Louis A. Nuzzo beloved husband and father

Olean- Louis A. Nuzzo, 61, of Olean, passed away Monday (January 1, 2024) at Olean General Hospital with his wife and daughter by his side.

Louis was born November 02, 1962 in Bradford, PA, he was the son of the late Louis and Josephine Nuzzo. On June 08, 1985 he married the former Barbara J. Gray at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Allegany.

Louis worked at Cutco for many years and just retired in May due to his diagnosis of ALS. He enjoyed golfing and making his own wine, which he learned from his father. Louis could often be found in his smokehouse in his backyard at the grill or smoker. He was always trying new recipes for the smoker.

The biggest accomplishment and enjoyment of Lou’s life was his daughter, Christina. Christina was a very special gift given to Louis and Barbara by the Lord. They traveled all the way to China to get Christina when she was only 5-1/2 months old. Louis was so very proud of all Christina’s achievements and especially her graduation this past April in Dallas, TX., where she earned her Doctorate in Occupational Therapy. Louis got to sit right next to Christina during the graduation ceremony; he was so proud and he smiled the whole day.
