Luis retired from Heyser landscaping after working 28 years as a foreman. One of his proudest moments was overseeing the landscape layout of the Baltimore Aquarium. He was a loyal (and sometimes frustrated fan) of the Philadelphia Phillies.
He enjoyed listening to music, singing, playing dominoes, and spending time with his family and numerous friends. Thank you Papa for your unconditional love. We thank our heavenly father for allowing us to be a part of your life.
