Born in a north Toronto, Ontario farming community, Lou met Patricia and married in 1952. They raised a family while Lou worked in agricultural and heavy construction. Lou and Pat moved to Kelowna, BC in 1989 where Lou started his backhoe business. He had strong work ethics and a friendly easy-going manner.
Throughout his life, Lou had an active role in the church community and with the Knights of Columbus.
He loved camping and the outdoor lifestyle, travelling many miles with Pat in their RV.
Lou was always there with a helping hand for anyone who needed one and was always quick to become involved with community projects.
