I had the honor of working with Lou for many years at Eastman. Not only was he a co-worker but a true friend. I have never met a finer person that Lou. I am so glad we got to spend some time together this past fall reminiscing about the “good old days”. I knew he was suffering but not once in several hours we were together did he complain. Marie and family you have my deepest condolences in your loss of a wonderful husband and father/ grandfather. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Rest high my friend until we meet again.
