Abelardo Luis Sr., 67, died on Sunday, November 24th while surrounded by family and loved ones. He was born on December 9, 1951 in Tlacolula, Oaxaca, Mexico.
The most important thing to Abelardo was family and he’d spend as much time with them as possible. Abelardo will be remembered for always having a warm smile, singing and dancing at family gatherings, his unwavering faith and always lending a helping hand.
Left to cherish his memory are his three children: Abelardo Jr. Hilda (Alfredo) Sandoval and Josue Luis; grandchildren: Alfredo, Isela and Antonio Sandoval-Luis, and Anahi and Aidee Luis. He is further survived by siblings: Adelina (Guillermo) Ruiz, Efren Luis, Gerardo (Martha) Luis, Luz Maria (Victorino) Luis, Noemi (Abel) Lopez, and will be greatly missed by a host of nieces, nephews, godchildren, and many dear friends. Abelardo was preceded in death by his wife, Asuncion, parents Mario and Leandra, in-laws Esteban and Petra, firstborn daughter Rosa Isela, and brother Israel Luis.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 1100 Erie Street, on Friday, December 6th, 11 a.m. Visitation will be held at the funeral home Thursday evening from 5-8 p.m. and at church on Friday morning from 10-11 a.m. with Mass to follow.
