Lou Bambach


Louis John “Lou” Bambach

During the early morning hours of April 25th 2014 Lou passed away in a tragic automobile accident on the boarder of Redding and Weston, CT

Lou Bambach was born June 28th, 1972 in Long Island, NY.

Lou is survived by his wife Rose, the Apple of his Eye Kyra and his Second in Command- Caleb. His mother Jane, father John and sister’s Mary, Desiree, Beth and Katie will all miss him tremendously but are comforted in the knowledge that he is reunited with his brother Johnny.

Lou’s life before becoming a dad was one of wild parties, crazy world travels and amazing memories made with his partners in crime since high school, Kenny, Dan, Dave and Berto who he met while attending Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville, NY.

Lou worked at Bridgewater Associates in Norwalk where he made his presence known. He was a very hard worker who loved his job and took it very seriously. He held himself to a very high standard and took pride in his work. He will be sorely missed by his co-workers and friends Brian, Scott, Jesse, Matt and Corey just to name a few. I seriously can’t even list all of his friends as everyone who met him was immediately smitten. He wore and infectious smile and had open arms to hug everyone willing to receive it. He

was an open book and wore his heart on his sleeve. He lived a life driven by truth with a passion only a few posses. There were no secrets with Lou as he was a principled Catholic who lived a Joyous, Loving, and Patient life.

I think the best way to remember him is by quoting some of his friends...

“As soon as I learned of the news, the first thing that came to mind was his smile. His spirit of Joy is one of the most beautiful marks of a life in Christ, and Lou was a pro at it. He could not help it. We would often ask him, ‘hey Lou can you give me some of that’? It is what I will remember most and what I am most thankful for”. (David Mancusi)

“Lou is one of the most amazing people I have ever known and ever will know. There will never be anyone like him”. (Shivonie Deokaran)

“We don’t have to think about any other Saints now because the only Saint we need to pray to is going to be Saint Louis Bambach” (His daughter Kyra Bambach age 9)

‘Lou was filled with God’s grace and upon reflection of his last few months it’s almost as if he’d been preparing to go to heaven. I am confident he was received with open arms immediately’. (His wife Rose Bambach)

‘Lou was just an awesome guy!’ (Quoting anyone who ever met Him)
