Louis Donello, 75, passed away on Thursday, September 30th, surrounded by loved ones.

Louie was born and raised in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn,  graduating from New Utrecht High School.  Shortly following graduation, he enrolled in the Army as he fought courageously in Vietnam. After his honorable discharge, with two medals, he married the love of his life, Cecilia, in 1968. Louie was a passionate entrepreneur, always with a new business in mind, and had strong friendships and family support to bring it to life.  One of his most meaningful businesses was becoming highly regarded in the world of sports memorabilia. Working specifically with Don Mattingly of the New York Yankees, their friendship led to Lou’s many more business opportunities shared with his sons, Jerry and Louis.   Nothing was more important to Louie than his family, which he considered his greatest accomplishment. Spending time and being in support of his grandchildren filled his heart with joy.   He will be greatly missed and forever, deeply loved.

He is survived by his wife, Cecilia Donello, sister, Denise Torelli,  children Danielle Papandrea and husband Rocco, Jerry Donello and wife Amanda, and Louis Donello and wife Christina, and his beloved grandchildren, Mathew, Dominick, Isabella, Sofia, Giuliana, and Lia.
