He had hopes and plans for his business which he Named LSI which were the initials to his name. LSI was starting to take off with many jobs to keep him and those closest to him busy. Lorenzo had several passions that were close to his heart he loved to watch wrestling he love to go out with his friends and his brothers to go dancing. He loved all kinds of music. He loved to make people laugh he loved to tell jokes he wanted to make everyone happy. He had this laugh that was one of a kind we will miss his unique laugh. He loved to cook one of his favorites was to make Pozole. He would make it and want to send it home with his loved ones. But his main passion was for his family his Mother and Father, Brothers and Sister, Nieces and Nephews, his Aunt, Uncles, Sister in laws and brother in law they were his world.
