Louis Schifano Obituary
Louis C. Schifano, Jr.

Melbourne, FL

Louis C Schifano, Jr. 83 of Melbourne went to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

He was born on February 14, 1931 in Rochester, NY

Louis loved his friends. He was on the Monroe High School reunion committee for the Class of 1950 as a classmate searcher. He enjoyed his trips to Rochester for every reunion. He enjoyed his picnics barbecuing for family and the local Rochester reunions and loved the yearly Corgi Aid fund picnics. Louis chuckled each time the corgis herded through the auctioneer, barking and wiggling their "tails." Animals were loved dearly with his dog, Corky and cats Bucky and Becky. Holidays were full of joy. He always went all out from making cardboard fireplaces to cooking wonderful dinners with English trifle. He was a great cook, especially Italian. He was a sports fanatic. Played baseball in high school and in the military then coached and managed little league. He and his wife, Babs, were avid bowlers on many leagues. An Air Force veteran of 21 years as military intelligence radio operator, he was stationed to many places with his family including Italy where he enjoyed authentic Italian fare and friends.

He is survived by his wife Marjorie, daughters Virginia (John), Jean (Michael), son Michael (Diana), sisters Jeanette Leonardo (Sam), Marie Panepinto, granddaughter Trisha and great-grandson Mason.

There will be a visitation on Wednesday, May 21 from 2-3pm followed by a funeral service at 3pm at the Life Event Center at Florida Memorial. Interment will follow at Florida Memorial Gardens.
