I am so sad to hear this news! Lou gave me my first job in A/P in 1988. He was a great guy and a great boss and will be missed by all those who knew him. He moved down to NC but I don't think he stayed there. I heard he had come back to NY. To his sons and their families, I'm so sorry for your loss. RIP Lou.............

Lou & I worked on the Audit staff at Avis. One day upon learning that we would be performing an audit in Mexico for 2 months, Lou insisted on being a part of the team going to Mexico. We were worried about Lou being away for so long, with his heart problems, bad pollution in Mexico City & High altitude (making breathing difficult). Lou finally got his Doc's ok to go to Mexico. One night in Mexico City Lou became violently ill ( probably the bad water) . One of the other auditors went with Lou in a Mexican Ambulance, at 2 am in the morning to a Mexico City Hospital. However upon making his way back to the hotel, the other auditor couldn't remember the name of the Hospital or where it was located. (apparently too much tequilla) . We thought we lost Lou & didn't know what to tell his wife. However 2 days later Lou was feeling better & not being very fluent in Spanish he could not converse with any doctors or nurses; So Lou got dressed & walked out of the hospital, making his way back to the Avis offices in Mexico city. After that, Lou became the Accounts Payable Supervisor, & he didn't need to do much business travel. We ate lunch together in the cafeteria for many years & I always remember our interesting conversations .

As a fellow coworker at Avis, he was well liked and excellent performer. Over the years since he left, it great keeping in contact with him and bantering about our different political opinions. He always respected the opinions of others. He will be missed.

Lou was the best! Although I haven't been in contact with Lou for some time, I think of him often with very fond memories. Lou was a stickler as an auditor, and it rubbed off on the whole audit team. He was a great role model for us younger "know-it-alls." He had heart problems, but had a heart of gold. I will always remember Lou - he was a good man, a good soul. Goodbye, Lou.
