Louis Joseph Peluso Jr.

Naples, FL

Louis Joseph Peluso Jr., born March 13, 1924 in New Brighton, Pennsylvania passed away on January 20, 2018. Lou was a devoted family man, proud of his Marine service during the Second World War, active in the Rotary and builder of a successful business, Peluso Moving and Storage.

Born the son of Italian immigrants Louis Joseph Peluso Sr. and Marta Cazzola Peluso. He had five siblings, brothers Sam (deceased), Albert (Lyle), and Frank, as well as sisters Mary Louise and Frances (deceased). He lived a life full of adventure and travel, heartbreak, success and much happiness.

Lou was preceded in death by his lovely wife Patsy, his son Terry, and his daughter Patti. He cared with love and determination for both Patsy and Patti in the final years of their illnesses. Louis leaves behind his two daughters Lou Anne and Marta, their husbands Adam Johnson and George Cotkin, 3 grandchildren Adam, Erik, and Ande Johnson, their wives Christina, Susan, and Kelly, and 10 great grandchildren Braden, Chase, Casey, Gracie, Owen, Knox, Taylor, Emma, Harper, and Audrey.

Just prior to his passing, Louis said, "if I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't change a thing."

In lieu of flowers the family is asking that you consider a donation in the memories of Lou and Patti Peluso, made to the Special Olympics of Collier County. Condolences may be left online at www.HodgesNaplesMG.com.

Visitation will commence at 11 a.m. with Funeral Service beginning at 1 p.m., Thursday January 25, at Hodges Funeral Home at Naples Memorial Gardens, 525 111th Ave N., Naples, Florida.

So grateful for the very special time, though brief, that my dad, Rudy, and Lou had as friends. Such a wonderful man and such a very special and generous family. We will miss him and hope that we can stay in touch.

My Uncle Louie, passed away today. He will be missed. So many memories - as a child playing at his house in New Brighton, working for him as a teen during summer break at Peluso Movers Ambridge, and having him worship at Dothan Vineyard with us on visits. He would always rave about our church, how wonderful it was - that meant a lot from Uncle Lou as he never said anything he didn't mean. We love and miss you and see you in heaven.

To the uncle we all knew so well he was the boss and in a command style tell you how to pad a dresser in a crate a ton of good time at Peluso Moving co. in Beaver county days also the party's at the house I would cut the grass and trim. Also help uncle Tom Mckee for whatever uncle lou needed done around the house or down at the new brighton warehouse. As a child we would lots for picnics and birthdays with the family up Uncle Louie's house play down the woods in creek. the spring in the hillside. Many many great times there at the house on crescent heights. Here's to you Uncle Lou we will miss you.
