The Canevari family sadly announces the death of Louis, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He died peacefully at home in his sleep surrounded by his family after his battle with pancreatic cancer. Louis was born and raised in San Francisco, raising his own family in San Rafael during which time he purchased property in Potter Valley. Louis and his daughters moved to the valley in 1981, with his sons later joining him. An avid fisherman, hunter and devoted family man, Lou loved having his children living close by giving him many opportunities to visit with them. He will be greatly missed. Services will be held at Eversole Mortuary in Ukiah, CA on Friday, December 28 at 11:00 a.m., with a celebration of life to follow. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Hospice of Ukiah.
