Ramon Cervantes, 60, of Versailles, died unexpectedly on Jan. 12, 2017, in Puebla, Mexico, while visiting family and friends. Born Aug. 20, 1956, in Morelos, Mexico, he was the son of Juan Cervantes Apastillado and Manuela Beltran de Cervantes. He graduated from Universidad Autonoma de Puebla in 1980 with a degree in dentistry, and operated a dental practice prior to arriving in the United States. He came to Versailles in 1989 and worked for two years as an assistant to former Gov. A.B. Chandler. Soon after, he formed a successful business, Agricultural Labor Services, for providing workers from Mexico to U.S. farms on temporary visas. He was a member of First Baptist Church in Lexington. Survivors include his wife, Berthina Cervantes; two daughters, Betsy Cervantes (Julio Aguilar), Puebla, Mexico, and Karin Bonifant Companioni (Pablo Companioni), Versailles; a son, Antonio Bonifant (Karina Becerra) of Monterrey, Mexico; and his mother. A celebration of his life will be held in Versailles by the family at a date to be determined.
