It is with deep sadness and a great sense of personal loss that I inform you of the passing of Lou Guerriero.
Lou was a World War II veteran who served our great country in its time of greatest peril. He served the American Legion on the Post, County, District, Department and National levels culminating in his election as Department Vice Commander for the Department of New York. Lou was an integral part of Richmond County where he served as its leader for many years.
