A Fremont resident for 57 years, to Louis, Manteca was always home. He worked as a sheet metal fabricator for G.T.E. and then eventually retired. Growing up in Manteca, Louis met the love of his life and together they raised their family. Louis was brought up Catholic and held a special place in his heart for St. Mother Cabrini. He was an honest man and loved his family dearly. Louis had a heart of gold, never judgmental and gave to all he found in need. Sincere and innocent, he loved to bring a smile to his children with his childlike spirit. Louis was a devoted husband an exceptional father and special grandfather. He led his life like a true Shepard of God. He will be remembered and be missed immensely.
