  13. Fred Novotny condolence:

    Some of my most treasured moments were shared with Lou at Studebakers and other notable dance venues in the area.
    He was a man who never forgot a friend and kept in touch with me after I left Chicago many years ago. We shared a love of both bikes and dance.
    I know that Lou is not done, he’s just changed locations.
    Sincere condolences to the family.
    Rest In Peace, Fonz.
