Not sure what to say?

Sorry to hear of Luis' passing. My heart goes out to Olivia, his children and family. Good memories of high school days.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day... 2 Timothy 4:7-8

My condolences to the Bautista Family and close friends, especially Olivia. Prayers that God comforts you during this difficult time. The pain never goes away but his memories keep him near. God Bless You, Carol Barajas

Bautista Family & Olivia,

My deepest sympathies and condolences to your Family. First met Louie at the age of 14 at CVHS, always positive, and with a smile on his face. After graduation I flew home on leave from Ft. Bragg N.C., crossed LAX from one terminal to the other to finish my 3,000 mile journey home and to take a hop to P.S. Low & behold sitting there was Louie, he too on leave, had just flown in, a flight of 8,000 miles from Germany, what were the chances of that,...

Luis, you were a great mentor and I learned a lot from you many years ago. You will be missed and always remembered by your friends who once worked at the Indio Station.

I remember my friend Luis from 5-6 grade at Van Buren school. As adults saw him
from time to time, My last encounter was at Target he was buying for grandkids.
Rest In Peace my friend. Gods continued love and peace to his children and grandchildren

He is already missed

You always were a kind hearted soul who would open up your home and heart. I just want to say Thank You for the times we shared. RIP my brother you will continue to live within our hearts. The next time I drive through the desert I will share a beer with you for you are not truly gone you are just in a safer place.

RIP Louie...
