Obituary of Louis Richard Oliva

Born in NYC to Rose and Louis Oliva on December 25th, 1926. Died Wednesday, January 20th, 2021. Beloved husband of Adeline(d), who succumbed two months prior from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease. Devoted father to Michael (Kathy), Robert, Lori and Joan. Loving grandfather to Christopher (Toula), Alyson, Michael and Katelyn(d) and great-grandfather to Emily, Andriana and Alexander. Loving brother and proud WWII Navy Veteran. Louis enjoyed time with his family, particularly the weekly lunches at TGIF. He was a devoted caregiver to his wife for many years, and often sang the old-time classics as well as silly made-up songs to her to make her smile. Louis and Adeline were the first original residents of their building in Co-Op City and were well known and loved by all of their neighbors. His favorite activity each day was to walk to the neighborhood luncheonette for his morning cup of coffee and to socialize with the staff and customers. In his earlier years, Louis enjoyed trading stocks on his computer. He was an avid storyteller, particularly about his time in the Navy. Louis also loved watching old tv shows with his wife sitting in her chair by his side. With everyone’s health and NY regulations in mind, the number of visitors must be monitored.
