Luis started dialysis in February 2018 and continued until he received a kidney transplant on July 5th, 2020. In June 2018, Luis started working with his wife and his in-laws at Drawdy Construction Co Inc. He enjoyed many perks including hunting trips, trips to Disney World, trips to the Keys, and fishing and camping out at his property in the Prairie. Luis was a graduate from Forest Hill High School in West Palm Beach, FL. Luis played high school baseball on the varsity team as the catcher. Luis also played baseball in college at Palm Beach Community College and Lindsey Wilson in Kentucky. Luis married Ashley in 2011 and they were soulmates since the first all night phone call. They welcomed their son, Luis Jr, in 2015.

Luis enjoyed being at the ball field. He and his wife began to help coach girl’s fastpitch softball after Luis received his Kidney transplant. If Luis wasn’t playing softball, he was coaching softball. He enjoyed everything in the outdoors including spearfishing, saltwater fishing, canal fishing with his son, taking the golf cart for an afternoon ride, camping out in the Prairie and riding the side by side for the weekend. Luis enjoyed being around friends and family all the time. No matter if it was 15 minutes too long or not. Luis was the life of the party. Always had a big smile on his face, never complained, wanted to have fun, eat good food, and make special memories. Luis was the type of person who never met a stranger. Luis was someone who will forever be missed and never forgotten. “There’s heroes & there’s legends. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.” The Sandlot

I’ll never forget growing up and playing baseball with Luis. He had a contagious positivity and was always smiling. We have many great memories, especially at PBCC baseball. And, I’ll never forget the way he pitched. Peace be with Luis and his family.
Sincerely,
Ramon

LUIS....

I'm at loss for words. Really I can't believe this day has come where we are forced to say Rest in Paradise my brother. I can't say nothing more but that you'll be missed & thank you for the many years of friendship... we're talking 96'. I'm so heartbroken 💔 & was trying to figure out how I was going to tell you about my mom when you got out of the hospital... but now, you're with her. I know you fought until the very end. I know you... I know the love you had for your family especially your little boy LJ. Rest assure he is going to be alright! Spitting image of you! Only positive thing I can say is that I'll see you again some day.

I will hold on to our memories. Forever.

Love you. Jackie.

Luis was my best friend, my husband, my sons father, my co-worker, my rock, my safe place, my soul mate. From our first all night phone call to our last final text, he was the man of my dreams. The brown eyed, brown hair, gorgeous smile, laid back attitude, always made me laugh and held me when I cried type of husband. LJ and I are so heart broken that we lost you. You kept our home positive and full of laughter. Even with everything you went thru you always had a smile on your face. You knew how to keep me balanced and taught me to grow up more and more everyday. I pray that you are resting in peace and that you continue to shine a light brighter in us all. You were an amazing man that will forever be in my heart. We miss you Luis. LJ knows that he has the most wonderful, loving, and caring guardian angel looking over him as he continues to grow. I am yours beyond what God may allow us to be. Wait for me in heaven Poh! I will love you forever and for always. Thank you for giving me the strength to continue for LJ, he is so much like you. Please continue to send LJ and I signs that you are still here with us. Rest well our angel. Forever yours, Guajira and Luis Jr.
