Born on August 16, 1923 to the late Morris and Margaret (Zambino) Panebianco in Lawrence, MA, he attended Lawrence High School. After high school, Louis served honorably in the US Army during WWII. A highly decorated soldier receiving most notably the Purple Heart and the Chevalier of the Legion, in which he was awarded by French Presidential Proclamation in 2012, he fought gallantly in Northern Africa, Italy and the Rhineland campaigns. After his discharge from the military, Louis worked for Raytheon as an engineer until his retirement. A lifelong devout Catholic, he was a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Elks Lodge, the Disabled American Veterans and loved golfing. A man who was known for being very assertive, loyal, and extremely independent, Louis was a self-made man who was the beloved patriarch of his family. Believing in the value of completing his education, Louis completed all of his requirements and received his high school diploma at the age of 93. He loved spending quality time with his family, from enjoying a simple meal to hosting Manhattan Night’s every Friday evening. Louis was a selfless man who had many routines and always brought a smile to everyone’s face. He will fondly be loved, cherished and missed by all.

He is also survived by his children; Joan Fiato of Billerica, Rosemary Doyle and her husband Jeff of Malden, Larry Albain and his wife Chris of Florida, and Peter Galluzzo and his wife Sandra of Arlington.
