Mr. Luistro is the kindest and caring man l have had the pleasure to know. He and his family mean a great deal to me. I remember German Jr. As alter server at St. Pius Catholic Church. Then the family became even more close as German Jr.. came to work at Brink's Inc where I was employed. German an I formed a special bond. I got another farther figure in Mr. Luistro Sr. and another son in German Jr. The Luistros are a special kind of family you are better for knowing in one's lifetime. I love you Mr. German Luistro Sr. Enjoy your new life with your wonderful Wife, till we are together again in our Heavenly Home of Our Father . Love Ronald, Sheila, Eric, Mom,and Kim.

I worked with German at BASF. He was a good engineer, a good man ,and a good friend who loved his family. I always admired his story of coming to America. We are better off by having him. May he rest in peace with his beloved wife, other family members and friends that passed before him.

Cici Mendoza Brunette

Well Tito German. You were always so genuinely happy to see me. Thanks for raising three of the best children who always make me smile and light up whenever I see them. They are my family, and we have been connected since we were little. I know you’re looking down so proud of the people they have become. You’re probably walking hand in hand with Tita Luz and playing Mahjong with my Dad. Love you, Aileen, Junior, and Gretchen! ❤️
