Lou loved many things in life. Included were opera (especially Italian), civic and professional groups, and football. He held offices in many organizations, including the Princeton Alumni Association. He loved his profession and designed streets, highways, and developments throughout Arizona.
Lou is survived by his wife of 63 years, Linda; daughter Beth; son Louis and his wife, Melissa; and six grandchildren and their families. He was predeceased by his parents and his sister Marie.
Lou was actively engaged in mentoring his grandchildren, and nothing gave him greater delight than to celebrate their successes and achievements at monthly family gatherings. He also shared his love of opera, taking each of his children and grandchildren to experience the Arizona Opera numerous times over the years. Surely, the angels in heaven greeted him with La Boheme’s “Quando m’en vo.”
