Connecticut Republican State Chairman, Ben Proto, and the entire Connecticut Republican State Party mourn the passing of Louis DeLuca, the former Republican Leader of the Connecticut State Senate.
“It was my great pleasure to know Lou DeLuca as both a friend and a leader in Connecticut” Ben Proto said. “Lou was tremendously devoted to his family, in particular his late wife, Alice. His love and commitment to his hometown of Woodbury and Connecticut made him an exceptional leader. Lou was never one to be lacking for words and was quick to compliment when he saw an exceptional idea or proposal and fought like a tiger to slow or stop what he believed was bad policy.”
Lou was the consummate gentleman, strong when necessary but kind and compassionate always. Lou continued to be a source of advice and counsel to many, on both sides of the aisle, long after he left the state senate. All who knew him mourn his passing, but we take comfort in knowing that he is once again with his beloved Alice. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
“Thank you, Lou, for all you have done for Connecticut. Rest in peace my friend.”
