Kingston in Ulster County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
No. 1 Boater No. 1 Friend
Lou, fond of saying, “Just Relax,” had great concern for others. He often helped boaters in distress and could be seen retrieving broken-away docks. God saw fit to take him, but not before Lou had accomplished one more good and lasting deed. He inspired businessmen and others to build needed additional public docks with private contributions. As a result of his effort, our harbor will have a permanent benefit and continue to be inspired by the concern he had for his neighbors.
Presented by his City and his friends, July 3, 1988
