Dearest Cecelia, I have met you at the farmer's market on Sunday mornings a couple of times a few years back with Lou. I met Lou at the treadmill at 24 hour fitness downtown Long Beach 20 years ago. Recently I came across a short story Lou wrote of Alaska 1960.
Please let me know if you or any family member would like. Please accept my deepest sympathy to you and your families. With regards, Diane Rose Fallaha Long Beach CA.
Our families met long ago in Santa Maria, CA. when Lou and our dad (Bill Niederhauser) were in the oil business. This common bond led to other interests such as clamming at Pismo Beach and field trial training of the family beagles. To call the dogs in, our dad procurred a cow horn from his uncle the state cattle inspector which Lou cleaned up and adorned with his art... it worked! And never to be forgotten are the moose antlers that were delivered to our front door, sent by Lou from Alaska to adorn our new rumpus room! Also memorable was his bota bag technique... what a guy! Lou's passion for life was contagious and inspirational. Our heartfelt condolences to Cecilia and the entire Canut family.

I had the good fortune to meet Lou at a USS Bennion reunion in the late 90s and have looked forward to his warm smile and spirited conversation at every gathering since. On behalf of our family - especially my dad and Lou's former shipmate, Bill - heartfelt condolences to Cecilia and the Canut family. Rest in peace, Lou.
Lou was such a great friend to me. He always made me feel welcome while I attended the many reunions with my dad. I will miss his smile and interesting conversations. It is said that sometimes the bad things in life make the good things that much better. I wish nothing but good things to Cecilia and family.
God Bless You...
