Lou will be forever in the hearts of his wife Frances, his son and best friend Eduard (Nancy), his identical twin brother Larry (Meredith), his grandchildren Kathryn and Nate, his nephews Eric (Clara) and Alden (Joann) and his stepdaughters Eve (John) and Clare (Juensung).
Lou’s friends and family remember Lou for his sense of adventure, world knowledge, curiosity, generosity, and acerbic wit (all tinged with irreverence). Lou was an avid sports fan, following college and pro football, NBA, and MLB – all the while on the phone discussing the plays and making his bets. Lou was extremely well read with an extensive library covering all corners of the house. He was always selecting the right book to give to a friend and thankful when receiving books from friends and family specifically chosen for him.
Lou’s career as an award-winning copy writer and creative director at DDB and other advertising agencies took him on assignments around the world, with semi-permanent stops in Detroit, New York, Dusseldorf, and Toronto. His colleagues viewed him as a highly gifted and unique talent. Many friendships and never to be forgotten adventures ensued during those Mad Men days.
As were his wishes, celebrations of his life will be held in Hawaii, Whitehorse, and Toronto in the months to come.
“To feel the love of people whom we love is a fire that feeds our life.”
