Gather those candles
Flowers and toasts to Louis Ross, the centenarian with the mostest, for reaching 100 years young. Our pal Louis celebrated the old-fashioned way — with a dinner and party at Perry’s Restaurant on Sept. 8. Louis had his bride of 73 years, Ethel, who is a mere 93, by his side. Along with the love of his life, Louis received accolades from state Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein (D–Midwood) who presented him with a letter from Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. The congratulatory missive acknowledged his dedication and service from his days as a Post Warden during World War II, when he protected the skies of our fair city with the Police Department’s Air Raid Protection Service.
Standing O wishes Lou another 100 years.
