Christopher Ramirez passed away suddenly on November 18. He was 35 years old.
A marine industry veteran, Ramirez started his career at West Marine and worked for the retailer for 12 years, obtaining the title of district manager. He joined Garmin two years ago as a regional sales manager.
“The entire team is devastated at the loss of Chris,” Garmin’s director of marine sales Dave Dunn told Trade Only Today. “He was kind, caring and had an infectious personality that drew everyone to him. He dedicated his life’s work to the marine industry and often said he had the best job in the world. Chris was a great Garmin ambassador, a phenomenal cook and an even better friend. Although he will be greatly missed his memory will continue to inspire us always.”
