Louie LaForteza

Louie LaForteza of Springfield died March 22 of heart failure. He was 32. He was born June 10, 1975, in California. LaForteza was the owner-operator of People Pleaser. Survivors include his father, Lou; his mother, Beth Rutherford; a grandmother, Dione Pugh; three children, Luis LaForteza, Alexis LaForteza and Sammi Scott, all of Springfield; a brother, Jesse of Ohio; and life partner, Billie Jo.

Arrangements by Andreason’s Cremation & Burial Service in Springfield. Remembrances to the Louie LaForteza children’s fund at U.S. Bank.

You are invited to come listen, learn, talk, cry, but most of all laugh with us at Louie's Celebration of Life – a life which Louie celebrated each and everyday – at Pleasant Hill High School Gym, April 2nd, at 6:00 p.m. (wear your Hawaiian attire).

I could tell you about Louie's 12 years in the Pleasant Hill schools and what he did, but it would mean nothing to many.

I could tell you about his 2 heart transplants but unless you knew Louie, you would never understand the grace and joy he gave every family member, including friends, hospital employees, and roommates during that time.

I could tell you about his work in concrete and how he took pride in any task he did for others, but many wouldn't care.

I could tell you about his building Bad Ass Coffee kiosk from the ground up and how it is thriving today because Louie wanted a future for his kids, but that could seem small also.

What I can't tell you is how much he loved and adored kids – Luis (The Little Man) and Alexis (My Little Princess). That kind of love is beyond words.

I also can't tell you what a great grandson, son, brother, nephew, friend, or mate he was. That, too, is beyond words, but all of these are what Louie always put first. Not things, not money, not time, and certainly not Louie. You were first with Louie.

I also can tell you how much Louie loved our Lord, how he walked with Him and talked with Him, and spent time learning more and more about his Father in Heaven, but unless you can open your heart to this, you will just say, "Oh, that was just Louie."

Who do you know who:

  • Never complained about life's aches and pains – but had them?
  • Always brought joy to everyone – but seemed to not need any himself?
  • Never wanted for anything – but could use much?
  • Always smiled – but had reasons not to sometimes?
  • Never said no to anyone – but asked for nothing?
  • Always put family and friends first – but knew no strangers?
  • Never was selfish with his time – but knew his time was short?
  • Just Louie, "The Light."

I think if Louie could comment on this obit he would say, "I think it's great, but of course – it's about me."

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund in his name, Louie LaForteza, has been set up for his children at the US Bank.

Comment: Hello, everyone, I am doing well here in Salem. I work for the Legislature in the House of Representatives and am having a great time. I never married nor do have any children, I do have a few cats however. I have had a ton happen to me, far more than I have room to post here. I have kept in contact with some of you here and there. If you wish to catch up in person, I posted my myspace and facebook, or if you're in Salem, just come to the Capitol and ask someone for the Chief Clerk's office, they will most likely know where to find me. I hope to hear from you guys, and if not we can reconnect at the 20-year reunion. Crap we are all getting old!! Just kidding!

Message: Hello everyone, I moved down here to Southern California in '95 to work for Symantec in development. I've been spending my time sitting in traffic, surfing, ice hockey, and occasionally going on vacation in far away places. (The NOW picture is from a recent visit to a friend who is working in the Peace Corps in Africa). I'm sure this comment will be dated very soon.. I'm looking forward to the 10 year re-union. I really haven't seen much of anyone since High School except Andrew H. for a couple of years when he was at Cal-Tech, and some chance meetings with people when visiting family up in Oregon.
