  2. Sheri, I’m sending you a warm hug. You’ve always been a special friend to Beth. Spending time with you when visiting her are special memories. Taking me to lunch at CFA. Meeting for breakfast. Taking your Pilates class on Base… well let’s just say I was in the same room!!! Your parents influenced your life in so many positive ways. Hold close to your heart the legacy they left for your entire family. Continuing prayers,
    Aunt Beep

  3. Our deepest condolences go out to Sherri, Kathleen and family. We have known Lou for 33 years when he became our neighbor building his retirement home next to our home in Kennett Square. Our children graciously referred to him as Mr Lou.
    Lou was a wonderful neighbor and friend to us. He often would chat to us when he was outside doing his yard work and then in later years he came out just to chat over the fence about life in general. He lost his lovely wife a few years ago and often expressed how much he missed Rosetta. My husband, Gene will especially miss chatting with him. You were a wonderful neighbor our friend and You will certainly be missed by both of us. Rest In Peace.

  4. I have nothing but fond memories of my cousin ‘Easy’…..beginning in the late ‘50s in Wildwood at his Mom and Dad’s place The Lindy apartment house at Ocean and Roberts Avenue. My sincere condolences go out to Sheri and Kathleen at this most difficult time. With love,

  5. Our heartfelt condolences to the entire Tobia family. As fellow condo owners, we similarly shared many Wildwood seasons with both Lou and Rosetta, and always enjoyed our conversations and time together. Lou always enjoyed the beach, conversing with all of the regulars, including the lifeguards, who all came to fondly know him over the years. We will miss both Lou and Rosetta. They are now happily reunited. Rich & Toby D’Auria

  6. My condolences to Lou’s family. He and Rosetta were longtime condo owners, as were my husband and me. I will miss not seeing him walk by my condo window with his beach chair on his shoulder. He loved the beach and spent most of the day basking in the sunshine. I often teased him about both of us being “1940’s kids.” Lou, I’m already missing you. RIP friend.
