  • Lou and I grew up on Windsor Road in Medford,Ma. He was always active in starting new projects to make it a great place to live.He started a baseball runs pool and went around very Sunday saw 15 neighbors, who enjoyed seeing him. It brought the neighborhood closer together. We played on Medford High Schools winning soccer team in 1948, the same year their football team won the class A championship and played in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville,FL. Lou was a big Boston Braves fan and was very excited when they won the National League Pennant in 1948. We listened to their games on the radio in the old days. Warren Spahn and Johnny Sain were their great pitchers, and the saying went Spahn and Sain and a day of rain. They didn't need the rest pitchers need today. When Lou graduated from Medford High in 1949 his sister moved to Peabody, and Lou had to go with them. His parents were both deceased. Peabody's gain was Medford's loss. Lou probably would have been the Mayor of Medford one day. All the guys had to go in the military back in those days, and we were separated for years. We finally got back together, and when I married in 1959, I asked Lou to be my best Man , because he was. When we both had our families together, we visited for years, and Lou and Betty were wonderful hosts. My 5 kids and their 3 enjoyed their backyard pool in Peabody. I will never forget Lou and our friendship. May God be with him and his family and friends who went before him. Sorry for your loss Louis,Jeanne and Carol. Sorry for the length of this memory, but I could have written a novel about this dear friend. Bill Seitz Melbourne FL

  • Rest in Peace

  • My sincerest sympathy to all of Lou's family and friends. He was an icon in the City of Peabody and truly a blessing to all of the PVMHS sports teams. He was especially supportive to the girls basketball team during my 30+ years of coaching. I believe he played basketball for my Dad at Medford High School and/or had him as a math teacher So we always had a special connection. I will never forget the sports years we shared. Rest In Peace my friend. Jane Heil

  • I'm so sorry to hear of Lou's passing. His blood certainly ran Tanner Blue. I know that the PHS Hall of Fame Committee was so grateful for his support over the years. Sleep well, Lou and my sincere condolences to the Cersosimo family. Jeannie (Hallinan) Johnson
