On Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022, Mr. Louis Romano, loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away at the age of 89.
Lou, as he was so lovingly known as, was born on April 18, 1933, in New York, N.Y., son of the late Jack Romano and Nancy (Bruno) Romano. In addition to his mother and father, Lou was preceded in death by: his brother, Robert Romano; and his sister, Camille Garcia.
As a proud American, Lou enlisted in the United States Marine Corp when he was 18 years old and served during the Korean War. On Jan. 23, 1960, he married his wife Helen Miele, and they were married for over 62 years. Lou had a passion for American History, sports, cooking, and reading and worked as General Manager for a chain of bookstores in the Hudson Valley, N.Y. Before moving to Mocksville, Lou lived in Brewster, N.Y. and Port Richey, Fla. He and his wife were longtime parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Mocksville. Later in life, Lou was known as being a television aficionado and lover of his felines who gave him great joy. Above all, family was most important to him.

Romano of Mocksville; 2 sons, Alan Romano (Stacey) of Winston-Salem, Roger Romano (Vaida) of Brick, N.J.; a sister, Constance Krejmas (Joseph) of Massachusetts; his grandchildren, Alexandria Romano and Georgianna Romano; a great-granddaughter, Ryleigh Rose; a sister-in-law, Irene Romano; as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
