It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our father and grandfather, Louis Pietracci, who left us on October 12, 2021.
Mourning his departure are his children, Linda and Henry Isaak, and John and Lori Pietracci, and his grandchildren, Cara, Court and Caitlyn. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Florence and daughter Lynne.
Lou's long and happy life included employment at Pilkington Glass and at Frontier Toyota. He travelled globally, golfed extensively, and was an award-winning fisherman. Lou pursued diverse interests, including raising tropical fish and cheering for his favourite sports teams. His journey was graced with love and laughter among devoted family and friends. For 96 years, Lou was blessed with a life filled with joy, fulfillment, adventure and peace.
Our father requests that his passing be celebrated with private prayers and fond memories. In accordance with his wishes, no funeral service will be held. His immediate family will honour him in a private memorial, and will hold him in our hearts forever.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society on his behalf.
