In Memory of Edwin Ramos, 1962 – 2019

Edwin Ramos of Ampersand Art Supply passed away on Sunday, November 10th. Edwin was such an important part of our industry community and a wonderful person. He will be missed dearly. 

We’d like to share a message from Ampersand Art Supply’s Facebook page:

“It is with the heaviest and saddest hearts that we announce that Edwin Ramos, our CFO/COO, passed away on Sunday, November 10th after a courageous five-year battle with cancer. Edwin was born March 18, 1962 in Brooklyn, New York. He is survived by his loving wife of 24 years, Elaine Salazar, an extended family and many heartbroken friends.

For the past 18 years, Edwin has devoted himself tirelessly to this family-owned business and the mission of the company to produce the best painting panels for artists. He was the creative force behind our operations and provided a steady hand to our entire team. We will miss him deeply, but he leaves a great legacy. He showed us humility, to treasure each other and the profound connections we have with one another.”

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that charitable contributions be made in honor of Edwin to: American Association for Cancer Research or Hospice Austin. Read Edwin’s full obituary here.
