Louis was the beloved husband of Angiolina "Angie" (Pisani) Marano, with whom he shared 63 years of marriage.

Born in Sant'Angelo in Grotte, Italy, on December 21, 1933, a son of the late Pasquale and Antonette Marano, he was raised and educated in Italy where he was a mason by trade. Louis then immigrated to America in the 1950s.where he worked on the railroad in Ignace, Canada. He later moved and settled in Franklin in late 1960 where he reunited with Angie. They were married on October 15, 1960.

Louis worked as a machinist for Kendall Mills in Walpole. He worked as a handyman at Wrentham Developmental Center from 1969 until he retired in 1998.

Louis was a pillar of hard work and dedication, deeply committed to his family and their well-being. With a tireless work ethic, he juggled two jobs to ensure his loved ones had the opportunities he dreamed for them. Louis found solace and joy in his workshop, where he honed his skills in fixing and building, crafting creations out of wood and cement that reflected his craftsmanship and ingenuity.

Louis's green thumb was evident in his abundant vegetable garden, where he poured his heart into nurturing each plant to fruition. His garden was not just a source of sustenance, but a testament to his love to provide the best for his family. He prided himself on making homemade sausages and wine, as well as his frittata that he would faithfully deliver each Easter to family and friends. His family will lovingly continue this tradition in his memory.
