Below is a picture of Lou back in 1959, the first year of football at Paramus.  It seems like yesterday, and now he's gone.  Lou was a great athlete, a friend to all, and an all-round quality person.

Sad news that another one of our 1960 Spartans has died.  Sending sympathy to his family.  I'll always remember Lou for his soft spoken voice, being good at many sports and being a kind person. Rest in peace Lou.

The La Banca Family is Very Sadened  to hear this news he was one of the clan of cousins that spent their childhood growing  up in The Catskill mountains at our Compond (The Whiporwill Cottages) that I  spoke about in his brother John's memory i posted after he passed, I loved to see him in the early 1970's  when he was dating Marcia at my Bar and Restaurant in Bogota New Jersey. he was always a pleasure to see when he stopped by and the 2 of them were definately in Love and destined to be together.


Our deepest sympathies to all the Policastri Family and may god bless his soul  and he will rest in Pease.


Blessings and Much Love from all of us,

The Entire La Bianca Family

I have been finding lots of photos in the Catskills when we were kids.  My Mom had them tucked away!  Some of your Mom and Dad and your family.    When I get finished separating them I will be happy to send them to you

Some of  our cousins will be coming for the service next week. Thank you for your kind words and I will relay them to Marcia.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Lou Policastri, my friend of many years and close companion of the struggles of life. We were teammates in sports through the good times as well as the not so good ones and grew up together from an early age. He was one of the great ones and will rest in my heart and soul for eternity.  I'll look for you in heaven if I get there. GOD bless and God love you as I do.....Stan...
