On December 1, 1962, he was united in marriage to Shirley M. Rohr of Racine. Sadly, they had but two years together. She passed away on November 17, 1964. Luis was employed as an assembler by Jacobsen Manufacturing for thirty-five years, retiring in 1986. He enjoyed simple pleasures like classical music, family gatherings, and square dancing in his later years.
He will be dearly missed by his children, Kevin, of Racine and Laura (William) Nelson, of Ripon; his grandchildren, Ana and Connor Nelson, also of Ripon; and other relatives and dear friends. In addition to his wife, Shirley, he was preceded in death by his parents, siblings, and other relatives.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Maresh-Meredith Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, Hwy. 32. Relatives and friends may meet with the family Saturday at the funeral home from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the service.
A special thank you to the staff at Wheaton Franciscan CVI and Hospice for their loving and compassionate care.
