Louis D. Brandi

AGE: 82 • Smyrna

Louis "Lousy" Brandi died suddenly after suffering an accident at home on Tuesday, January 12, 2016.

Born in Wilmington, DE on June 21, 1933, Lou was preceded in death by his parents, Emidio and Amalia Brandi; four brothers, James, Mario, Philip and Rocco; and one sister, Clothilda DiGuglielmo.

Lou is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Peggy Sue (Haynes) Brandi; seven nephews, six nieces, and three great nephews. Lou and Peg were each other's best friend and shared a strong bond and commitment which never wavered from the time they married.

A native Delawarean, Lou resided in New Castle County for more than 38 years, and spent the last 8 years residing in Smyrna. He was a very proud Air Force Veteran and served our country during the Korean War. Lou retired from the Blood Bank of Delaware in 1998. An avid horse racing fan and handicapper, Lou and Peg loved to travel and especially enjoyed vacationing near good thoroughbred horse racing venues in the Southern United States. He truly valued and enjoyed his Italian Heritage, his family and lifelong friends, and had the ability to make friends with anyone he met.

Family and friends may visit at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 901 N. DuPont Street, Wilmington, DE 19805 on Friday, January 22 from 12:00-12:45PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:00PM. Interment will be held privately.
