Louis J. DiChiara, 75, of Orlando, passed away on February 14, 2020 at his residence in Orlando. He was the loving husband of Maribel DiChiara.
Louis was born on May 31, 1944 in the Bronx, NY; son of the late Louis and Catherine (Gompers) DiChiara. From 1963 to 1965, he honorably served his country as a member of the United States Air Force. On April 1, 1967, Louis married Maribel Figueroa. Their family began to grow between 1969 through 1980.
Louis provided for his family through various professions leading to the family’s move to Florida, where they settled in 1989. Louis and Maribel spent the next 30 years expanding and enjoying their time as grandparents to nine grandchildren. Louis’ interests included challenging word puzzles, watching Wheel of Fortune, and Turner Classics Movies. He also enjoyed scratch off tickets and lotto.
Louis was an endless well of knowledge, both silly and informative, as well as the keeper of great stories and events of our family. He was a tough guy with a soft heart.
