Lou Miccio was born in 1927 in Brooklyn, the youngest of six children.

His dad was a shipwright that worked on the waterfront and the Navy Yard.

They owned their own home on De Graw Street in what is now known as the Cobble Hill

Neighborhood.

 

He attended Brooklyn Automotive High School where he excelled in the study of automotive

Repair and baseball. He was an All City third baseman and was scouted by the Brooklyn Dodgers

 

When he turned 18, he enlisted in the US Army out of a sense of obligation. He felt he had to serve

The Country in the same manner as his brother Ralph and his brothers-in -law. 

He was assigned to Germany and was honorably discharged in 1947.

 

After his discharge, he entered the Automotive trade where he worked for the Packard Motor Car Company and the largest Cadillac agency in the City.

When a friend gave him a used set of golf clubs and a beat-up bag, he tried golf. He became an avid, skilled player. He played till he was nearly 90 and he had a true passion for the game.

He met his future bride at a mutual friend’s wedding.  Lou and Angie were married at St Agnes Church

In Brooklyn in 1951.

 

Angie’s best friend at work Mildred lived in Lynbrook Long Island. After visiting there a few times, they decided to buy their first home there which they did in early 1954.

They welcomed their first child Tom the following year and Mary three years later.

In 1960 or ’61, Lou started his own auto collision repair business in Lynbrook. He was in business for

three years but was forced to close due to illness.

A dozen or so years later while managing the service department of a large dealership in Hicksville, Lou met a guy named Mike and together they decided to go into the auto collision business for themselves.

Mike was more like a brother than a partner and they were highly successful. They ultimately purchased their property and expanded by building a second building on the site.

 

Lou and Angie celebrated the marriages of Tom to Marie and Mary to James. They have five grandchildren: Mark, James, Katherine, Erin, and Meghan.

After over 60 years together, Angie entered God’s Kingdom eight years ago. Lou continued to live in his own home, drive his own car and became an avid observer of current events.

Lou reveled in the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren. He was active in both his Church and his Village. He served as a member of the Recreation Commission for over a decade.

On October 14 th. Lou joined Angie in God’s Kingdom

He will be remembered and greatly missed.
