Dear DiSantis family, Louie and I go back about five or six years. I can say that he has somewhat taught me to hunt. Ill miss the stories he would tell me and how he and Erine would come up state and take me groundhog hunting with them, to the times i have helped him and Ernie get a deer before they came home. from the "prair" metting the night before opening day to the kind of late start the following morning. However Louie will always be remembered by myself, and many other people that he has met through his life.

To the DeSantis Family, Lou will always be remembered for his friendliness, not only to his friends, but towards total strangers who had the pleasure to cross his path. He had the knack to let people feel comfortable around him. I will always remember the Christmas Eve visits to his home. Since Chistmas was always after hunting season, Lou always had a thousand and one stories of how "the big one got away". The days of 66th St, St. Callistus, the Overbrook Club, Papa playground are behind us now, but the memories of people like Lou remain with us forever. Rest in Peace Louie.

Louis DiSantis was a genuine loving and thoughtful man whom is well loved by his family members and many, yes, many of his friends. He will be missed but not forgotten. His humor and wit have supported many of us through good and bad times. Thank you for being the beautiful man that you have been to us all. Peace be with you. Our thoughts and prayers are especially with his grieving family. We wish for them all of the love and comfort necessary for them to carry on without Louis' physical being in their lives. But, know that a spiritual connection with him will forever be with them. We love you. Teresa, Aaron and Alexis Varnell

Dear DiSantis Family, Our sympathy to the entire family.We were so saddened when Ernie called and told us. Louie was such a joy when he came to the mountains and would stop in to visit. We had just said it is almost time for Louie and Ernie to stop in. When our children were little, they would be so excited when they would see the van drive in. Louie gave us many memories over the years and certainly will always be remembered.

I will always remember Louie, He was a great person and fantastic coach. He helped coach the St. Callistus Girls soft ball team. When we had our games, we would all pile into his green van. We would be screaming out the windows. Of course we had the best team ever! God bless Louie and the DiSantis family.

To The DiSantis Family. Our family extends our deepest sympathy to all of you. We can't think of the St. Callistus days without thinking of Lou. Especially the games down the park. He brought enthusiasm not only to the kids but to all of us on the sidelines. We never had to worry when they were with Lou. He wasn't just their coach and friend but a positive influence.We want to thank you for sharing your husband and father with all of us from "the old neighborhood" We will remember him with a smile.

To the DiSantis Family, I first met Louie when I started driving a bus for Radnor. Only after a couple of weeks, Louie took me under his wing and became a very dear friend, only to find out that we were distantly related. I respected everything he stood for. I would bring him his Metro paper everyday and on Thursday I didn't seem him in the morning and when I went to the school in the afternoon, one of the police officers told me what happenend. I could not believe it. Things won't be the same without him at his post. I will miss Louie so much, as I am sure all of us will. He was a wonderful man and true friend. I love you Louie!

To The DiSantis Family, Words cannot express our feelings for you today. Brian and I along with our daughters spent about thirty minutes talking to "Louie" on Wednesday evening. We always seemed to run into Louie somewhere. Brian has fond memories of being coached by Louie. As he sat on Wednesday evening, he appeared to be holding court. While many people were waiting in line, they left the line just to speak with him. What a testament to the profound affect he has had on an entire neighborhood such as Overbrook. We were blessed on Wednesday to see and speak with him one more time. Our girls had the privilege of meeting him. I am sure that the angels are standing in line just waiting to stop and talk with him. May God's peace be present with all during this most difficult time. Brian and Kyran Keating
