Memories and Condolences

Lou was one of my best friends in grade school at st Mary’s in Medford. We had some great times. He was a very funny kid and we laughed a lot and I have great memories from those times. We had a small very close class and we were always together. Lost touch when we went to different high schools and just recently got back in touch on Facebook. I’m glad I was in touch with him again and I’ll akways remember all the great times! RIP BROTHER

Lou lived with our family for a while when we were in High School. We were best buddies and he became more than that. My older brother and three younger sisters all remember him fondly and considered him family. But as life happens, we lost touch more and more over the years after he moved to Philly. I hadn't spoken to Lou in at least 20 years. But his name still comes up frequently with some of the best memories of those high school years. He was the funniest guy on his feet I ever knew. His natural wit was unparalleled, his laugh infectious and I can't count how many great memories I have with that guy, most of them crazy, holding my stomach from laughing so hard.
When I heard this news it hurt very badly and it's sad how life rolls out like this. I hope Lou can rest now. I really do. I don't know what he was up to the past 20+ years. But like some of these other messages convey, he was probably making other people laugh while he may have been struggling himself. And I do know his memory will be held secure with an entire family and network of friends who will never forget all the joy he brought us. See you on the other side buddy.

Lou was a great friend. We were close growing up in high school. I used to pick Lou up for school everyday the years he spent at Holy Cross before he moved to Philly. I would talk to Lou couple times a year but I missed him being around. Time goes by so fast.He never stopped being a good friend. Anytime I saw him it was like he never left. We picked up where we left off. If it wasnt for my wife putting me on Facebook I would have never had the chance to tell him he always had a friend in me. People come and go but Lou was a special guy. He had a gift for making you laugh and you knew he was a true friend. I'll miss him. Love you brother.

I met Lewis at Ryan in the mid 90s we became the best of friend and remained close until our mid 20s when we lost touch I recently reconnected with Lou about a year ago and would laugh talking about all the great times we spent together .My fondest memories in my life were spent with Lou and Jadach among others and I loved him like a brother and will miss him and think of him every day .My deepest condolences to Sam and the Cancelliere and Gallagher family’s I will never forget Lou and the friendship he gave to me

Lou, Brother, first friend when I moved to Jersey,
Rest easy my Brother, I’m sorry I never reached out. I hope your at peace and all your pain is gone.

One Love

I will miss our chats on line. He has always had a special place in my heart.
He used to come over to our house as kid. He would smell what was cooking. Always wanted to try our English and Indian food.
He loved my cheese and onion pie.
I am so sad today.

As I look out my window I remember the picnic we all had with family and friends and u smiling so big and bright. Not a care in the world. U came to Arkansas to heal ur wounds. You touched so many people lives with ur sense of humor, ur willingness to help other.... but u couldn't help URSELF. I will never get over this because u were like a son to me. My son is sadden and in disbelief with ur passing.I pray you are at peace....

Enjoyed a few years working together as Glaziers
Rest In Peace my friend
