I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the family. Your father and I go back many years having been neighbors. I knew both your mother and dad very well. He was such a kind man. He will be missed. I am truly sorry for your loss.
To the Addezio Family, for your gracious acceptance of me into your family activities eg. Christmas two years ago with 17 adults assorted children, 3 big dogs and 2 rabbits- a holiday I will cherish for the rest of my life and now for your kindnesses shown through this most difficult of times- Lew’s decline and final deliverance. Thank you Steve for being my chauffeur. I apologize for being in person for so short a time but I have my limitations. Again my thanks for having me be a part of this large loving Addezio family.
As ever, Elaine Lewis
My husband, Jim, and I want to extend our deepest condolences to the family. Derrinda Powell

Steve, so sorry for your family's loss. Great respect for Mr. Addezio's service to our country and his community in city government and the fire service. Love you Brother.
Love and prayers being sent to you and the entire family. The best part of having known your Dad (as his daughter's friend) is that every memory of him makes me smile.
Lew was a great and special guy. An excellent dining companion at Woodbury Mews and a greatly loved friend.
Dear Stephen, Carol, Jerry and Regina,
Laurel and I offer our deepest sympathies in the passing of your Father. He was a great man and a total gentlemen. He served his community with honor and integrity and his country with valor. Lew was always a pleasure to be with, always had a smile, kind words and and an awesome sense of humor. The world was a better place with him in it - and now his place next his wife, in heaven, will be a better place. You are all in my thoughts and prayers along with your children and his grandchildren. May God Bless and keep you all safe in this time of sorrow. Mike and Laurel Saraceni
Dear Regina, Stephen, Carol & Jerry,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Our families share such a special bond! It's comforting to know that our parents are now neighbors in heaven...and friends forever.
With much love,
So sorry to hear about Lou. I worked with Lou in Camden and our "RCA Group" would meet for lunch at least once a month. He was a great and caring person and will be missed by many. Rest in peace my friend. Dotty Pettibone
Miss and love you Pop!
My dad once told his great-granddaughter Brianna “Life’s a one way trip so do what you can while you can”. She saved this in her phone because it was that important to her.
