November 4, 1925 ~ October 16, 2011
Louis Paul Corso, of Torrance, passed away in his home on Sunday, October 16, 2011. He was 85. Louis was born in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1925. His family moved to southern California in 1932, where he lived for the remainder of his life. Louis served in the Navy in World War II, and had a successful career as partner in his own accounting firm, but he always said his proudest achievement was the family he raised with his wife Jane. Jane and Louis were married for 47 years before her death in 1998. For Lou Corso, relationships came first. He was a beloved and trusted son, brother, father, grandfather, friend, companion and business associate – someone who always took the time to stay closely connected with the people he cared about. His unfailing support, kindness and fabulous sense of humor will be terribly missed by so many. He is survived by his four sons and four daughters and their spouses, fifteen grandchildren; one great grandson; his brother Vincent; his sister Maryann; and their families. A gathering of family & friends will be held at McCormick Mortuary in Redondo Beach on Sunday, October 23 from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm. The Memorial Prayer Service will be held at St. Lawrence Martyr Church on Monday, October 24 at 10:00 am with reception immediately following. Burial will be at Green Hills Memorial Park on Tuesday, October 25 at 10:00 am.
