Louis Robert Pisano, 48 years old, of Agawam, MA died unexpectedly on Saturday, December 22, 2018. Louis was born in Springfield, MA, the third son of Richard E.

Louis was a graduate of Cathedral High School and earned his Bachelor of Science degree in communications at Westfield State College. He was most recently employed in the customer service industry where he was valued for his friendly and honest manner by his employer and customers alike.  Known to his family and friends as Louie, he always had a smile and a kind word for all and would graciously assist anyone in need.  Louie was a gentle soul who lived his life believing in the goodness of others.  Louie’s real passion was for film and collectibles. He was the co-author along with Michael A. Smith of “Jaws 2: The Making of the Hollywood Sequel”, a labor of love honoring his all-time favorite film franchise “Jaws.” Lou and his former wife, Dianna Rubino Pisano created documentary fan films under the banner YannaLou Productions. He was a pioneer in creating a worldwide community of Jaws aficionados as evidenced by the recent outpouring of condolences via social media.
