The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Louis was born to Vito & Maria on February 17, 1915 and was the "baby" of the family, one of 8 children and was raised on Lime Street. He taught his grade school teacher to dance "the Charleston" and often performed music and danced at parties for money. As a young man, he even won dance contests.

In his youth, he enjoyed music, sports such as soccer, baseball, track, swimming, and boxing. He played saxophone, clarinet, harmonica, ukelele, and played in a dance band. He earned his high school diploma at Madison High and went on to get his Bachelors, Masters and a variety of other certifications at Ithaca College.

Louis was in the US Navy, serving in World War II as a Specialist First Class at Sampson Naval base. He trained troops and sailors.

He was married for 60 years to his wife, Ann, who he met in junior high school. They had two children and a pet dog named Lady.

Some of Louis's favorite events included traveling to Italy, taking a coast to coast drive to California, visiting Acapulco and the Dominican Republic.

He loved and was proficient in all sports and was a very successful amateur boxer. He had 66 fights with 60 victories and 20 knockouts! He received an invitation to fight a preliminary bout to a Joe Louis title fight in Madison Square Garden. He declined because he wanted to pursue his education.

Louis loved the Yankees, dance band music, Sanford & Son, Ed Sullivan Show, and often told you to "be careful driving, the roads are a glare of ice".

Louis had a good life because he made it that way. He loved people, was intensely loyal to his family, friends, and institutions such as Ithaca College. He was very generous and often gave of himself and his resources. Louis will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
