Lou and Toni were my favorite customers when they came in to eat. I absolutely loved having them. They always called me giggles, Lou always seemed so happy to see me. I pray for his family during this hard time.

I was saddened to learn of Lou's death. I remember our competitions when he swam for the Uniontown YMCA and I swam for Jack Morris at the YMHA. He then came to Pitt as a welcome addition to the team. I still have a picture with Lou and Tony that Tony gave me from the Cuyahoga meet hanging in my den.
My deepest sympathy to Lou's family.
