Luis is survived by his sister Eva and his two brothers John and Rui. Luis was a devoted uncle to Paul, Chris, Evan, Jon Paul and Natalia. Although he was born in Azores – Portugal, he grew up in Santa Clara, California. As an adolescent and teenager, Luis spent countless conditioning hours on the football field. He was an exceptional athlete, excelling in football and running track. After he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering and Architecture from San Jose State University, Luis made his career as a successful engineer and Director of Construction for multiple restaurant groups such as Ruth Chris, Mimi’s Café, Claim Jumper, and Black Angus. He was an avid reader and always wanted to educate himself in all different subject areas.  While living in Southern California, he loved spending time at the ocean and prided himself in the beautiful home that he built San Clemente. Intimate services will be held for immediate family only. A celebration of life will be scheduled for a later date.

    May the angels lead you into paradise. Luis was an extraordinary athlete and had the best attitude when we lost and was often the hero of the games we won. You just don’t know the day or the hour. Please be assured of my prayers for Luis and his family. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him.
