Louis was born and raised in the Morris Park section of The Bronx. He was well known for his thoughtful gestures, lighthearted nature and comedic relief. He held many titles in his life; son, brother, nephew. cousin, uncle, friend, and neighbor. A devoted family man, his love and commitment to them came first. He opened his heart and lent a hand to anyone without reservation.
He was a well respected mason in the Local #7 marble union in a career that spanned decades.
A man of simple pleasures, he enjoyed family dinners (mostly dessert), animals (namely his late and beloved dog Fleegal and his sweet rescue cat, Roxy), walks around the neighborhood, incessant jokes and laughter. His presence will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
