Louie hired me on October 27, 1972 at Rochester Products Div,, General Motors Corp. where he was the manager in the Plant Engineering Department. I was a 24 year old, inexperienced Industrial Engineer. Lou was a great mentor to me. A true gentlemen, leader and a great friend. Throughout the years I worked as a Manufacturing Supervisor, Purchasing Buyer and ultimately a Purchasing Manager. Without Louie's guidance and teachings, I would have never been where I am today. He took a chance on me when he hired me and it turned out to be the luckiest day of my life. I will always be thankful for having met and worked for such a great man. Rest in peace my friend. My family and I will miss you and will always pray for you. Richard

Dear Louis, I think of you as a decent kind honest polite person, no one can ever live a lifetime better than that; whenever people ask I’ll repeat the same words. You are a credit to mankind. People like you live in my heart, when I die we’ll all leave together. Thank you. Sincerely, Christopher P. Noun Rochester, New York
