Lou Cisco was born to parents, Jessie Mae and Carl Leon Cisco on July 22, 1947. He was raised as a military son with older brother, Danny and younger brother Ray; living in Texas, Mississippi, and eventually settling for life in Tucson, Arizona.

Lou has 4 children. Daughter Tina Louise married to Jeremy Ognall with grandsons Zachary and Ryan; son Robert Scott married to Kathleen Olivarez with granddaughters Kirsten, Emma, and Ella; Stephanie Lynn married to Vern Sandt with grandchildren Joel and Megan, and daughter Hilary Criselda married to Dave Reuter with granddaughter Helena and grandson Calvin.

Lou had a lifetime love of all things related to cars, in both his hobbies and his career. Outside of his two years of service to the United States Army, with his friends in arms; he spent his entire career working for the family run auto dealerships of Holmes and Robert Tuttle and his lifelong friend Jim Click. Lou began his career at Holmes Tuttle Ford in 1965, running parts and continued at Jim Click Ford in the Parts & Service department. As it expanded and grew into the highly successful Tuttle-Click Automotive Group, he worked in Orange County and Tucson; as an Executive Vice President of Parts & Service alongside his devoted friend Dick Pierce. His career in the car business brought him enormous satisfaction and fulfillment.

He established incredible friendships while working in Orange County, with the Irvine Marriott hotel staff and fellow business men; gathering for laughs and trading stories in the lobby. The Irvine Marriott became his home away from home. Lou treasured his stepmother Trudi Cisco and his stepbrother David. He strongly valued the early friendships of Dick Adams and later friendships of Ron, Beto, and Emily; who visited and prayed for him during his rally after a heart attack and stayed by his side as he left this earth.

Lou had a heart of gold, filled with love; for all of us. His greatest love is for his wife, Criselda. He was proudest of his family, that the two of them created from very humble and storied beginnings; to reaching heights that overjoyed them both. For Lou, there was only "His Honey" who could amuse and comfort him; all the days of his life. Their love will live on in the example they set for their relatives and the memories of treasured friends, forever. On Earth. as it is now in Heaven.
