He was born March 22, 1920, in Washington, Pa.
He was married to Pauline L. Greco in July, 1942. She preceded him in death in February 1993. They were married for 50 years.
Louis was a World War II veteran, having served in the European theater for five years. He was proud of the time he served in the military, often relating his experiences. He loved to celebrate Veterans Day. He was a longtime member of the American Legion.
He retired from Owens-Illinois, formerly Brockway Glass Company, in 1983 after 44 years of service. His diligence afforded him the title of packaging engineer.
Although packaging was his livelihood, his major avocation was music.

He played in many Pittsburgh area bands, including with Canonsburg native Bobby Vinton, and was primarily a member of the Johnny Cimino Orchestra, playing string bass.
