Together they had two sons; Mark (Lynette) and Anthony (Lisa).
Louie’s greatest joy was his grandchildren Meghan, Markus, Oliver, Mariah and Auri. He loved taking them on bike rides, to 7-11 to get slurpees, he was always up to carpool them wherever they wanted to go. He taught them how to fish, how to fix things, the value of hard work and that it was important to have a strong opinion. He was in the stands at all of their games- he was so proud of them. He taught them of his love for Jesus, and for his family. Never leaving with out giving them a kiss on the cheek.
