Of Waltham, passed away peacefully Sunday morning February 21st, 2021 after a long illness at the age of 72.

Born on October 24, 1948 in Newton; beloved son of the late Charles Papia and Rose A. (Arcuri) Papia. Lou has been a lifelong resident of Waltham.

Lou attended Waltham High Vocational School; and had been employed as an Auto Mechanic throughout his life.

He loved motorcycles and had a passion for riding anywhere and everywhere on his own Harley. He also enjoyed going Deer hunting as well.

Lou had been a longtime member of the Sons of Italy Dante Algheri Lodge in Waltham and the Joseph F. Hill American Legion Post #156 in Waltham.

His family and his friends were always first and foremost; he cherished the time spent with everyone; especially his grandchildren. He had a special way about him that attracted friends from all over. He will be deeply missed by those who had the privilege to call him a friend.

He is survived by his children Lisa J. Papia of Waltham and Louis J. Papia Jr. of Newton; his grandchildren Jessica Morrison and T.J. Morrison; his brothers Charles Papia and his wife Susan of New Hampshire; Thomas Papia and his wife Diane of Maynard; and James "Jay"Papia and his wife Paula of Newton. In addition he is survived by many nieces & nephews.

Dear brother of the late Carolyn Gonelli.
