Lou was always a bright spot in my day when we would get together at the flying field at the Martin parking lot or at RCACF. We would discuss flying radio controlled model airplanes and computers. We were so thankful for Lou taking his time to wright the news letter for the Martin club. Lew was loved by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.
