Louis Stella Jr. 1945-2019
Mr. Louis Stella Jr. passed away on September 11, 2019, at the age of 74.
In addition to serving on the Board of Directors for AHA, he was the clinic instructor for 17 years. Besides the pride he took in his family, nothing brought him more joy than teaching the youth of Andover how to skate. Faithfully on Saturday and Sunday mornings in sub-zero temperatures he was at the "cage" to help grow the game of hockey. He was recognized in 1991 for his contributions to Andover Hockey. Until his death, he was regularly recognized by the kids he taught to skate as "Coach Lou".
Family and friends may call on Monday, September 16th from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Conte Funeral Home, 28 Florence Street, Andover, MA 01810. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday September 17th at 10 a.m. at St. Augustine's Church, Andover. Burial will follow in Spring Grove Cemetery, Andover.
