Born: April 19, 1931
Deceased: June 15, 2008

On June 15, 2008 Louis Anthony Radicia was called to take his place at the Lord’s table. No better place could be set for him than that which was next to his bride of 54 years, Marianne, who was called on April 16th of this same year.

The youngest of five children, my father was blessed with not one, but five mothers. Each of his four sisters, Lucy, Lilia, Virginia, and Rose blessed him with attributes each of them possessed, making my father the well rounded man and father he was. But, it was his mother who gave him a sense of quiet control over almost any situation.

To my mother, Louis was more than just a husband; he was her hero. Louis was strong, proud and full of integrity. Louis never took anything for granted, always seeing well in advance the potential follies or successes of every decision. Many may mark success by the fortunes they reap or the people they awe. My father’s mark for success was carved by the relationship of all he touched in person and profession. You always knew when and where the tide ebbed and flowed.

My father taught me not only to be an athlete, but also to be an ambassador of the game. He taught me to be gracious not only in victory but in defeat. Both, on and off the field, in and out of the public eye, he taught me the importance of doing what is right and standing up for what you believe in.

On June 15, 2008, Father’s Day, the Lord called my father to his side. After many weeks pain and yearning to be with his bride. As he lay there in his passing, I saw him without pain or suffering. A man, lost without his wife, a body crippled with cancer. No longer were these things present in the shell of the man who lay before me. My father’s spirit had finally arrived where the man had so often asked the Lord to take him.

In the wake of his death, Louis leaves behind his beloved son Anthony, his wife Christina and two granddaughters, Ciarra and Chelsea. He also leaves behind his four sisters Lucy Beraldi, Lilia Dignoti, Virginia Caparelli, Rose Turco, and their families. He also leaves behind his sister-in-law Antonie Bañuelos and Antonie’s adult children, Linda and Rigoberto Bañuelos.

    I want you to know that I love you more than anything. I can only hope that you and mom are enjoying the love you so dearly missed in her absence.

    It was my greatest honor and privilege to care for you in your time of need, pain and sorrow. I can think of no better Father’s Day present for me than that of having cared for you and being at your side as you took your last breath in this life and began your new life with mom, in heaven. Being with your bride after so long an absence I am sure was the best Father’s Day present for you as well.

    God bless and keep you both in his loving care.

    I Love You!

    Your Son,


  2. We did not know Louis Radicia well, but we do know his sisters and their families. The love and caring each Radicia has will speak well of the family and the family name. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families of Louis.

  3. We are sorry for your recent loss of your father. I enjoyed spending time with him and your mother. The pictures you posted were very nice. It made me recall his smile and how he laughed.

  4. Tony, I am so sorry for your losses. I cannot imagine losing both parents in such a short time. It is so good that you were able to care for your Dad the last few months as you did. I am sure you are very glad that you were aable to do that for him. It is so heartbreaking that he had to suffer the way he did. It is so unfair. Uncle Louie and Tante Marianne will always have a special place in my heart.
