He leaves his wife, Maria; and three children, Anthony, eight; Elizabeth, seven; and Dominic, six months. He was a positive, upbeat type of person with a vibrant personality.

Educated in his home state of Califomia, he earned a B.S. degree from the University of Santa Clara and an M.B.A. in International Marketing from West Coast University. He began his automotive career at Ford and in 1981 joined Volkswagen. He was director of marketing for VW-US, having started as a district sales manager for VW's regional office in Los Angeles, California. He subsequently held several other key positions in the company, including dealer development and business management manager at VW's Washington Region, sales organization manager at corporate headquarters in Troy, Michigan, and assistant regional manager for the Los Angeles region. In 1986, Lou was appointed regional manager in charge of Audi's Western Region, a position he held until retuning to Troy in March 1988, as director of marketing at Volkswagen United States.

Lou is also survived by his parents, a brother, and sister, all of California.
