A Tribute to Lou
10/31/19

As a person goes through life, one meets a lot of people and has many friends. For me, this was especially true for my colleagues at Westinghouse. However, there is also a small cadre of people who occupy a very special relationship in one’s life, and that is where Lou fits.

A number of years ago, he, Dave Beck, and I spent many long hours, took many fascinating trips, and worked very closely together for several years on a successful project that led to a lasting relationship and a very special bond between us. This close association provided an opportunity to observe him in action in myriad difficult and often demanding situations, and through that, grow to better know and understand a great deal about Lou the man, dedicated father, and loyal American.

Lou was always self-deprecating, but one of the first things that popped out---in rare, unguarded moments---is that he was a man of many talents. Probably few know that he was actually hired by the New York Yankees as a young pitcher, whose career was unfortunately cut short by a shoulder injury. If memory serves, I believe he also played the traps as a youth. Anyone who knew him will also agree that he had a special gift for engaging with people---when a person met him, Lou was someone whom they immediately liked and felt comfortable with, whether they be the janitor or the CEO.

Lou had a special gift for pulling together complex, winning proposals. He had a very keen mind, and was able to grasp the “big picture” while also understanding intricate details of complex issues. He never drew attention to himself, but instead was always interested in and looking to further understand other people. This genuine empathy for others made him unusually effective in winning people over, as they could immediately sense that he was real and not putting on a show to win favor.

As an effective leader, he was a demanding task master and expected others to carry their fair share, but never a burden larger than he himself carried even more so. He was also a man of deep faith. Despite the demands of work and family, he still found time to teach religion to young children. He made a great role model, as he “walked the walk” in his daily life.

Finally, Lou was a man of great courage, as exemplified by the last year or so of his life. Although stricken with a terrible disease and undergoing multiple operations and debilitating treatments, one would never have known that there was anything wrong, as his eternal optimism and emphasis on everything but himself continued unabated. All of this is but a small snapshot of some of his exceptional qualities and accomplishments.

Perhaps most of all, he was a devoted family man, and was intensely proud of his children. His love for them was easy to see, and was surpassed only by his love for and devotion to Peg, his dear wife, of whom he spoke often.

Lou’s passing leave a hole in many of our lives that will never be filled. His many friends and I are intensely grateful and fortunate that he was a part of our lives. Having known him has made better people of all of us.

Most sincerely,
Noel Longuemare
