Luis was an avid sportsman who participated in sports throughout his life. Luis enlisted in the US Army in 1946, and the US Marine Corps in 1948, which became his great love. While serving his country during the Vietnam War, his exposure to Agent Orange was his last battle to be fought here at home. After retiring from the Marine Corps in 1971, he was employed by the Board of Public Utilities in Kansas City, KS, and graduated with honors from KCKS College and St. Mary's University in Lawrence, KS, with a bachelor's degree of science. He retired in 1992 as an Assistant Purchasing Agent from the Board of Public Utilities. He was preceded in death by his parents Luis M. Sr. and Lucy O.

He was also involved with the Order of Eastern Star Sincerity 295 Worthy Patron, commandant of Larry Oppenheimer Marine Corps Detachment at the present time. After his retirement he devoted his time to his grandsons. Luis leaves many friends and loved ones who made his life such a joy. He believed deeply in God and country, and his greatest wish was to be remembered as one of The Few, The Proud, The Marines. Luis was also very proud of his family. The family wishes to express their sincere thanks to the care provided by the VA Hospital and staff of KC Hospice, Sister Servants of Mary, Marine Corps League's of KS and MO, faithful members of Blessed Sacrament Church and St. Pius X of Mission, SMMC surgery department and members of the community of Mission.
