We’re heartbroken to hear of Lou’s passing. He was a great friend and we will miss our visits and phone conversations. We “solved” a lot of world problems over the years, never met a more knowledgeable man.

To the St Clair – Golding Family
We wish to express our sincere condolence to the St Clair -Golding family on the passing of their father and Grandfather. It was kind and delightful to be in Lou’s company, and we shared many stories from the past and present.
He was a great conversationalist with many topics: his wartime stories, his careers in the marine industry to his views in politics— he was extremely well read.
He will be sorely missed at holiday dinners in our home. We were fortunate enough to have him celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter dinner with us, along with his other visits.
Rest In Peace old friend,
Ed, Marion, Elizabeth, and Emily Backman
My sincere condolences to Lou’s family and friends.
I only got to know him a short time through our noon hour visits, but he told so many interesting and amazing stories of his life in the military, I will carry them with me.
It was an honour to have known him.
I am sure he is having an amazing reunion with his comrades, and I am positive a donkey greeted him when he arrived.
Rest peacefully, Lou. And Thank You.
Derek, Michelle and the St. Clair-Golding family,
Our sincere condolences on the passing of your father. May you find comfort in all the special memories shared with him.
Thinking of you

My condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of spending time with Lou in Labelle. He would often stop in for a visit and shared many stories. He was very interesting and always liked to have a laugh.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Lou’s family.
Your father was a very kind man who was always willing to lend a helping hand when it was needed. Over the past twenty years he has become a good friend during countless visits and conversations.
He will be sorely missed and our trips to the lake will not be the same without him.
Rest In Peace Lou, it was an honour.
