To the Gentile Family, We offer you our deepest sympathies on Louie's passing. He died almost a year to the day that my late father, John Villani, passed away. They were Army buddies in WW II and my father wrote about their adventures in Europe in a memoir he produced a few years ago. I had the privilege of finally meeting Lou last year. I felt as if I'd always known him. Such a wonderful man! He will be missed terribly but I'm sure he left many warm memories behind that will provide great comfort to all who knew him. Best wishes to all.

Dear Barbara, Kenny, Claire and PJ, and Ernie, I am so sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful man. I always remember him smiling. Indeed he was a part of our family. I always remember when I was a very young girl, I used to walk to see your Dad, and Lou would play ball with me in the yard, at your Nonna Gentile's house. Again, my deep sympathy. love you all...Gloria xxoo

The Marrazzo family is saddened to hear of Louie's passing. His first wife Anna and my Mother Ann Marrazzo were best of friends growing up. I remember visiting them as a child and couldn't wait to get to their house because I knew eventually I would end up dancing the cha cha with Uncle Louie. We have wonderful memories of both Auntie Ann and Uncle Louie (as they were lovingly referred to). Our love and prayers go out to all of his family.
