Louis Perrone, 69, of Willimantic, CT died on July 6 at Windham Hospital in
in Hartford, CT on August 8, 1944, Lou was predeceased by
his wife Mary, the love of his life. Lou was a veteran,
proudly serving in the
Marines during the Vietnam Conflict. Lou is survived by his beloved daughters
Heather Perrone and Stacy Perrone.
Lou was well liked by those at Windham Hospital where he worked as a guard
and later, when diabetes began to affect his legs,
as a greeter. He was a
“no nonsense” kind of guy who made security rounds and ensured the
Emergency Room was calm and everything
and everyone had order. Yet, it
would be Lou that could be seen carefully helping those who are older
challenged in/out of their vehicles.
Lou loved his cat Domino and taking daily walks. And,
at the church, Lou was
a centering post, making sure the altar was set up and ready for worship service
and Bible study.
Lou was a familiar face as an usher during Communion, always
making sure the process was orderly! Yet, underneath
his ‘get it done’ serious
demeanor, Lou was a sensitive man who cared deeply for others. He would
first to offer a ride or make sure someone had whatever they needed. Lou
simply never said “no” and, even though
suffering from health issues, never
complained. Lou was a good and faithful servant, in every sense and one
always (and always did) count on.
Lou was a wonderful friend and a beloved member of the Metropolitan Community
of Hartford family. He will be dearly missed and remembered warmly.
While our loss is great, heaven
has just gained a wonderful and beautiful angel.
And, we find comfort in knowing that someday we will
meet our dear friend again.
