I knew Lou as a kid when we lived in West Tarentum PA. There was no doubt, back then, that Lou was destined to make his mark in this world. My sincere condolences to Lou's family and friends. A good man gone too soon.

I met Lou when I joined the DECA Board of Directors. He immediately took me under his wing. I really appreciated his friendship. We communicated for many years after he left DECA. I always invited him to my golf foursome at the Fairfax County DECA golf outing. It meant a lot to both of us. He shared with me his collection of golf photos and memorabilia. It was a real treat. He will certainly be missed. Rest is peace my friend!!!
