It is with profound sadness that the family of Luis Angel Moyeno announces his passing on Saturday, February 10, 2018, at the age of 70 years. Luis will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 43 years, Nelys Moyeno (nee Ramos) and his children and their spouses, Rosemarie and Nestor Matos and Luis George and Evelyn Moyeno. Luis will also be fondly remembered by his six grandchildren, Victoria, Elizabeth and Luis Moyeno and Alexandra, Arianna and Sebastian Matos, and by his three siblings and their spouses, Manuela and Ovidio Badillo, Iris and Jesus Badillo, and Wilfredo and Ana Moyeno. He survived by his mother-in-law (Rosa Lidia Aleman Ramos), his aunt (Carmen Maria Serrano), his three uncles (Juan Jose, Pedro Jose and Bienvenido Serrano), numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and their spouses and children. Luis was predeceased by his parents Rogelio and Emerita Moyeno.


Luis Angel Moyeno was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. He and his family moved to Hoboken, New Jersey when he was nine years old. Luis attended A.J. Demarest School and William L. Dickinson High School. In 1966, Luis was drafted into the United States Army where he proudly served two years active duty and four years on reserve before receiving an honorable discharge in 1972. Immediately following, Luis earned his certification in Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heating Technology from Lincoln Technical Institute. He was employed as a mail handler for the United States Postal Service in Secaucus, New Jersey for a total of 36 years prior to retiring in 2007.


Luis and his wife, Nelys, married in 1974 and raised their two children in Hoboken. He was an avid Yankees and Giants fan and enjoyed coaching little league for the St. Joseph’s Holy Name Juniors team in the late 1980’s. Later, he was well known for rooting on every sports team his son and grandchildren played for. He rarely missed a practice or a game. Luis was proud to have served on the Hoboken Planning Board during the Patrick Pasculli administration. He was also a proud Life Member of Vietnam Veterans of America. Words cannot express how dearly he will be missed by his surviving family and friends.


Visitation for Luis will be held on Tuesday, February 13th, from 4PM to 8Pm at the Failla-McKnight Memorial Home, 533 Willow Avenue, Hoboken. There will be no visitation prior to the funeral mass on Wednesday. The Funeral Mass will be on Wednesday, February 14th at St. Francis RC Church, 308 Jefferson Street, Hoboken at 10AM.  In lieu of flowers the family requests that those who so desire make a memorial donation in his name to the American Cancer Society at
