    I didn't know my older cousin Louis that well growing up but clearly remember he was soft spoken and always had a  very warm smile on his face and him being a very handsome guy. As children my mom often told us when we get older she hoped we would go to college and be as intelligent as Louis Narcisi!  Love You All!

    I was an intern architect at Interplan Practice Ltd. in the early '80's and learned much from Lou about design and being a quality-oriented architect. Lou was a great teacher and it was at the University of Illinois at Chicago that I first met him in second-year architectural design class. Lou was a favorite instructor for many of us, and it was my introduction to Interplan. Soon after graduation, I made my application to work there and I consider myself fortunate to have learned much of my profession under Lou's tutelage. He was an excellent designer and I enjoyed working on his projects as I could see that every line in the drawing related to every other line, for a cohesive solution to each design problem. He also was a quiet man with a dry sense of humor, and I never saw him lose his temper, except to say, "That will never do!"

    I'm glad to have known and worked with several of Lou and Ann's children. I send my deepest sympathy to the Narcisi family.

    Lou, Thank you for all you have done for me while I was at Inter Plan from 1971 until 1977. you were a Great mentor  and you and Ray taught all of us architectural students what it meant to be a good Architect and to never stop learning and become better at our profession. I still produce construction and design documents the way we were taught at the firm. You even introduced us to classical music and Studs Terkel's talk show. Thank yo again for ever thing!

    Lou & I go back 65 years to our college days at U of I. He was a dedicated student under to G.I. Bill, studied hard & had good grades. Lou had a car and I was fortunate to share gas on trips to and from Champaign. We stayed in touch over the next 11 years. In 1972 he was leaving a partnership in Roselle and joined Interplan Practice Architects where we developed our successful careers for the next 35 years. Our first office in Lemont grew to a dozen plus personnel. After 13 years of growth, we moved in 1985 to Oak Brook Terrace where the firm continues to this day. In 1982, we opened an office in Orlando, FL which has become Interplan's headquarters.

    Lou was my stimulus, my partner, and my friend. We worked well together with respect, trust, and always guided our staff to do quality work for our clients. We had a great run and Interplan carries on.

    With Love to Lou's family - Ray & Irene Chocholek
