Known as a Lionel Train enthusiast, family photographer, and aficionado of biking and kayaking, Lou embraced life’s joys. His eclectic taste in music, from Bruce Springsteen to country melodies, reflected his vibrant spirit. Lou’s skills extended to fixing anything, and he often appointed himself as the Uber driver for his kids and grandkids.
