Ramos got a stroke and died tragically 2 days ago. can’t still believe the news of his sudden death .
Ramos motivated many people to return to C64 computer scene after many years of absence and was a great person . RIP Ramos
from a post written by Pece on 17/08.2015:
I’v got the sad news the day he died from his close friend. I’m devastated since then. He was only 39 years old. Can’t believe it! Ramos invited me to join Samar group in 2012. I met him two times in person and had many conversations via phone or Skype. He was so motivating and inspiring, so nice. If it wasn’t for him, some tunes would have never been done or released. It was true for me. I can assure you that his passion for C64 was so great that it could put anybody to shame. He talked about old chiptunes and other productions with such passion like they were made just yesterday and about fresh ones “impressing, and it’s only 1 MHz”. Ramos always pushed boundaries, wanted to release 2SID, 3SID collections. I had the impression that he rarely rested. Or else how did he manage to do so much after 8.00-16.00 job? Writing articles, editing “C&A Games” magazine, publishing books, coordinating Samar group, working for Museum of History of Computers and Informatics, talking with people for hours and hours. He planned to coordinate the making of sequel of great Polish game “Knoorkie”. We talked about it on the phone few months ago. Damn, two weeks ago he asked me if I could make some music for demo for party in Cracow… I have just composed a song specially for him and it will be a part of my upcoming electronic album – that’s all I can do now…

you can read about Ramos/Samar P. on CSDB page:
I never knew him personally, but I’ve seen the ripples he caused in the demoscene by creating Samar. Such beautiful ripples they are. His passion and devotion to the 64 should always be remembered. RIP
What a loss. I hardly knew Ramos, just from occasional e-mailing, seemed a nice and straight-forward guy.
Thanks you very much, Alex, for doing this website. It’s a very important thing to do.
