Obituary for Luis Rosas Mejia

Luis Rosas Mejia, 96, of Overland Park, Kansas passed away on December 21, 2018. He was born August 25, 1922 in Mexico City, Mexico.

He worked as a master carpenter for many years and specialized in carving fine details into woodwork. He was just as much an artist as a craftsman. He loved watching sports with his great grandson, Mark- he especially cheered for teams from California, where he lived for many years. He loved spending time with his family and spoiling his great grandkids with fast food when he took them to and from school. He also liked to stay fit and enjoyed going to the gym. He also loved the many winters he spent with his niece, Patricia, in Arizona.

Luis married Virginia Hernandez Mejia in 1950 and they spent 52 years together until she passed in 2002. After this he moved in with his grandson, Leo, and spent many happy years with his family here in Kansas City.

He was also preceded in death by his parents Miguel Mejia and Eulalia Rosas; his brother Augustin Rosas Mejia; Step Children: Cresencio Moreno (Maria Luisa) and Rosa Issac (Victor Issac- surviving).

He is survived by 14 grandchildren: Miguel Moreno (Hilda), Gregorio Moreno (Lucy), Mario Moreno (Monica), Virginia Ontiveros (Mario), Ana Luisa Villareal (Guadalupe), Valente Moreno (Esperanza), Hortencia Arreola (Alfredo), Fernando Moreno (Lisa Ruskanen), Laura Valadez (Jose, Sr.), Martin Moreno (Christina), Araceli Alvarado (Anthony), Leo Moreno (Maria), Manuela Rizo (Arthur), Cecelia Belmares (Margarito) all of the Greater Kansas City Area; his niece Patricia Valdez Lopez, of Arizona and many great grandchildren, family and friends. He is also survived by a host of other family members in Mexico.

He was dearly loved by his family and he will be greatly missed.
