Nicholas R. Ramirez, age 21 of Albert Lea, Minnesota, was found on September 16, 2019, after an accidental drowning in Albert Lea.
Nick was born on November 20, 1997, at Naeve Hospital in Albert Lea to parents Anthony Ramirez and Michelle Buchholz. He enjoyed growing up on the family farms in Lydia and Le Center, Minnesota surrounded by his chickens, goats, cats and dogs.
He loved being in the outdoors while discovering and learning about nature. His favorite past times were camping, hiking, biking, and bonfires. When he wasn't outside he enjoyed reading, hanging out with his beloved turtle, and playing on his Xbox. If Nick was interested in a subject, he would thoroughly research it, and truly enjoyed sharing his new-found knowledge with his friends and family.
Nick enjoyed living in different cities in Minnesota including Waseca, the Mankato area and then in 2012 returned to Albert Lea. Since then, he enjoyed many adventures with his dad, Anthony.
Nick is survived by father, Anthony Ramirez of Albert Lea; mother, Michelle Buchholz (Robby Hiniker) of North Mankato; grandmother, Rita Johnson of Albert Lea; brothers, Anthony Ramirez of Shakopee; Zachary Ince (Michaela Meffert) of Arlington and Jack Kohout of North Mankato; sister Leah Ramirez of North Mankato; nephew, Alexander Ince and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Nicholas is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Stan Johnson and Richard Ramirez; grandparents Earl and Lois Buchholz; uncle, David Ramirez and cousin Ron Gonzales, Jr.
Nicholas is and was loved by family and friends and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
