     Louie passed peacefully in his home at Plantation Place on August 6th, 2022. He leaves behind his daughter Joanna (Bob) Hatton, his son John (Susan) Sacchi, granddaughter Katherine Sacchi, brother John (Joan) Sacchi, and many nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, John Sacchi and Lena (Noble) Sacchi; his wife Virginia (Glazier) Sacchi; his brothers, Joseph Sacchi and Dick Sacchi; and his granddaughter Rachel Sacchi.

     At a Christmas party Louie overheard a woman laughing.  Taken with this wonderful laugh, he gathered his courage and found the source.  Before the end of the night, these two people made a date.  Four months later, Louie and Ginny began a marriage which would last 56 years. 

     Louie had many jobs and interests during his life. He began his career as an Industrial Engineer at the Tobyhanna Army Depot in Pennsylvania shortly after getting married.  Prior to this he had been a firefighter; worked with his father as mason;  worked in a bakery where he learned how to make his famous pizza, bread, and a variety of rolls; as a construction worker, where he learned the skills he would later use to build a tree house for his children; worked at a roller rink, where his future wife first saw him; worked at a record store, where he began his record collection, including his prized Johnny Cash tunes on the original Sun Records label.

     Louie served in the Air Force during the Korean War as a medic and later joined the Army Reserves. He was proud to wear both Air Force Blue and Army Green, serving his country for more than 24 years.

     Volunteering ran strong in his heart. Louie volunteered with the Tobyhanna Ambulance Association as an EMT, and as Fire Police Chief with the Tobyhanna Fire Department.  Having been a Boy Scout, Louie also volunteered as a Webelo Den Leader and later, Cubmaster.

     Accomplishments of note were a BA earned from Ithaca College, an MBA from University of Scranton, and at 70 years of age a Black Belt in Taekwondo.

     Louie was a voracious reader, artist, poet, and storyteller.  He enjoyed history, fantasy, fiction, science fiction, comic books, superheroes, records, movies, military history, military miniatures, and dogs.

     Louie loved his family; his wife, two children, their spouses, and especially, his granddaughters.

     A viewing will be held on Sunday, August 14 from 4:00 - 6:00PM at Summers Funeral Home in Meridian.  A service will be held on Monday, August 15 from 10:00 - 10:30AM at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Boise followed by a short graveside dedication at Idaho State Veterans Cemetery in Boise.
