Lou, you left us way too soon, man! I'll never forget you, and your smiling face! Fly high, my friend! Ride in Peace!

Though it is true that we may never know why God has chosen this time for him one thing we do know is that Louie touched the hearts and lives of many people while he was with us. He was most surely the giver of joy to all those who had the privilege of knowing him.

HE will be deeply missed from this point forward but never forgotten, for we all will cherish in our hearts those fond memories we have of him.

Our thoughts and prayers are especially with his family during this time of unlimited sorrow

My heart is ripped out. I met Lou when we were about 16. Stood around a campfire many nights, we worked together one place or another all my life.I can't explain who Lou was to everybody else but I consider him my brother and will never get over losing him. We had great times, got in trouble together and laughed about it later. We had a great time at our shop we had with Carl. Life is never going to be the same. Love ya bro.

My prayers are with Lou's family during this sad time. I've known Lou since the early eighties. He totally rewired my 1958 Owens (boat) and made many repairs on its engine. Lou and I went to many camp grounds, folk festivals, sharing countless beers and laughs. I'm happy he came over to my house several times last year for BBQ and sit fireside reminiscing the old days. Lou was a good guy. He had a huge heart. I'm honored to have called him friend. May God's peace be with Lou's family and friends grieving his loss. Rest in Peace my friend.
