Lou Cosco was a true family man and a tremendous neighbor who was always kind and willing to help take care of what needed to be done. Lou and Joan we know were proud of the family they have raised and such is a wonderful legacy. God's speed and prayers of comfort for the entire family in the certain hope to all be reunited one day in heaven.

Louie was one of the nicest men that I’ve ever worked with. I worked with him at Breathing Apparatus Service (of the CFD). He always in a good mood and loved to have a good laugh.
