partner John, of Sacramento, Rita Borgman and husband Craig of Sacramento, Roman Lucero and wife Lori of Show Low, AZ, Kim Lucero of Sacramento, Helen Prater and husband David of San Diego, and Frank Lucero and partner Steve of Newport Beach. He is also survived by his 10 grandkids, 18 great grandkids - with one on the way!

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 22 from 4 till 7 pm for the viewing, Chapel of the Pines, 2855 Cold Springs Rd, Placerville, CA. Funeral Services will be Thursday, February 23; Rosary, 10:30 AM, mass at 11:00 AM, at St. Patrick's Church, 3109 Sacramento St, Placerville, CA. Flowers can be sent to Chapel of the Pines.
