Preceded in death by his parents, Angelo and Carmella (Cacevella) Corletto; and niece, MaryJo Romano. Lou proudly worked as an aircraft mechanic and later retired from WABCO as a core maker and machinist. He kept active during retirement by working as a security guard for Keystone Commons, where he worked into his 80s.
