Biography

“Anything is possible.” That is what Luis Gilberto ANGULO believed about life. He was a creative man, a perpetual inventor, who seemed to be able to find a solution for any difficulty confronting him. He had faith in his ability to find those solutions. Luis thoroughly enjoyed understanding how things worked. He possessed an inquisitive, confident, and rational nature matched with a versatile and agile mind. Luis was a person who believed that he could achieve whatever he set out to do.

His parents were Teresa Gonzalez-Angulo and Francisco Angulo. Luis was raised in Los Angeles, California. He showed his ingenuity even as a child. When he was confronted with a problem, Luis could develop an imaginative solution, and he derived satisfaction from knowing he had that ability.

This same talent for finding solutions had a positive bearing on Luis's family relationships. Luis was raised with one sibling. He had one younger sister named Alicia. When a difficult situation or dilemma arose within the family, Luis was always there to help figure out a solution for making things work.

As a young boy, Luis could be found building and inventing new and different things. He was curious, resourceful and interested in anything original. Luis took part in all sports, but found his passion in football. He was a Boy Scout for the city of South Gate. In his spare time he liked to play outside, and ride his bike.

Endowed with an appetite for knowing how his world worked, Luis enjoyed school, especially when the learning experience involved dissecting and probing the unknown. Luis was adept at scrutinizing different possibilities and designing innovative solutions. He graduated from South Gate High School in 1986. He enjoyed some courses more than others, having favorite classes and teachers such as Biology and history. He was very proud of making it to the All-Eastern League for 1985.

Because he was a quick thinker and adept at picking up on new things, Luis performed well in college. He was always on a quest for knowledge and he relished the experience. Theories intrigued him, and he was good at solving complex problems. He always wanted to understand rather than judge. He was pursuing a degree in history at Chico State. He was fascinated by history and biology. He loved being a part of the football team at Chico State.

Luis was socially resourceful, an expressive person who was willing to try new things. These qualities drew a lively circle of friends around him. Always interested in his friends’ activities and interests, Luis was uncritical of his acquaintances. He was sought after by people who recognized that he was generous with his time and energy, and these same friends found Luis to be very stimulating company. Luis's humor and curiosity were contagious for those around him. While growing up, Luis had many friends, but his best friend would be his future wife Patricia Rivas. Later in life, he became friends with everyone and anyone that brought positivity into his life.

On July 14, 1990 Luis exchanged wedding vows with Patricia Rivas at St. Helen's Church of South Gate, California. Luis was adept at devising original and creative ways to enhance and improve the marriage partnership. Luis was seldom a critical person, but rather the one who was able to bring out the best in others. Luis was an entertaining conversationalist who was quick to respond to his spouse’s needs. He was a vibrant personality and he enjoyed verbally sparring with Patricia. In fact, those who knew him often remarked that Luis loved to argue for argument’s sake. He was very perceptive in recognizing others’ feelings, especially regarding Patricia's.

Luis's remarkable talent for being inventive influenced his relationship with his children. He would create original, clever and fun games for his kids and had a knack for finding ways to make everyday events, even chores, enjoyable to them. Luis was blessed with three children, two sons, Antonio, and Gabriel, and one daughter, Frances. Someone who was quick to laugh, Luis found it easy to spend lots of time with his children, but he was never overbearing or guilty of pushing himself on them.

As a born inventor, Luis was definitely in his element in his work place. He could easily create new and innovative systems, and incorporate those changes to bring a fresh approach to any work situation. Luis was a focused worker with a strong drive for achievement. He could assess all of the options before him and, using his analytical skills, could comfortably find answers that no one else had even considered. His personal initiative inspired those around him. Luis was always good at getting a project started and then, at the appropriate time, handing it on to a colleague. His primary occupation was Director of Assets. He was employed for 8 years by Harbor Rail Services. Luis always made an effort to be a team player, doing what needed was necessary in order to get the job done.

Luis's passion for finding a better way to do things was often an end in itself for him. In fact, that interest by itself became something of a hobby for this perpetual problem solver. Since Luis was always searching for new and unusual activities, he developed many interests and leisure pursuits. Some of the things he became an “expert” in might come as a surprise to those who knew him, but most friends and family understood that Luis simply couldn’t be limited to just a few activities or ideas. His favorite pursuits were traveling, fishing, coaching, and spending quality time with his family.

Luis's calm demeanor and eternally positive outlook served him well in sports. In high school, Luis played football and was on the track team. In his college years, Luis continued to stay active by playing football for the university. Recreational sports included football, where he was an owner, manager, coach, and player for the Southern California Diablos. Luis was also something of a sports fan and enjoyed following his favorite events whenever he got the opportunity. On any given Sunday during football season, you could find him watching his beloved Rams play, he was fortunate enough to be able to watch them play live on Sundays when the team returned to Los Angeles.

Having the opportunity to visit and explore a new place always intrigued Luis. Traveling and going away on vacations offered yet another opportunity for Luis to expand his ever-growing inventory of knowledge. He loved to just pick up and go whether it was a 2 hour drive or a 12 hour drive. He loved to be out with family showing them the world whenever he could.

Luis was a lover of animals and cherished his pets. One of Luis's favorites was his periquito, his cats, Wallace, Clark, and Oliver, and his beloved dogs, Nala, Dude, and Butkus.

Luis passed away on June 27, 2020 at his home in Norwalk, California. His life was abruptly taken by a massive heart attack. He is survived by his wife Patricia; his children Antonio, Frances, and Gabriel, and his sister Alicia, and his Parents Francisco and Teresa. Services were held at his home in Norwalk, California. Luis was cremated and remained at home with his family in Norwalk, California.

During his lifetime, nothing appeared impossible to Luis. He met the words “it can’t be done” with the enthusiastic challenge of a “wanna bet” attitude. Luis was able to recognize the possibilities a new idea held, even when those around him could not. For Luis, the traditional way of doing things fell short of his expectations, especially if there were original and untested methods for handling a challenge. For Luis Gilberto ANGULO, the fun of living his life could be found in the challenge.
