Conkle Funeral Home, Speedway Chapel - Speedway Obituary

Luis O. Diaz was born on August 5, 1955 in Havana, Cuba to Luis and Delia (Ohms) Diaz, and passed away on the south side of Indianapolis on June 8, 2021.
 
He lived in Havana, Cuba until the age of 7 when his family made their way to Indianapolis, Indiana. After graduating from Southport High School, he went into a long career in banking, where he met his wife, Jackie.
 
Luis was very active in the community of the south side of Indianapolis. He was president of the Perry Township Democrat Club, where he used that opportunity to improve his community.
 
Luis was an avid lover of the outdoors. He spent much of his free time in various parks in Indiana, took multiple paddling trips to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota, and canoeing for weeks at a time in The Everglades.
 
He preferred to be among the trees, with animals and his family. He considered the outdoors his church and would worship regularly.
 
He is survived by his wife, Jackie L. Diaz (Hatcher), 3 children: Mike Beck, Jason Diaz and Mauria Smith, and 8 grandchildren, Haley, Harrison, Alexander, Gabriella, Jaclyn, Braylynn, Benjamin, Colton, and his wonderful dog, Franklin. He is also survived by his sisters Teri Diehl, Luly Diaz, and DeeDee Diaz.
 
We would like to celebrate his life in one of his favorite parks, Eagle Creek, Shelter E (Reeds Place) on June 20, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. There is $5 admission into the park.
 
In lieu of flowers, please register to vote and meditate among the trees sending out peace and love in his name.

So sorry to see that Luis had passed away. I worked with him for years at Bank One and considered him a fantastic coworker and friend. He was always cool, calm and collected and always treated others with patience and respect. I know Luis made a very positive and enduring impact on many people during his lifetime, including my own. Condolences to his family.
