Luis Rego, 76, of Winnipeg, Man., passed away peacefully, with family by his side, on Friday, Sept. 7, 2018 at the Victoria General Hospital in Winnipeg.

Luis is survived by his wife of 50 years, Maria; their two boys, Manny (Michelle) and Johnny (Tamara); grandchildren, Brody, Ethan, Boudy, and Jaxon; brother, Joe of Winnipeg, Man.; other siblings in Portugal and Venezuela; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He also is survived by his in-laws, Herman (Verlaine), Tony (Lori), Joe (Pam), Angie (John), and Denis (Shannon) and their families.

Luis was a very humble man but also a very proud man. He loved nothing more than being around his children and grandchildren sharing laughs and telling stories.

Luis came to Canada at the age of 17 quietly, ready to embark on a new journey in his life. In that same quiet fashion, Luis now has started another journey, which is exactly what he would have wanted.

In the honour of keeping his wishes, no memorial service will be held.
