He was a country music enthusiast for many years and enjoyed going to shows with his wife over the years. Anyone entering Lou & Maureen’s home were commonly greeted by a beautiful ocean view and the sound of country music cascading throughout the house. Everyone who knew Lou knew how much he loved fishing, boating and cars – Corvettes in particular. He enjoyed many years spending time with his wife at their condo in Punta Gorda, FL.
He enjoyed many lifelong friendships including a strong friend group bonded by the commonality of having and raising special needs children. In his later years he enjoyed his role as a grandfather and keeping track of his grandchildren’s activities, adventures and accomplishments.
