Met Lou through Northridge Little League more than 45 years ago. Bob Mayers, myself and Lou met for breakfast every 3rd Tuesday of the month for more than the last 25 years. Lou and I were both raised in Italian neighborhoods in Brooklyn, N.Y. Shared many stories, including how he met Lucille in church. Needless to say I'll miss him dearly, but the many, many memories will never let me forget him. Rest in peace, Lou, rest in peace.

Uncle Lou was my Godfather. I spent 3 very memorable weeks with him and Aunt Lucille and my cousins Lou, Eric, and Carolann, when I was 8 years old. To this day I remember like it was yesterday. Disneyland, Dodger games, doubleheader at that, I still have the program and souvenirs from the game and just great family time. I got to see what it was like to have a great family and the true value of it. I never forgot it and it helped me to try and create the same for my family. I'm a Dodger fan for life, as Uncle Lou was because of the time I spent with him and his family. He also gave me my first baseball glove, one of the greatest gifts I ever got. But more importantly, I'm a better father because of the time I spent with him and his family. I love you, Uncle Lou. Rest in peace.

I worked for Lou at Advanced Business Systems for 24 years. He hired me when I was 22 years old and greener than green. Throughout the years he helped shape me into the person I am today. Who I am in business and in life have a great deal to do with Lou. Lou always made time to talk. Often he would stop by my office and just sit down and ask how I am doing. He would ask how my wife Karen and daughter Tara were. Whenever our daughter would visit the office with me, Lou always spent some time talking with her, something she enjoyed very much. I have never before, or since, known anybody as optimistic as Lou.
The old expression, the glass is half full didn't apply to Lou. His glass was always full. No matter how bad a day it could have been Lou always looked on the brighter side. That was how he lived life. Lou was my greatest mentor and friend. We will miss him very much.
