In memory of a Highland Park bus boy

The Boulevard Sentinel notes that the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council honored the memory of Enrique Ramirez, who died from a stabbing at Garvanza Park in May, with a moment of silence. Ramirez, a bus boy at Carrows on York Boulevard, was a familiar face to many of the council members who attend committee meetings at the Highland Park restaurant.

"He was described as an outgoing, friendly person by those that knew him from his work at Carrow's on York Bl. He was very fast when bussing tables, learned English rapidly and eventually advanced to taking beverage orders. He was known for helping the wait staff when things got really busy. Community members say it seems like a bad dream now that he is missing from there. They can make no sense of something like this happening to him."

Ramirez' remains were flown to Mexico following a funeral service at St. Ignatius Church.

  1. My family had gone in to Carrow's recently a few times and realized we did'nt see Enrique anymore. He was always very friendly and nice and always had a smile on his face. We just happened to over hear what happend to him and were very shocked and sad to hear that he was murdered. It's very sad and unbelieveable.
