GUYMON, Okla. — A Guymon family needs help with funeral expenses after their 2-year-old son drowned at a Liberal water park Sunday evening.
Giovanny Ramirez, 2, of Guymon, is the son of Daniel and Latisha Ramirez. He passed away after being found in three-feet of water at Liberal’s Adventure Bay Family Water Park.
The Ramirez family had just moved to Guymon the week before the accident and are currently living with their son-in-law. They moved to town to work at a local facility but had not started working. As a result, the family has no resources to pay for even a modest funeral.
An account has been established at Guymon’s Bank of the Panhandle for anyone who wishes to help this family in their time of need. Those interested in helping can stop by the bank and make a donation to the Giovanny Ramirez Fund.
“The family is in dire need of funds to cover the funeral expense and needs the money in the next few days to have a funeral this week,” said Guymon’s Chief of Police Eddie Adamson who is coordinating efforts. “This family is doing all they can, and their son-in-law is even trying to sell his car so the family is truly doing everything they can but are in need of some help.”
Adamson has also made a Paypal account where donations will be transferred to the account at the Bank of the Panhandle. Residents can donate by visiting paypal.com and entering the account e-mail address of

“Please keep this family in your prayers as they are dealing with the loss of this little child,” Adamson added.
