Condolences to Margaret and family members. As a member of the Wheeling Duplicate Bridge Club I will miss seeing Lou at the bridge table. He was a fun loving and skilled player but more importantly he was a gentleman. Rest In Peace Lou.

For the last few years we have missed Lou's humor at the bridge table. He was a wonderful man and a formidable opponent at the bridge table. Please accept my sympathy at the loss of Lou: husband, parent, grandparent and friend. Laura Carter
