Louie and I both lived at Towers dorm our first year at WVU. We became close friends. Louie always said he passed freshman English because of me, but I doubt that. I did help him study it. Didn’t keep in touch, but a couple of times, he called and we spoke for hours. It was as if we’d spoken regularly. He was devoted to his mother, and I know his passing is a heartbreak. Lou will live in my memory, and in many others. A special guy.

Lou was such a great fellow. I will always remember his smile and the fact that he always made me laugh and encouraged me to be my own person. I am so sorry that I did not know of his passing in time to come to the viewing. I know you all loved him very much and I am so sorry for your loss. He will be missed.

I was so sad to hear of Lou’s passing. I’ve gotten to know Lou over the last thirty years and to know him is to love him. As he styled my hair, we had the opportunity to talk about our lives and families. It was amazing how many acquaintances we had in common. Lou always had interesting stories to tell and good advice for raising my teenage sons. I will miss Lou so very much. My deepest sympathy to his mother and the Seabright family.

During the first few months of freshman year at Central we all joined Sodality groups. The boys had their own and the girls had theirs. The boys and girls were separate back then, so the only boys I knew personally were the ones I went to grade school with. Our Sodality groups met after school. After the very first meeting was over, I came out of the room into the hallway by myself. There was a coke machine in the hallway. This freshman guy came up to me and said, “Hi, I’m Lou Seabright” and bought me a Coke from the machine. From that point on. after every Sodality meeting he treated me to a bottle of Coke. Now if that wasn’t one of the sweetest gestures! But, that was Lou!
