Luigi and I would talk about my military career with the Air Force. He referred to me as "Captain" .He showed me a picture of himself in the military. He was very proud. Sorry to hear of his passing. TSgt. Eric Jaeger.

It was a pleasure knowing Luigi. I always enjoyed visiting him at his barber shop or when he would come see me at our restaurant. He was so full of life and was always smiling. I got to see Luigi last week at his new location. We would discuss food, weather, the neighborhood, family, politics, etc. I looked forward to catching up with him and visiting with his other customers as well. It was fun to hang and chat with them.

My grandfather immigrated to St. Louis from Taranto Italy, and was a Taylor by trade. He passed away before I was born. Although I only knew Luigi about 17 years, ( not long enough) I would look at Luigi as kind of a grandfather figure and friend. I’m really going to miss him.

My deepest condolences to the family. I’m very sorry for your loss. May his memory be eternal.

Luigi was my barber for well over a decade, and my son's barber as well when he was in St Louis.

I don't get my hair and beard trimmed that often, so when I came in for a haircut, I really needed it. Upon seeing me, Luioi would would always clutch his his heart and say "Look! It's St Joseph!" He was always full of jokes. After he was finished with my haircut, he would always tell me I looked like Casanova, and advise me to go to the disco.

The last time I saw him was about a month ago, at the new location, where I got my usual greeting. He was in a great mood, he had the old tape player going, and while he was trimming the back of my head he was doing a little dance and singing along to Funiculì Funiculà, After the haircut, we sat and talked for a little while, eating cookies.

He called me his friend, and I will always cherish that.
