Louis V Caserta

Louis V. Caserta, beloved “Dat” and “PawPaw”, passed from this life on May 18, 2024. He passed peacefully while surrounded by family and listening to his favorite Sinatra Tunes. Louis was born in New Orleans, Louisiana to parents, Louis E. Caserta and Frances Conrad. He graduated from Tulane University with a degree in Chemical Engineering, and spent his entire 50+ year career in various positions at Amoco Chemicals Corporation. He also served as a captain in the Army National Guard.

Louis relocated his family from the New Orleans area to Dickinson, Texas in 1959, where he resided until 2022. He was an active member of his community, a life-long parishioner of Shrine of the True Cross Catholic Church, an avid reader and passionate family patriarch. Lou, as he was known by many, never met a stranger, and was often seen browsing the aisles of Barnes & Noble while sipping on his favorite Starbucks brew.

“Mr. Lou” lived out the last two years of his life at Bridgewater Memory Care in Granbury, Texas, being loved on and cared for by an amazing, compassionate staff. He quickly became known for his infectious smile, as well as his love of singing along to the oldies, often entertaining his caregivers and friends with many a serenade. We will never forget the kindness and compassion shown to Lou by his “second family” at Bridgewater.

Louis was preceded in death by his parents and his wife, Catherine Caserta. He leaves behind to cherish his memory his son, Michael Caserta, wife Sue, daughters Stefanie Caserta and Cynthia Gookins, husband Norm, grandchildren, Robert Caserta, wife Kali, Jennifer Bader, Patrick Caserta, wife Megan, Nicholas Stromeyer, wife Justine, and Meghan Jarrell. He had three great-grandchildren, Mackenzie and Tripp Neal and Augi Bader.

Louis will be honored with a visitation and vigil service on Thursday, May 30, 2024 at 5:30pm at Crowder Funeral Home in Dickinson. A funeral mass will be held at Shrine of the True Cross Catholic Church on Friday, May 31, 2024 at 10:30 am, with burial to follow at Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery.

All who were blessed to know Lou will never forget his bright smile, hearty wit and gracious love of life. He will be greatly missed, until the time of our glorious reunion in Heaven. Until then, we will hold him close in our hearts.

Please remember these words of encouragement from the Bible: “Jesus plainly told her: I am the resurrection and the life.
