On June 26, 2010 Louie lost his battle with Synovial Sarcoma. He fought the disease with courage and dignity, much in the same way he lived his life. He was 30 years old.
Louie proudly worked at his family business, Peninsula Sanitary Service Inc. at Stanford University for 15 years.
Louie is predeceased by his mother, Cynthia (Wales) Pellegrini. He is survived by his wife, Kelli Ortmann Pellegrini, his father Louie Pellegrini III, stepmother Bonnie, brother Andrew and sister Gina. He is also survived by his Grandparents Dave Wales, Howard Beck, and Vera & Louie Pellegrini II. Louie also leaves behind numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
We are all saddened by his passing, but most grateful for his life and for his love for all of us.
Donations in Memory of Louie can be made to one or both of the following organizations
Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative - http://sarcomahelp.org/donations.htm. National Rifle Association Foundation - https://www.nrafoundation.org/giving/donate.asp (In the “I wish my donation to support the” drop-down box, please select “Hunting & Wildlife Conservation Endowment”). Both websites give you the opportunity to identify the donation in memory of Louie Pellegrini IV. The family will receive confirmation of your gift.
A memorial service will be held on July 16 at 4:00 pm at the Stanford University Memorial Church, Stanford, CA.
