Obituary for Enrique “Rick” Luna, Sr.

Rick left us suddenly on Sunday, March 17, 2019. Rick was born February 29, 1952 in Ionia, Michigan to Floyd R. and Virginia H. (Hernandez) Luna. Rick was a lifelong Portland resident. On May 22, 1971, he married his high school sweetheart, Cheryl A. Ryerson.

Rick is survived by their children, Enrique “Rick” (Theresa) Luna, Jr., Christopher Luna, Andrea (Luke) Simon, Stephanie (Poon) Hinmon; grandchildren, Xavier and Elliot Luna, McKayla Darling, Natalia Gowdy-Luna (Oscar), Kyler and Cade Simon, Izacc, Miguel, and Emmanuel Hinmon; mother, Virginia H. Luna; siblings, Ernest (Pam), Irene, Diana, and Sophia; along with his Ryerson in-laws. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Cheryl; father, Floyd; and in-laws, Beverly and Richard Ryerson.

Rick was retired from TRW. He loved helping out with his grandkids and attended all of their sporting and school events. Rick enjoyed hanging out with his lifelong friends…there are so many stories. Rick also loved riding motorcycles and owned Triumphs and a prized Harley Davidson in his lifetime. Rick spent a lot of time caring for his mother and running her and ALL of the family kids to appointments.

Our father, son, grandfather, brother, uncle, and great-uncle will be dearly missed.
