Louis Donald Romo, age 72, was born in French Camp on February 17, 1948, and passed away on February 2, 2021 at Tracy Sutter Hospital following a short illness.
Louie attended Tracy schools and graduated from Tracy High School in 1966. He went on to further pursue his education at Delta College in Stockton, but it was cut short when he was involved in a serious motorcycle accident that left him partially disabled.
He moved to Stockton and worked for Merwood Inc and Raymond Agriculture for many years, and lived a block away from his local hangout, The Graduate. Upon retirement, he moved back to Tracy to care for his elderly parents, Charles and Guadalupe Romo. Both have preceded him in death.
Louie loved fishing and camping with family at Pinecrest and Lake Tahoe, and was never one to miss out on attending family get-togethers. He was a NASCAR enthusiast and enjoyed watching golf and rooting on the 49ers and Giants. Many Super Bowl parties, BBQs and holiday gatherings were hosted at his home.
As a member of Tracy Wildlife Association, he enjoyed camping in his trailer at Oak Island north of Tracy. He was currently the Vice President of the South Side Community Organization of Tracy and was actively involved with the Guadalupe Center.
His older brothers, Gerald “Jerry” Romo and David Romo, have preceded him in death. He is survived by his younger sister, Gloria Walth and her husband Hank, and sister-in-laws Nola (Jerry) Romo and Diana (David) Romo. Also surviving are nephews Eric and Nick Romo, Ryan and Tim Walth, and niece Elena Whetstone, and their families.
