We are so saddened to hear of Lou's passing. We are his neighbors and will always remember the wonderful stories he shared about his wife and family. He was always so proud. He was a very sweet and soft spoken. May his memory be eternal and again we are very sorry to hear.

Dear Lou: I remember all the good times as a kid with you and your family in Wildwood and our summer vacation. It’s been a long time since we’ve been together but I’ll always have the family memories. May you Rest In Peace and you’ll be joining Barbara in heaven. God Bless, Bill & Michael Gruccio

"Lucky Lou" that's what some people called him, but we were the lucky ones to have him in our life. I have so many beautiful memories of my "Uncle" whether it was family BBQ's, New Year's Eve at Uncle Mike's or those fun Wildwood Summers. But my absolute favorite memory was on those Christmas vacation sleep overs with my cousins when Uncle Louie would come home from work the first thing he did was kiss Aunt Barbara and if you could just imagine her face being even more beautiful than you should have seen it then. Than was Uncle Louie a true distinguished, dignified gentleman. Rest in eternal peace my sweet Uncle.
