Default Louis Trinque aka 'No leak Louie' passed away

Monday, 2/8/16, Louis Trinque passed away very peacefully at his home in Union, CT surrounded by his family. He will be greatly missed. He was a true example of what a husband and father should be.
He loved his V-8 fords and all the friends he met through his hobby. Until recently, even though his mind had failed him, he still recognized some of his favorite cars and the parts he used to work on.
The calling hours will be Saturday, February 13th, from 2-4 PM at Introvigne Funeral Home in Stafford Springs, CT.

Gary,
You have my deepest condolences, I had the pleasure of knowing your Dad for many years and your description of his character was spot on. He was always a gentleman and his workmanship and fairness was second to none. May he rest in peace.

Gary,
We are so sorry to hear about your dads passing. He and your family have impacted our lives tremendously. He taught me so much about shock rebuilding and I am trying to have his legacy continue into the future. He took the time and went out of his way to show me the proper way to get the grease under my finger nails. He was a great teacher and very easy to learn from. He was truly a very nice man. Lee and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Sad news about Lou. He rebuilt the shocks in our 46 and spent time showing me his shop and the complex nature of rebuilding shocks. A real craftsman and gentleman. Rest in peace Lou.
