Words cant explain just how great of a human being Louie was. I have known him for over 20 years racing the circuit and spending lots of time with the legion. I had the pleasure of racing with him for several years in my SVL and we had a blast !!!! The words that come to mind when I think of Louie are kind, giving, helping, honest, family man, does what he say's, humble, charitable, and the list could fill this page with the same types of words. He will forever be in my heart as a inspiration.
RIP
