Obituary for Louis Joseph LaCroce

Louis Joseph LaCroce, 93 of Newtown, passed away peacefully at Regional Hospice in Danbury on December 26, 2019.

Louis was born on December 14, 1926 in New Rochelle, New York, the son of Giuseppe and Maria LaCroce. At seventeen, he enlisted in the US Army and served as a paratrooper in the 11th Airborne division with postings in the Philippines and Japan. Louis’s passion for military history and devotion to preserving the memories of our veterans’ service and sacrifice translated into his continual efforts to research and detail individual veteran’s service history on behalf of their surviving families. Louis had completed over 60 of these individual military service histories for friends and acquaintances at the time of his passing.

During his professional career, Louis held manufacturing management positions at ceramic capacitor manufacturer, Vitramon, and a controller position at specialty printer Swan Engraving. He was remembered by co-workers as “a gentleman, a friend, and a nice guy to work with. Louis also has served for many years on the Board of Directors for the Weller Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides numerous scholarship programs and financial awards to students.

Above all, Louis is remembered as man devoted to his family. No matter what the time, the day, or the need, Louis would always be there to provide support and guidance. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him. Louis is survived by his loving wife Jeannine, his two sons Stephen and Joseph, his daughters-in-law Louise and Teresa, and his five grandchildren Stephanie, Samantha, Marilyn, Alex, and Tyler.

Friends may call at Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main St., Newtown on Monday, December 30 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 pm, with a prayer service at 6:00 PM. Interment with Military Honors will occur at Newtown Village Cemetery, Elm Street, Newtown at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, December 31.

My deepest condolences to the family upon the passing of Mr. Louis LaCroce.

He was my Boss at Vitramon and Micro-Etch Products (Swan Engaving)
We had a lots of good times during our work. We always used to eat together at lunch. He used to go to Deli and used to bring our eggplant pizza hero. I was always keep in touch with him. I used to call at least two times in a year and we had always good laugh and talking about our old days at work. Last time I talked him early last year. I was planning to call him during last November but some unfortunate reason I missed my call. I have been trying several times from March thru now at the number 203-426-4750 but no answer. This was odd and I was very worried. At last I searched on Google and saw his sad demise Obituary.
I will surely miss him very much. He was a truly lovable and kind person. May god give peace to his soul.

Again, I will really miss him and his voice.
