Louis "Puppy" B. Molina Jr., 74, of Melbourne, Fla., passed away peacefully at home with his loving family by his side, on Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013.

He was born on Nov. 6, 1938, in Key West, Fla.

At an early age he worked at Turtle Kraals for a short time, followed by working as a Key West police officer for two years, then a commercial fisherman for six years. He finally found his passion as a carpenter and worked for Monroe County School Board until his retirement. Upon retirement, he refocused his passion into his love of antique cars. Puppy was also known to keep people laughing with his funny sayings.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Florence and Louis Sr.; and sisters June Gardner and Brenda McCain. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Bernice "Bunny" A. Molina; three sons, Louis III (Sandra), Tony and Lee Sr. (Nancy); brother Wayne; 10 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

As per his wishes, there will not be a memorial service. Therefore, the family will celebrate his life privately. He will be greatly missed, always on our minds and forever in our hearts.
