Lou possessed a gregarious personality that could seem larger than life and had a wide variety of interests. He possessed a love of history particularly of the WWII era, and enjoyed reading and creative writing in his spare time. Lou enjoyed trips to the casinos and playing cards with longtime friends. It was while spending leisure times with friends that his quick wit and fun loving sense of humor was most evident.
He regularly attended the football, basketball and baseball games and major school functions for the children of his closest friends and family whom he considered his nieces and nephews.
He was immensely proud of his parents. This was particularly evident in his Father’s, Lou, Sr., accomplishments representing the city of Norwalk on the gridiron as well as his Father’s outstanding WWII service record in the United States Army.
Louis is survived by many extended family members and loving friends, he will be deeply missed.
