February 24, 1929 – May 17, 2020
Born in Omaha Nebraska, Louis was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Madonna Cramer Tribulato; his parents, Grace and Frank; sons, Anthony and Christopher; sons-in-law, Scott Johnson and Beniamino Testolin; sisters and brothers-in-law: Nellie Vigneri (Frank), Lucille Drake (Ralph), Joe Tribulato (Helen); and brothers-in-law: Lou Seminara, Ralph McKay. He is survived by daughters: Mary Lucien Lynch (Pat), Anne Marie Cleary (Joe), Barbara Brannen (John), Antoinette Tribulato, Suzanne Vogel (Blair), Paula Tribulato, Carla Johnson, and Martina Tribulato; daughter-in-law, Darla Tribulato; sons: Peter, Matthew (Mariela), Michael and Patrick; sisters, Camilla Seminara, and Virginia McKay; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews.
Louis was the beloved father of 13 children and husband of Madonna. He was a loyal friend and model to his many nieces and nephews and extended family. “Louie” enjoyed spending time with his family on driving vacations, fishing and hunting, skiing in Colorado, boating and water sports, canoeing and backpacking to name a few. He traveled widely with his wife and good friends. He took great pleasure in woodworking in his extensive workshop, making various projects / gifts, and gardening in his backyard. He enjoyed a long and successful career first as a general practitioner in Omaha, and then as an orthopedic surgeon until he retired at age 70.
His greatest joy in later years was spending time visiting with his numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was an active learner throughout his life, always encouraging others to do the same. He was a quiet man with a strong sense of integrity, duty, and honor. He led by example, was dearly loved, and will be sorely missed by those who knew him.
