Louis Vincent Roney, passed away on May 17, 2021. Born on April 2, 1965, in San Antonio, to parents Lou and Betty Roney. Louis was a proud graduate of Southwest Texas State University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science.
Louis was an artist, master carpenter and loved nature. He spent countless hours studying his family’s lineage and making detailed books with his findings. In his free time, you could find him hunting fossils, designing and building furniture, writing poetry, listening to music, studying space, tending to his chickens, and playing with his dog Kiowa.
Louis loved his son and his family deeply. Throughout the years, he always had a desire and the hope for a better life. This was evident up to his last days, with the texts and poetry he wrote. Many, outside of his family, loved Louis unconditionally. The messages he received from people who loved and cared for him were too numerous to count. He left this world knowing all of us loved him no matter the circumstances.
