Those that knew Louis, knew he was a man of integrity and faith. He loved his family, friends, housework, real estate and hockey.
Louis loved spending time with his son, daughters and grandchildren and going to their various activities, from motor cross, dance recitals, basketball, softball, and hockey. Besides being a devoted family man, he had an impact on many lives, both inside and outside the hockey rink. Starting as a player for the Zephyrs in the ‘80’s and early ‘90’s, he continued his love for the sport and coached for more than 40 years at the high school level at Bishop Kearney and Webster and in various youth programs. He prided himself at not only developing his team’s performance on the ice, but furthering their growth off the ice, ensuring they were responsible young adults and that they gave back to their community. Over the years, he continued to assist his former players, even helping some transition to adulthood with a career in real estate.
He was not only a coach, but a seasoned mentor and manager in the local real estate community. Lou started his career as a sales agent at Lamplighter Realty in the ‘80’s, and for the past 15 years, he was manager of ‘Webster’s Finest’ at Howard Hanna; formerly Nothnagle. He truly had a passion for real estate. Lou always said that “being in the business, you are always working.”
His proudest role was being a grandfather. His grandchildren all adored him and referred to Louis as their “Pa” and “Grandpa.”
Besides watching his grandchildren’s events, coaching hockey and working 24/7, some of his favorite hobbies included cleaning the house, making sure that his lawn mowing lines were straight (or else there would have to be a redo), washing and waxing his cars, going to the gym, taking long walks at night, as well as the occasional “going for a drive” to the casino or on his favorite road in Webster, Lake Road.
Later in life, Louis found the love of his life, Christine. They spent summers up at the Thousand Islands relaxing riverside and sometimes even being adventurous, he dipped his feet into the water. They enjoyed going out to dinner together.
Louis had a zest for life, and as his online dating profile said, “I love to work, but I love to play.”
He will be missed by many.
