He is also survived by his sister Cindy Rosenstock and nephew Zachary, Brother-in law and Sister-in-law Larry and Kelly Haines, niece Kristina, and many cousins and close friends.
Louis grew up in Ewing, NJ. At an early age, he worked with his father and brother at their family owned business, J & D Dismantling Company. In 1968, Louis married the love of his life Lana Haines. Moving to the country and raising his family on a farm was his lifelong dream. In 1983 that dream became a reality when he moved from Yardville to Jacobstown NJ, purchasing the Homestead Farm. There, Louis and his family raised cattle and harvested crops. In 1988, Louis and Lana established DeLorenzo Fuel Oil. Soon after, Louis would be elected to the North Hanover Township Committee, where he proudly served for the remainder of his life. He also served as Mayor of North Hanover for several terms, as well as Police Commissioner, Public Waste Commissioner and served on the Burlington County Farmland Preservation Board. In 2015, Louis finally retired, and his son took over the family businesses where his legacy will live on.
