Louis (Lou) truly was a man who loved God and his family deeply, he was compassionate, always willing to help and offer support where he could. Always! He loved spending time with family, especially his four boys, he cherished every moment spent together. He also loved the outdoors and his dog, Buddy. He was either landscaping, playing with Buddy at the park or fishing. Fishing was really his passion, where he and God could sit in quietness, enjoy the scenery and always catch a lot of fish. Lou was known for his natural ability to be a leader in life: he worked hard and played hard. He coached each child as if they were his own. Lou was a man of few words, but when he spoke, it was deliberate, honest and fair. He lived a life striving to be strong and courageous, soft hearted, humble, kind and with the love of God.
Oh Lou, how truly blessed we were to be part of your life! Thank you for allowing us to be part of your journey! We will love you forever, gone but never forgotten!
