Kole Iseri-Ramos, 20, died on August 24, 2019 at his home in Phoenix of an accidental overdose.
He was born in Ontario, Oregon on June 30, 1999. Kole was the beloved son of Kisa Iseri and Rick Ramos. He was the much-anticipated little brother of Jade. He became a big brother when he was 3 and again when he was 6. To Brinn, he was a best friend, and to Cait, he was a fierce protector. Kole gained a stepparent and friend in Bryan Snyder when he was a teenager.
Kole attended Ontario High School and graduated from Shadow Mountain High School in Phoenix. Kole was an athlete growing up, but found more satisfaction in his creative endeavors as he got older. While in high school he participated in FBLA, Taiko, and made amazing videos. He was a self-taught drummer and a daring skater.
After high school, he spent a year becoming an independent adult. He worked for both Home Depot and Amazon in Phoenix where he excelled. At the time of his death, Kole was trying to find his path and looking at returning to school.
Kole’s brain was tricky and he spent a lot of life trying to make sense of existential dread. He was so smart, wildly empathetic, and deeply analytical. His energy filled every room he walked into. Over the past few years, his happiest times were spent skating, drumming, and playing around with his friends and family.
He is survived by his father Rick; mother Kisa; stepparent Bryan; three sisters Jade, Brinn, and Cait; grandfather Jan; grandmothers Maria and Carren; beloved pets Benji, Jimmy, and Daisy; and all his friends. He will be forever missed.
Please join the family as we celebrate Kole’s life. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 31, 2019 at 11:00am at Four Rivers Cultural Center, 676 SW 5th Ave., Ontario, Oregon 97914. Please dress casually. Kole preferred band-tees and ripped jeans.Print Obituary & Condolences
