    Louis E. Guerrina, 68, died peacefully on September 13, 2011 at his home in Cochranville, PA surrounded by his family. His childhood was spent in Philadelphia and Kaolin, PA, and he was a graduate of Salesianum School and Spring Garden College. Louis retired in 2008 from I.D. Griffith, Inc, a mechanical contracting company in Wilmington, DE as President and Owner after 35 years of dedicated service.



    Louis participated in many organizations and endeavors but always made time for those who sought his counsel in life, love, personal and professional matters or simply needed a helping hand. Giving of himself was a priority in his life and provided him the most joy. He was a champion trap shooter, avid hunter and supporter of land conservation and preservation. He spent much of his spare time on his beloved property where he created a beautiful parkland that is cherished by his family, friends and neighbors and will serve as a perpetual legacy of his spirit.



    Louis is survived by his wife of 44 years, Carolyn Shively Guerrina, son Michael, daughter Karen, son-in-law Grant DeCosta, grandson Luke, parents Louis Elmer and Mary, sisters Marie Guerrina and Rita Tattersall, brother-in-law Tom Tattersall, and uncle Joseph Olivieri.



    A life member of the NRA, Louis was also an active member of the Delaware Contractors Association, American Trap Association, Atglen Sportsman's Club, Oxford Gun Club (former president), Runnymeade Gun Club, Ducks Unlimited, Buck & Doe Trust, Southern Lancaster County Gun Club, Richardson Park Sportsman's Club, New Holland Rod & Gun Club, Prince of Piedmont Lodge, Italian American Citizens League of Kennett Square, St. Malachi Catholic Church, and the Londonderry Township Planning Commission. He actively supported the Brandywine Conservancy, S.A.V.E, Longwood Gardens, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Misty of Chincoteague Foundation, Havre De Grace Decoy Museum, Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, and Cheshire Hunt Conservancy.



    You are invited to visit with his family and friends from 6:00 to 8:00, Friday evening, September 16, 2011, at the Foulk & Grieco Funeral Home, 200 Rose Hill Road, West Grove, PA. His Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00, Saturday morning, September 17, 2011 at St. Malachi Catholic Church, 76 St. Malachi Road, Cochranville. Burial will be in the adjoining Church cemetery.



    In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to: Brandywine Conservancy, P.O. Box 141 Chadds Ford, PA 19317 or St. Malachi Catholic Church, ? Our Lady of Consolation Church, 603 West Second Ave., Parkesburg, PA 19365.

    I had the pleasure of knowing and shooting with Lou.

    He was a fine man who always had a kind word.

    He indeed will be missed.

    May God rest his soul.

    Adios, Dirk
