Louis was born in Brooklyn, New York on October 19th, 1933. He was a devoted husband and father working up to three jobs to take care of his family and eventually became an accomplished automotive mechanic owning his own business "L & B Carburetors". He met his wife and love of his life when he was 19 and two short years later they tied the knot and started their family. Twenty years and 4 children later Louis retired and moved his family to Phoenix, AZ in search of brighter weather. He spent his retirement tinkering with old radios, traveling the world with his wife and cooking for his family. He was the strong firm foundation that his family leaned on. He was a hilarious, brilliant, strong man. He will be loved up in heaven but woefully missed down here.
