To my Uncle,

There are no words to type that can truly describe the void you’re passing left. Instead, this message will try to honor the life you lived and the impact you made on our life. Growing up, the most excited place to visit was your house in PA. Leaving the city behind for such a short period of time, to reset from the hustle was so important. I can still remember the original house and looking for bugs in the back yard, going for water ice and taking the shortcut through the hole in the back gate. Such small memories stuck with me through the years; how you always had a Mickey watch on and how the house had more Disney themes than the theme park itself or how you would walk by with a seemingly serious face only to stop, smile ear to ear and walk away without saying a word.

Your love for Gin and Tonics, bichon frise's and doing things the old way instead of trying to keep up with technology. A funny memory is that no matter how technology advanced you liked a physical newspaper, you must have found the only newspaper in Starbucks and when we couldn’t find you, there you were sitting in the corner of the coffee shop reading a newspaper, head covered with only your fingers showing. How you could float in the pool for hours and call it the resort. Funny things like that is what I will miss the most. You stuck with traditions and influenced me to do the same. Things like making fresh pasta, I almost forgot how to do it until I saw your posts; I only wish we were able to do that together.

You and Aunt Veda were so welcoming to my wife immediately and became someone that she grew to love like her own family. Your jokes that were often so bad that you couldn’t help but shake your head and laugh. Thank you for being a part of our life and thank you for leaving us with memories that can give us comfort and make us smile until we see you again. We love you <3

I worked with Lou at SMS/Siemens for a number of years. He was a solid dependable team member with a pleasant positive attitude and a terrific personality. He is at peace now. I am smiling remembering the many times we shared together. Thanks Lou for always being there when needed. Jim T.

When I recently read Proverbs 17:17, I thought of my Dear Friend Lou who I have known for 40 years and who has been a True Friend to me in Good Times but also in My times of distress. He cared about me enough to let me know when I was going down the wrong path. Above anything else he Loved Jehovah God and wanted to do what was right according to God's Word the Bible. Lou was a faithful friend to the very end. I look forward to seeing him again soon!

I remember the very first time we meet Lou, he welcomed me and my son’s to the congregation we were visiting with a warm loving smile. He always made eye contact when greeting you with, How are you doing today? He waited for the reply and was always engaging. We always enjoyed his encouraging stories he would share about his life in the truth. We would look for him at our assemblies, so we could sit and talk with him. He was a very caring and loving brother. Our hearts are heavy and deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend. We are looking forward to seeing our dear friend again, we he wakes up, humbly, patiently waiting for that day.

Veda And Michael, I know your hearts are heavy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the both of you. The last time I saw Lou, he gave me a flower to give to Cheryl. He then looked in to my soul, and said , I love you brother. I gave Lou a brotherly hug and Kiss.
What a beautiful brother, and a family that reflected the same kindness.
With much Love to you all.
Jim and Cheryl.

“A true friend shows love at all times & is a brother who is born for times of distress”. PROV. 17:17. This is what Lou was to me & so many others! I can see him in his kitchen w/his big smile, a bottle of red wine nearby, preparing his favorite Italian meal w/Italian music in the background, making sure his guests had what they needed.
My heart is heavy w/grief right now. I miss him so much but I look forward to the time when we can all welcome him back…I’d like to present him w/a pizza from his pizza oven!❤️🥲🍕🍷

Dear Lou, in the new world we will drink wine and make pizza! eat lots of bread, with fresh olive oil. We will sit on a deck with friends and family watching the sunset, laughing and listening to music. It will be so good. Until then, Jehovah will keep you safe in his memory. We miss you, but we know it won’t be too long until we see you again. It’s just around the corner….

When close family members become close and dear friends, those are special relationships, thus double the loss. We will miss our dear wonderful Luigi, he was always able to make us smile and show his warm affection in all that he did. It is hard for all of us, but he will rest till we can see him again when our dear father in heaven returns him to us in the coming soon paradise on earth. Love you deeply, you will be sorely missed!

Lou was a brother and a fierce friend to me. Words can’t describe the overwhelming hole that is left from his passing. He was always willing to selflessly give of himself to help anyone who needed it. He was humble and always thankful and proud of his family. He always told me how blessed he was for having such a wonderful wife and such a intelligent son. His friendship was a gift that I will long to rekindle when I see him again in the new system.

Lou’s warmth and genuine love for others will be deeply missed. Lou always made me and my daughter feel welcome. He was the one first brother’s to warmly greet us in the Wayne Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and into his home.
Until we meet again my friend, sleep well…..
