Memories Timeline


  1. candleI have so many found memories of such a great happy man it’s so difficult to just pick one. But, if I have to it has to be my first memory. That would be the day they moved in across the street from me. Sue was holding her third bundle of joy, Lauren who was an infant and Lou was driving a Fiat 124 sedan of which he had so much pride in that car. Unfortunately the car hardly ever moved. But he had that contagious smile telling me how good that car was, but in meantime he was commuting back-and-forth to Channels in a Pontiac Tempest or a Lemans who can remember. Life was much simpler back then for both Lou and I jour priorities were family and work. I could never find a better neighbors than Lou and Sue. I will sincerely miss him, and the numerous conversations we had. Until we meet again rest peacefully my friend.

  2. candleOur Hearts are with all of you.
    From Lou’s smile and happy personality to his remembering to post special memories and remembering birthdays and other occasions on Facebook made him part of everyone’s life even those who didn’t see him very often.
    May he rest in peace wrapped in the arms of the angels.

  3. Zio I love you, I love you, I love you! I will miss you always and will remember you forever. You were always so good to our family. The world got a little darker now without your bright light. Rest peacefully and say hi to daddy, Nonno and Nonna for us

  11. Lou was one of the kindest, sweetest and certainly funniest gentlemen I ever met. His heart was always open. I will forever cherish the memories of the times we spent hanging and laughing with Sue and Lou. When I shared his passing with my husband, the first thing he mentioned was his infectious laugh. May that memory sustain all through this difficult time. Sending our love to the family from mine.

  12. I remember Lou as the most loving father and caring person. He was always so genuinely happy when I would bump into him and he always had a smile on his face.
