Obituary

Luis Antonio Nieves, 75 of Bradenton, Florida passed away peacefully at Manatee Memorial Hospital on May 1, 2021. Born in Naranjito, Puerto Rico, to Ignacio and Irma Nieves, Lu is the oldest of seven. He calls the streets of New York home, where he cheered on his beloved Knicks, Yankees and New York Giants, and graduated from Boys High School and Pace University. While his career lead him on a path to business and finance, his passion lives in music and literature, inspiring him to pen his first novel. Lu is a natural born leader and role model, loved and respected by those whose lives he touched. He defended our nation, serving in the United States Army in the Vietnam War. Despite the many honors and accolades, Lu is most proud of his family, which he raised in Leonia, New Jersey. He is survived by his mother, Irma, wife, Lisa Nieves of 50 years, his four daughters, Lisa Mateo, Irma Hebenstreit, Myra Rojas and Rita Tatum, 8 grandchildren and 6 brothers and sisters. A private visitation for family with Military Honors will be held at Baldwin Brothers Funeral & Cremation Society on Friday, May 7th from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. at 3825 E State Rd 64 Suite 300 Bradenton, FL 34208. A service to celebrate his life will be held for family and friends on Saturday, May 22nd at 11:30 am at St. John the Evangelist Church in Leonia. In honor of his love for music, if you would like to make a one-time donation to his favorite independent public radio station, 90.7 WFUV, log onto https://support.wfuv.org/ and write “In memory of Luis Nieves” in the comments section.

    Dear Lisa and family
    Friends are a gift from God. Having known Lu for so many years dating to when we first met at Bankers Trust I can truly say that he was the Angel gifted to me. I will always cherish his friendship. Though we will never again share the sweet taste of the wine here on earth we will certainly meet again too once again raise our goblet. Lu will be missed as part of our family but his memory will always be in our heart. Rest in Peace Lu and may God welcome you with open arms and His Shining Light be Upon You Always. Until we meet again, your friend, Bob Pardo and family.

    I met Lu through my father when I was very young and was always impressed by him. He was a good family man and he was always so kind and patient with our family. He helped us immensely. Even after years of not seeing him he reached out to me for my dads passing recently. I will always respect him and remember him very fondly. May God bless him and his family.

    Thank you for welcoming me into the family with open arms, the many times we sat and watched sports on the tube, one on one conversations about life’s lessons, and treating me like the son you never had. Until we meet again Pops.

    With Respect and admiration,
