Louis Salz

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Frank C Cosentino on June 11, 2013:

Yes, Lou was my classmate and, yes, we both came out of Essex County in New Jersey from competing High Schools. But it wasn't until we were both back in our home state pursuing our business careers in the late 80's that I really came to know Lou as a dear and trusted friend. To say that Lou was special, would be a gross understatement. We could and would talk about everything from politics to business principals to personal matters. I could count on Lou to tell me exactly what he was thinking regardless if it was contradictory or complimentary to my position.

Lou was generous to a fault but did not suffer fools gladly. His love for his family was foremost in his life.

Too soon we lost a Classmate, but in truth I lost a dear friend whom I admired and loved. Rest in peace my friend.
