You taught us so much about life, love, and commitment. I wish we could have seen you more this past year and could have been with you at the end. We love you, miss you, thank you, and hope that you are in heaven with all the relatives and friends who have gone before you. Rest In Peace.

Louis was the last one of my 5 Brothers-in Laws ( husbands of my 4 sisters). He was a loving and devoted husband and father to my 4 nieces. I will miss him so much. My prayers go out to his wife Pauline and daughters Donna, Roseann, Joan and Nancy. RIP Louie.

My sincere sympathies to the Orban family. I worked with Louie at the Drop Forge within Bethlehem Steel and also enjoyed the same hobby of work working, which we often talked about and exchanged ideas. Remember playing pinochle with him and Pauline as well.
