Louis T. Balch, 53 Louis T. Balch, 53, of West Chester, passed away on July 6, 2014. Lou loved life and lived each day to the fullest with either taking friends and family on his boat, taking them for rides on his Harley Davidson or even taken them to the skies in the airplane that he so enjoyed, yet his true passion was his shop. Lou was the proud owner and operator of Lou's Automotive on State Road in Upper Darby. He opened his shop 1999 with the help of Kevin Goblirsch and Pete Dakas and many good friends who are still with him today. Lou was the type of guy that didn't understand the word "NO", if you told him there was something that couldn't be done he made it happen and he did it. His famous words around the shop were "Pete/Kevin, I don't care how you do it, just do it." His legacy and life lessons will forever live on with those close to him whose lives he touched so much. He is the father to the late Preston Balch, Survived by Kathy Savage and her two daughters Trystyn and Lauren Goblirsch.
