Hi, my name is Benishir Cardinez. I've created this fundraising on behalf of Eric Higa, to help cover the cost of his father's funeral services.
On Sunday, July 18, 2021, Luis Higa, 82, died unexpectedly at LAX Airport of unknown causes.
Luis was born April 6, 1939, in Peru, the son of Choko Higa. He attended Escuala Basica Santa Beatriz and Gran Unidad Escolar in Peru prior to migrating to the United States of America. He received his college degree here in California as well as a certificate in Medical Technology from Pierce College.
Luis was recognized for his 45 years of service at West Hills Hospital prior to his retirement last year. He was also previously recognized and received the Golden Performer award.
Luis was a busy body. Upon his retirement, he kept himself occupied by taking math courses online and started re-learning the Japanese language. In addition, he started gardening as well. Lastly, he spent most of his time with his loyal pup, Conan.
Luis was preceded by his youngest son, Michael, and his wife, Maria. He is survived by his sons Eric, Hugo, and Mark and his granddaughter, Jasmine. His tireless love and devotion to his loved ones are evident in his final moments.
Luis' sudden death took a hard hit on us. We are asking for assistance to help cover the funeral cost and other miscellaneous expenses.
Eric Higa will be responsible for the funds received.
