Obituary of Joseph A. Louro

 

Joseph A. Louro, 86, of Wall passed away peacefully at home on Friday, October 29, 2021.  He was born, raised and lived in Jersey City, moved to Freehold Township in 1964 and settled here in 2008.   Joe was a career developer who was inducted into the New Jersey Builders Hall of Fame, and was a three time past President of the Shore Builders Association, the only member to achieve that accolade.  He was one of the founding members and past President of the Freehold Township Little League, as well as a parishioner and Eucharistic Minister at the Co-Cathedral of St. Robert Bellarmine where he was instrumental in the construction of the new church.  A devout Catholic, Joe’s deep faith carried him through losing his wife and three children.

An avid Yankee fan, Joe loved playing cards, and had a regular Friday night game with friends from Freehold.  His greatest pride was his large and loving family.  Joe will be best remembered for his sense of humor and the laughter that followed him everywhere he went.  He always had a joke and brought joy to others.   Joe was an amazing husband, father, Pop-Pop, Great Pop-Pop, friend and life of the party - he was the best of all things. 

Joe was predeceased by his loving wife, Frances M. Louro; sons, Dr. John Louro and Dr. Jeffrey Louro;  daughter, Jean Marie Louro; and daughter-in-law, Vickie Lynn Louro.  He is survived by sons, Dr. Joseph Louro and his wife, Priscilla, and Dr. James A. Louro and his wife, Judith all of Wall; daughters-in-law, Janet Devito and her husband, Frank of Clearwater, FL, and Dawn Louro-Shulman and her husband, Greg of Jackson; grandchildren, Joseph Louro and his wife, Cindy and James Louro and his wife, Jennifer, Dr. James A. Louro Jr., Dr. Jack T. Louro, John T. Louro, Jessica Louro, Jennifer Louro, Jake Louro, Douglas Louro and his wife, Cristina, Colin Louro and his wife, Megan, Nicholas Louro and his wife, Halen, Jonathan Devito and his wife, Annie, Francesca Devito, Ashley Louro, Trevor Louro, Kaysie Louro, Krista Louro, Alexandra Marquard, Caroline Marquard, Audrey Marquard and Philipp Marquard; great grandchildren, Joseph, Juliana, Sophia, James, Elliot, Mattingly, Delaney and Sunny; many nieces and nephews; and a legion of friends.
