In Remembrance of Louis Guy Cali

Louis Guy Cali

Louis Guy Cali

Forest City, PA April 4, 1946 ~ May 1, 2012 Date of Service: May 4, 2012

 

Louis Guy Cali of Forest City died May 1, 2012 at the age of 66 after a heart attack at his home. 

After many years as a teacher in the Dunmore public school system, Lou retired after a second career in car sales.  He loved German cars and always wanted to ‘go for a ride’; usually gravitating to independently-owned garages such as Monroe Motors.  Lou was an avid Formula One racing and college football fan who thrived on spending time with his six grandsons and his dog Wyatt.

Originally from Dunmore, Lou graduated from St. Paul’s High School (class of 1964) and St. Joseph’s University (class of 1971).  He wanted to play baseball more than study and could ‘hit’ even as a senior citizen.  “Louie” always kept a piece of the 60s and 70s with him and maintained a great number of friendships through his life, never missing an opportunity to ‘hang around’.

Lou is survived by his wife Karen Cali, his mother Molly Cali, his children Cara Kondrat, Christian Cali, Kelli Cali, and Kerri Roberts, and his grandsons Bruce, David, Jack, John, Max, and Nathan.  His father Guy S. Cali and brother-like friend William “Bert” Jordan died before him.

A memorial service will take place on Friday, May 4th at 11:00 a.m. at St. Anthony’s Church, Dunmore.

Guy and Molly were a huge part of my life when I moved to Dunmore years ago from Texas. Then, we discovered that Louie was a huge Texas Longhorn fan. He came by our home one evening during a Longhorn game dressed from head to toe in his Longhorn regalia and watched the game with us. We had a lot of laughs watching him cheer for Texas. To Molly and his family, hold on to the memories. He was a great guy. Love Barb McAllister, Johns Creek, GA.

I remember Louie as a 'happy go lucky' guy, having played baseball with him in Dunmore in the 60's. God bless his soul.

Louie will be missed by many. He certainly had a unique personality and was able to connect with anybody. He remembered each and every student he taught at DHS and he often expressed how proud he was to be part of our advancements in life, likewise we were just as proud for having him as our teacher, Rest in Peace.

Dear Karen,
My very sincere condolences on the loss of your husband. Having been there, I feel your loss greatly. Even though I didn't know him, I got the feeling that he made you very happy over the past years and know you will miss him. There are no words I can offer to actually help you but please know that I care and my thoughts, prayers and love are with you. I have been ill for the past week and unable to make it to the memorial service. God Bless! Carol Jenkins

I consider myself fortunate to have worked with Lou several years at Tom Hesser's. He was a man that you can never forget, something about his personality, and love of BMWs will be with me forever. He seemed to know almost every person coming into Hesser's showroom. It was great just to know him. Rest in Peace my friend.

Louie...I can't imagine life without you. As a newborn child, you held me in your arms during my baptism and for 47 years you were the best godfather anyone could have. You were always there for me and never forgot a single birthday. You were my oldest brother and great friend. You helped to make me a great Beatles fan by sharing your Beatles records with me as a child. We spent every holiday together and will miss you each and every day. God bless you cousin Louie

Met Lou many years ago - we have a mutual friend Eric Jordan. Lou and I always shared our love of autos especially old German cars. I will miss him.
