A U.S. Army veteran, he was stationed in Germany during the Vietnam War. He was a graduate of Bryant College with a bachelor’s degree in Law Enforcement.
Lou loved being out in nature, whether it be hunting and fishing, or bird watching. He loved tending to his vegetable and flower gardens and tinkering in his workshop, and enjoyed playing golf and the guitar. He was a member of the Smithfield Lodge of Elks, B.P.O.E. and the former Lincoln F.O.P., and a member of Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, Pawtucket.
