Coming home, Gramps carefully washed up downstairs and transitioned from his work as a mechanic to family time. He liked to play catch with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, tossing the ball in the school fields near his Arlington home. He and Grammy had a place on Lake Winnipesaukee for many years. It was there he taught me how to row on a quiet inlet.

While at the dinner table, Lou might comment on the news of the day or a historical event, taking a philosophical perspective. A common theme was moderation, in both action and viewpoint. He would have wine with his meals, but kept to a glass or two; he was wary when Amy and I were proposing an open bar for our wedding. Mind you, his approach to it all was infused with humor and lightheartedness. His jokes were playful, often with witty social commentary woven into the story, such as his quips about being the Pope.

After dinner, he and Grammy would retire to the TV room on a long L-shaped couch. Opera or a show about children might be on the screen and he would read the newspaper. They spent their lives together, and their personalities balanced each other. Lou's adoration of his "Sweetheart" was clear.

Gramps had a steadiness - sometimes firm, sometimes jovial - sourced from a well spring of warmth and devotion to family. His life was blessed and he blessed us.

My takeaway from Gramps is how tender he was with his family. He was forever capable of fixing a car, mowing the lawn or giving his grandchildren (me!) hugs and kisses. Playing catch with him in the backyard, helping Peg in the kitchen and bringing in boxes of food and gifts during the holidays are some of the indelible memories he has left me. His humor reminded me of an odd duck. I still drive the car he gifted me in 2015-2016 when mine broke down. I added the vanity plates "Pope Mobile" in his honor shortly after I received it. This way people can question what exactly that means just like Gramps' jokes used to leave people wondering! Gramps left his mark on his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Not sure you can ask for more!

Dad displayed a strong sense of responsibility toward family, friends and self. He took seriously his role as husband and father.
In his younger years he enjoyed rowing, biking and swimming. He was an avid reader! Dad was known for his sense of humor and his philosophical observations on life. He always appreciated his life and kindnesses shown to him.

My Dad's last words to me while visiting him several days before his passing was "see you later alligator" referencing my move to Florida several years before - always with the sharp witted humor - Skip D'Agresto
