To the entire Silva and Martin families : I worked next to Luis at a GM dealership in the early 90's and have been friends ever since. He was as good a person as one could know. He loved his family dearly. He never showed if he had a bad day and laughed more than any person I know. I will miss my fishing and golfing buddy but will think of him every time I go out now.

What a great guy.... What a big heart.... I worked with Luis at OKI Systems as well, side by with him, for several years. He was always fun to be around. I still smile thinking about all the funny, ridiculous, and silly things he would say or do to get a smile out of someone. You could tell that he loved to laugh and make others laugh. That’s Luis! I’m sure his family knows exactly what I’m talking about. I am so very grateful to have known him as a friend. Holly, the girls, and his family were everything to him. That’s the way God built him. God Bless you Luis. You will be missed by many of us my friend.

Aunt Holly, Carmen & Erika. My heart breaks for you and I wish I could take away all the pain. Uncle Louie was such a kind, loving, and generous person with his time, his heart, and love. It eases my mind to know he is in a better place with no pain, or suffering. This time is difficult for us all but know we are a strong family and we each have you in our thoughts and prayers and are here when and if you need us. Take care and much love. Greg
