Mr. Lou was that special kind of neighbor that every neighborhood needs. He always smiled and waved whenever I would see him. Just a very nice and gentle man, who asked for nothing and deserved everything. He will be greatly missed.

My favorite Memory with Uncle Lou was sitting and listening to him tell me stories about my grandfather! I was never able to meet my grandpa Ron but Lou always made sure I knew how great of a football player he was and how much they loved the bears! Lou will be missed always thanks for the memories uncle Lou !

Lou, (Mr. Lou as I called him), was a wonderful neighbor to my family and I. He would always say hello and talk with me whenever I rode my bike or walked our dog in the neighborhood. My favorite memory of Lou was when I visited with him while (Mrs.) Elaine was grocery shopping. I enjoyed asking him lots of questions and hearing about his life. He will be greatly missed💙

Love, Rachel Pruett
