Our sincere sympathy to the Acierno family for their loss.
Lou and I were classmates from 1st grade thru 12, then 45 years went by without contact. We moved to Melbourne and surprisingly we get a call from Lou, so we get up to date with each other and for the next 10 plus years we developed a strong friendship. We would have great conversations, solve the World's problems, relive our past, laugh and enjoy each others company along with our wives Marilyn and Joyce. Lou will be missed by his family and a lot of others. God Bless, rest in peace. The Gould's

How blessed we are to have had such a special friend in our lives. Lou's caring ways, optimism, sense of humor, and love for others has been ever present. His complete dedication to his high school class, JMHS 55, and the countless hours he spent as Gulliver, helping us to “keep in touch”, will always be treasured. Our hearts go out to Marilyn and his dear family... we are richer for having known Lou and will carry him in our hearts until we all meet again. God Bless...

I will miss my brother-in-law so very much. When I was going through bad times, he was always there to listen and to lift my spirits. He could always make me smile no matter what. He was a special guy. But everyone that knew him already knows that.

Lou was the kind of person that would light up a dark day. He would make me laugh when I would feel like crying. So glad he came to visit us and my heart goes out to Marilyn, Mary Ann and family. Mary King
