Luis Aaron Hernandez

July 22, 1974 — May 2, 2024

Las Vegas

Luis Aaron Hernandez was born on July 22, 1974 in Los Angeles, California and passed away on May 2, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada - just a few months shy of his 50th birthday. Luis was the son of Rebecca T. Llewellyn and Benito “Ben” Juárez.

Luis started his childhood in Los Angeles and Ventura, CA - where he had a role on the tv show Reading Rainbow and was an avid competitive roller skate speed skater, at a local skating rink named Skating Plus. His Dad, Ben, drove Luis around for state competitions and he earned the second place in the State of California speed skating category. Luis practiced baseball with his Dad, Ben, played little league baseball and he ultimately fell in love with the sport. In his early teen years while still living in California, he enjoyed surfing since he lived near the beach.

In the 90s, Luis moved to Las Vegas and met his honorary brother Guy, who together, experienced some of the best and worst times. Luis and Guy also played club baseball together throughout the Las Vegas metropolitan area, in the evenings, and on the weekends. It was during these baseball games and gatherings where Luis met many of his good friends, who became his baseball brothers. When his team won a game, he would not stop talking about his and the team’s amazing hits, pitches, and runs - especially, if he was the one that did them!

In 1995, Luis and his girlfriend at the time, Laura, gave birth to their beautiful daughter Sydney Skyler Rebecca Hernandez. Luis and Sydney had an amazing bond when she was little and she holds many happy memories close to her heart from that time period. Luis was very proud of his daughter and the young adult that she became in life - he was always sharing praises about her when she was not around. He absolutely loved his daughter Sydney.

In 2004, he married his wife Sonia, who had a daughter, Jazmin (Lopez) and they became a blended family. Soon after, Luis and Sonia welcomed their handsome son, Nicolas “Nico” Armando Hernandez, in 2005. Luis and Sonia played on coed baseball teams and met many cool couples who all played baseball together. They enjoyed their baseball families playing days. Luis also taught his son, Nico, how to play baseball, to continue flourishing the inherited baseball playing gene. He immensely loved and adored his son, Nico.

Luis loved his sports teams, which included the Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He loved watching his teams or attending sporting events and if he was watching a game at his home, it often felt that he was in the television set playing the games with the players - he was always so intense and loud! He was also the life of the party!

Luis leaves behind his young adult daughter, Sydney Hernandez (Joe Robledo) and his young adult son, Nicolas Hernandez, his young adult step daughter Jazmin (lopez) and his wife Sonia Hernandez.

He also leaves behind his three young beautiful granddaughters, Makayla Robledo, Lily Robledo and Katalina Robledo - and countless nieces and nephews, which include: Samantha (Tony Rogers), Adrian, Gabrielle, Taylor, Logan, Kennedy, Zachary (Brendalynn Quinones), Kassidy and Zoe “Z”, and his great-nephews, Raylan and Avery, and many others.

Luis leaves behind his older sister, Y. Dannielle Hernandez Romero-Vázquez (Rich Vázquez) and his honorary siblings, Dena Bridges and Guy Fiorello (Desiree Fiorello).

He is preceded in death by his Mother, Becky Llewellyn (Mimi), his step-father, Jerry Llewellyn (Gramps); his older sisters Magdalena “Maggie” Hernandez Nielson and Hope Marie Hernandez Saffa; his Grandmother, Rose Wilkie (Gigi) and his Grandfather, John Hernandez (Pie), Great-Grandmother, Jean Hernandez; Grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Benito P. Juarez; as well as, many aunts and uncles.
