Louis "Louie Val"
March 14, 2021
Dear Brothers, Sisters, Kith and Kin,
It is with a deep sense of sadness and regret that I must report to you the passing of our 45-year retired Member Brother Louis “Louie Val” Valentino on March 12, 2022.
He was born on October 12, 1950 and initiated into Local One on April 24, 1977.
Brother Lou worked at the Metropolitan Opera his whole career.
After retirement he was a regular visitor to the Local One office (prior to COVID), always with a smile and would chat with all that were there. He kept in contact with the office with frequent phone calls of thanks for keeping the union running.
Brother Lou is survived by his sons, Local One Brother Michael Valentino, Louis Jr. and Christopher Valentino, his grandchildren, Nicholas, Arielle, Makayla, Dylan, Anieca, Olivia and Giovanna Valentino.
His sister Rosemarie Valentino, his brothers Local One Brothers Patrick and Joseph. His nieces, Local One Sister Victoria Valentino and Alexis Valentino.
