Louis Thomas Alloro

Louis (Lou) Thomas Alloro, 77, of Harrington Park, NJ, passed away on Saturday, January 13, 2024. Beloved husband of 60 years to Leslie (nee Cioffi). Loving father of Lisa Weber of Oradell, NJ, Christine Alloro of Palm Springs, CA and Louis Joseph Alloro of Los Angeles, CA. Proud grandfather of Michael, Casey, Maxwell and Luca, and uncle to many nieces and nephews. Louis was predeceased by his beloved son, Todd, son-in-law Michael Weber and sister Julie Alloro. 

Lou was born in Brooklyn, NY and grew up in New Milford, NJ where he met the love of his life, Leslie. They proudly celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last August.

A sharp dresser and generous man, Lou loved to live big. He enjoyed cooking, gambling and taking epic adventures around the world. He loved spending time with family and friends, and at his best was telling jokes and stories or crafting poems that were sure to have you laughing out loud.

A successful entrepreneur, Lou owned and operated Bonded Basement Waterproofing for over 50 years in Bergenfield, NJ (you may have seen him driving around town with his “NO H20” license plate). 

He was clever, wise and witty, and was sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. As the heart of our family, he will forever be loved and missed. 

Join us in honoring his life. Visiting hours are Thursday, January 18, 2024 from 4-7 PM at Pizzi Funeral Home, 120 Paris Ave, Northvale, NJ.

    Lou was one in a million. I had the pleasure of living across front that wonderful family n Harrington Park
    From the moment we met we were instant family❤️
    Even though it’s been many years we’ve been apart I will always love them.
    One memory of Lou will always be in my mind. It was my 40th birthday. When I got up that morning in my front yard was a big coffin. Sign said Lordy. Lordy. Look who’s 40ty. He laughed so much. That was his personality. Always making people laugh.
    My condolences and big hugs to you Leslie and the family. Lou may you R I P. ❤️

  3. I have fond memories growing up in the Cioffi family. Leslie, Lou’s wife was my Dad’s cousin. My Dad passed in January of 2015 but he would always tell me stories of how close he was growing up with all his cousins. Life has separated most of us through the years, but recently, Lisa (Lou’s daughter) had all of the cousins at her home and we had such a wonderful day together. We all brought a dish. The invitation read, “Join us for Sunday Gravy”. If you don’t know, growing up Italian, “Pasta sauce” was called Gravy (don’t ask me why), so it was very heartwarming for me to see it termed that way on the invite. The beautiful part to this story was that Lou, himself, made the BIG POT OF GRAVY for our get together. It had all the meats, beef short ribs, meatballs, sausage, pork, etc. You knew it had cooked for hours just by the smell and when I tell you the aroma was full of memories of growing up for me. That was who Lou was. A kind soul who loved family and tradition and I’m so glad we were able to spend that time with him, even if it was just for a little while. Thank you Lou for making it special for all of us. That was truly who you were and will be missed tremendously by many. My condolences to Leslie and the entire family. I know your hearts are broken, but heaven is a wonderful place and he is with all of our loved ones, probably cooking “A BIG POT OF GRAVY”.

  4. Lou passing leaves a hole that can never be filled !!
    He was a true friend and buddy and a pleasure to be with. He will always be in my thoughts.
    Rest In Peace buddy, be with God !!!

  5. I had the pleasure of knowing Lou for the last 24, years a class act.
    Shared many great dinners and conversations at Caesar’s Atlantic City.
    To Leslie and the family Regina and I send our deepest condolences, and prayers to the family.

  6. Sending my loving care and deepest condolences to the Alloro family and friends on the passing of a dear man who left a beautiful legacy of love. Holding his memory and inspiration in my heart. Sending my prayers, care, and respect.
