Louie was very kind hearted and extremely generous literally willing to give you the shirt off of his back before thinking of himself. He was always willing to help out a stranger even though most times he didn’t have much to offer but his compassion and a cigarette or two. He was very proud of his thirty eight year commitment to his sobriety. He had a love of classic rock music including Led Zeppelin and Bruce Springsteen being his favorites and enjoyed food with a passion. He will be sorely missed by family, friends and anyone that crossed his path. Rest easy our baby brother, we will always love and miss you until we meet again in eternal peace.
A private cremation will take place and a burial at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery, North Hanover, NJ will be held in July, 2022 with a Memorial and Celebration of Life to follow at that time
