Christopher Adam Luis, Florence, AL, was born in Orlando, FL on December 15, 1978. He left this world for heaven on September 27, 2021. Chris was a loving father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson, and stepson. He never met a stranger and always helped others facing challenges in their lives. He would give the shirt off his own back to help another person.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents Carlos Bordayo, Sr, and Ramiro and Dolores Loredo, Geronimo Luis, and Clarence Michael.

Christopher is survived by his 5 children, Christopher, Annalia, Dominic, Tony, and Noah; sister Anna Carpenter (Kevin), brother Ramon Flores (Christina), sisters Natasha Torres (Rick), Charissa Garza, Katrina Reynolds, Ashley Reeder (Adam), Kyra Langlois (Lance), Madolyn Jackson (Ronald) and Alex Garza; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Chris proudly served our country for 12 years in the United States Navy serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Stateside he served duty assignments in Maryland, Virginia, Florida, Michigan, and Alabama. After his military service, he worked as a plumber in Michigan.

Chris enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and loved grilling and cooking for large get-togethers on a regular basis. Second only to his love for Jesus, he loved his children more than anything on this earth. He cherished them and talked about them continuously, always helping them learn and grow to be strong, proud children and young adults.

  1. He was a strong guy loving and sweet person I was glad he was part of our family. My dad Jimmy loved him very much. He was like a son to him. I’m sure he is up in heaven sitting and talking with my dad now like always when he was here. RIP

  2. Chris was a father, brother, leader, and most of all a great friend. While serving in the military with Chris I had the opportunity to work with Chris and learn valuable life lessons and create a lasting bond, never the less Chris was always around even if you needed someone to talk to.

    IYAOYAS for ever brother I’ll see you again.

  3. I love you Julie. My heart aches and cannot begin to know your sorrow. You are very special to me. Chris will be with dad now and at peace. No more pain and sickness. He will always be loved and remembered. May the angel of comfort be with you and yours. Sorry I cannot be there physically for you but I am in spirit. God bless my family. RIP Christopher, I love you

  4. You are our sunshine now our reason to go on and share all the memories you left us. It won’t be easy but I know you will be with us watching over us and pushing us to go on. I love you and I will miss you more than you know. RIP until we meet again and we will. Aunt Teresa

  5. Luis my brother I can’t believe that you are gone. You are one great guy I enjoyed each and every second that I got to spend with you while we served together in the navy. I know for a fact you was one special guy always loving always caring and always helping. We had long talks about life and our family you love them babies with everything in you. A great father you was even at a young age. Man I could just keep talking about you with nothing but good words to say. Bro I love you and I’ll surly never forget you. RIP my brother IYAOYAS

  6. When I think of Chris, I see his big smile and wanting to include others in what he was doing. I remember Chris as a six year old, playing Trivia Pursuit with of adults, and doing a pretty good job of holding his own. He did a very good job helping his mom and I decorate Christmas cookies. A little older Chris loved playing Pac Man, and Mario Brothers with his sister, Charissa. The first time I visited Florence, Chris and his family took to the river to go fishing. Chris liked to fish, where his sisters just wanted to play in the stream running next to the river. In his teen years, when I came to visit, Chris would go sleep at one of his buddies house, so that I would have a place to sleep. As an adult Chris would often included others in his plans, be it a cookout, or weekend vacation. Chris loved to cook, I think it was his passion. I sorry that I will not be able to see your great smile, or hear you call me, Miss Sherry, or Aunt Sherry again. Love you

  7. I dd not know Luis but I want to offer my condolences to his family. He seemed like such a wonderful man. God bless you all

  8. I had the chance to meet Chris when I deployed to Kuwait with him in 2010. We were roommates, friends, and eventually I called him my brother.

    He was always the hardest worker around and had a positivety that brought a smile to others. He will be deeply missed.

    RIH brother…until Valhalla
