Louis “Louie” Genero Distasio Jr., 69, died unexpectedly at his home on May 17, 2022. Louie was born in Portland, ME the son of Louis Generald Distasio Sr. and Louise Nancy Distasio.

Louie served in the military in the early 1970’s. He owned a shoe shop in the city of Portland in the late 1970’s. He later moved onto commercial fishing and painting as a trade. However, Louie’s first job was being a father, his kids always came first. His children meant the world to him and he meant the world to his children.

Louie was well known and loved throughout the city of Portland. His kids could not go anywhere without someone asking, “You Louie’s kid? I love that guy!” Everyone who knew Louie, and loved him. He had an infectious smile, charming sense of humor, and a heart of gold. He was the one that everyone and anyone would call when they were in need of support. Louie always found a way to make the table bigger so those around him would not be in need. He was a Saint.
