Ramon “Ray” Sertuche, 91, of Racine, passed away on Thursday, January 6, 2022, at home surrounded by his loving family. He was born on September 26, 1930, in Cotulla, Texas, the son of Enrique Jimenez and Julia Sertuche. Ray worked at Alloy Casting, Inc. for 30 plus years retiring as a foreman and then opened his own business, The Neighborhood Bar, which he ran for 13 years. Ray enjoyed meeting with his regulars and took pride in running his business. Ray was very involved in church and deeply rooted in his faith. He was acknowledged for being the oldest usher at St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church and was elected Vice President of the ushers for two years. Ray was a member of the Holy Name Society and served as an usher advisor for Cristo Rey, a member of the MAPAC organization, and the Spanish Chamber of Commerce. He came from humble beginnings and was a hard worker, but was extremely successful in his life works. He was incredibly proud of his children and their professional achievements. Ray had many passions; he loved to spend time gardening, cooking, and woodworking. Ray was an avid Packer and Brewer fan; he loved to watch games. He was a jack of all trades and could fix anything “his way.” Ray loved to travel abroad but also loved family vacations; each year they would take a family vacation and it was usually at an amusement park; he was an adrenaline junkie. He loved rollercoasters and went parasailing at eighty-five years old demonstrating his spirit of adventure. Ray absolutely loved to watch The Price is Right and even appeared on the game show several times. More than anything, Ray cherished his family and the time they spent together. He loved to celebrate them and enjoyed going Christmas shopping every year to purchase personalized gifts for everyone. Ray will be dearly missed by his children Elizabeth (Dennis) Taylor, Raymond (JoAnn) Sertuche Jr., Donna (Ernest) Layman, and Richard (Eileen) Sertuche. He will be deeply missed by grandchildren Jose, Alicia, Yolanda, Rachel, Adam, and Jacob and great-grandchildren Imani, Ayala, Giana, Brooks, Makenzie, Shiloh, as well as a little one on the way, and sister Connie. He is survived by many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. Ray is predeceased in death by his life partner Velma, parents Enrique and Julia, brother-in-law Travis, sister Giomar “Gigi”, brother Mike, and great-grandson Levi.
