On Monday, December 28th, 2020, Gerald (Lou) Peter Lizewski, of New Boston, MI, loving father of 5, Papa of 4, and (soon to be) great grandfather of 2, passed away peacefully in his sleep with both of his daughters at his side.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Helena; his sons Jeremy, Christopher, and (baby boy); his wife, Penelope; his brothers George and John; his sister, Patricia; and son-in-law, Matthew.

He is survived by his daughters, Jennifer and Tiffany (Bob); his brother, Stanley; and his four grandchildren, Christopher, Taylor, Rebecca, and Casey.

Born in Detroit, MI, raised in Taylor, then moved his family from Detroit to raise his family in Livonia. He supported his family working at Great Lakes/National Steel, from which he retired after 30 years. He enjoyed fishing, gambling, and cooking. Everyone that met Lou loved him and his fun loving, quirky sense of humor.

He is very loved and missed dearly.
