    A favorite Brother, he was always there for me and my family. With love and caring, he brought much happiness to me and family. Our home in Hawaii is a direct result of his caring nature. His selection of our home fit us perfectly. May his soul rest in Peace with the Lord.

No matter what time of year… “Mele Kalikimaka” & “Mahalo”!!! Always coming over with a bag of lemons, grapefruits & oranges from your trees. We miss & love you always!!!

    Whenever Uncle Louis was around everyone was sure to know it. His personality was one-of-a-kind and his laughter and happiness was contagious. Our love and condolences go out to Aunt Rosa, Aunt Virginia, his children and their families. We love you Uncle Louis! Danielle Cruz and family & Gloria Cruz-Downard and family.

  8. Louis Anthony Almendarez III says:

    My memories of Grandpa Louie are of his huge personality and his smile and laughter. I have become estranged from the majority of my family for various reasons but always kept track of where grandpa was. When I heard the news I became deeply sad. This is only strange due to the very long gap in our relationship but there is something to be said for simply being “connected” to someone. I love you grandpa. I share your name and your features and will share my memories of you with my children as well. Rest in gods light grandpa.
    Little louie
