  1. Dear Pat and Bobby please accept my sincere condolences. Pat, it was always nice to spend some time with you and Louis when I visited with Harry and Arlene.

  2. So very sorry to hear of the passing of Louis…..a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He will be missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.

  3. Louie was a kind and supportive gentleman. Always alert to changing circumstances, he developed a worthy career in Canada’s armed forces as an electronic technical expert. His carpenter skills inherited down the generations served him well throughout his lifetime. He cherished his two boys and ensured they participated in a wide variety of sports which stood them in good stead as they entered adulthood. In retirement he offered these skill to his family and community at an age when electronics were becoming mainstream and many people had a desire for such adult learning. He was a religious man and gave back through membership in the Knights of Columbus for many years.

  4. Our condolences to you, Pat and Bobby, on the passing of your beloved Louie. I remember Lou as a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, an avid sportsman, a willing and active volunteer in his church and community, and a exemplary member of his veterans family. Lou was always well-read and informed on the news of the world, and would welcome discussions on many and varied topics. He always loved a good story or joke, and responded with a hearty laugh that was contagious. Lou accepted his Parkinson’s diagnosis with dignity and good humour; it was indeed very fitting that he donated the gift of his body for future research. We hope your many memories of good times, travels, family vacations and outings comfort and sustain you in your coming days.

  24. My sincere condolences to Pat, Robert, Maureen, Florence and Dan. Louis was a lifelong friend who I first met in Baden Germany in 1966. Louis and I had many travels together while stationed in Germany. On one occasion while driving to Spain we approached the Spanish border and were met by the border guards. Not speaking Spanish, we thought their waves meant we were given the go-ahead to enter. Not so. Two guards came rushing out brandishing guns and shouting at us to the point we thought they were going to shoot us. Fortunately a senior English speaking guard came and cleared it all up and we were on our way. That incident was a scary one that Louis and never forgot. After a couple of years of adventures, my close friend Louis was transferred to Summerside. He was grateful for that as he was headed home. About 8 months later I was lucky to be transferred to Summerside, and found our friendship never missed a beat. Louis used to invite me to stay at his place in Morell. His parents, brother and sisters treated me like a member of their family, for which I have always been grateful. The Air Force eventually sent us on different paths, but we always kept in contact whenever possible.
    Rest in peace my good friend.
