GENEVA- Luis "Lou" A. Rivera, 58, passed away on Fri. (July 16, 2021), at home. Friends may call from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Mon. (July 26), at the Palmisano-Mull Funeral Home LLC, 28 Genesee St. Geneva. A funeral service will be held at 12 p.m. in the funeral home. Burial will follow in Glenwood Cemetery. Lou was born on Dec. 17, 1962, in Newark and was a son of Leonilde (Diaz) and the late Ernesto Rivera. Luis was a kind and gentle person who loved spending time with family and friends. He lived for his family. Luis's light may have gone dim, but you can still see his shine when you look into the faces of his children. Luis was a kind man. He was the type of guy who would help anyone else before he helped himself. He has always had a warm embrace and an open heart. His smile lit up the room and his laughter was contagious. Luis would tell jokes for days and was a creative man with an eye for art, he loved to draw. Besides drawing he loved to relax and watch a good movie. He was a simple man who lived for the little things. A picnic at the lake or dinner with friends and family would put him in a happy place. I ask you all today to find this happy place, that's where Luis will be, along with in our hearts and memories. It will burn forever in our hearts and we will pass it on in the stories we tell of him to our families and friends. Luis will be missed and never forgotten. He is survived by his mother, Leonilde Rivera Diaz of Geneva; Chad (Noelia) Bouwens of Clifton Springs, Mike Greene of Geneva, Antonio DiFederico of Geneva, Daniel Rivera of Geneva and Chance Rivera of Waterloo; siblings, Alma (Chris) Lambert of Geneva, Ernesto Rivera-Diaz of Geneva, Hector Rivera of Geneva and Herbert Rivera of Geneva; 9 grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Psalm 23 The Lord is my shepherd. I will always have everything I need. He gives me green pastures to lie in. He leads me by calm pools of water. He restores my strength. He leads me on right paths to show that he is good. Even if I walk through a valley as dark as the grave, I will not be afraid of any danger, because you are with me. Your rod and staff comfort me. You prepared a meal for me in front of my enemies. You welcomed me as an honored guest. My cup is full and spilling over. Your goodness and mercy will be with me all my life, and I will live in the Lord's house a long, long time.
