In Memory

Lou Sette








Athletic Hall of Fame Induction
November 21, 2013

Lou Sette - Bob Cortese - Jerry Giampetruzzi





SETTE Louis Frank, born May 17, 1946, stepped out of this life and into life eternal with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at 8:45 AM on Saturday, February 28th, 2015 after more than two years battling leukemia.


Born to an Italian American neighborhood in South Hackensack, New Jersey, Louis graduated from Paramus High School in 1964, where he was proud to be the starting catcher on the baseball team that won the state championship his senior year.  He initially attended the University of Notre Dame before transferring and graduating from Seton Hall and later Rutgers' Law School. His life took him on many travels, including working in radio in Greenville, South Carolina and later NBC television in Cleveland, Ohio where he was a news anchor. 


Later he opened up his own law practice in New Jersey, was involved in the family business located on Sette Drive in Paramus, New Jersey, and ran for the congressional nomination for the Republican Party in the 5th district in 1992.  By far, Lou's pride and joy in life was his 32 year marriage to his loving wife Rosemary, and together they shared countless memories and gave a wonderful life to each other.  Lou is survived by his wife, his son Frank, son Mark and daughter in law Jael, sister Patricia and her husband David and their children Daniel and Mariana.

Lou Sette was one of the first people I met when in the 4th grade my family moved to New Jersey.  I played sports with Lou, was one of his good friends when he lived in his house on Spring Valley Road on the bend just short of Forest Avenue, and spent all seven years at Paramus High School either as his classmate, or in his homeroom.


He was one of the good guys, never boastful of his academic or athletic achievements, and admired and respected by all who knew him.  He was someone that you knew would be successful in life, and was.  Lou will be missed by his friends, family, teammates, and all who had the privilege of knowing him.

I too remember Lou as one of the good guys. I first learned of his illness at reunion and was saddened by the news. Every time I hear of the loss of one of our own or hear of a serious illness it comes as a surprise. It shouldn't considering the stage of life we are in but my memories of our time together at PHS are still so vivid and good that I think I have placed us in a mental bubble where we are forever young.

Lou was intelligent, kind, and a gentleman. My heart goes out to his family for his loss.

Lou was a very special guy. He came to my 4th grade birthday party---and treated me like a queen. We were only 9 years old and already he knew how to be a gentleman. I remember him that way all through our school years in Paramus.

Another major loss to the class of '64. Lou was a true gentleman, no matter what your interaction with him. Lou and I sometimes walked home from the high school when he lived on the curve of Spring Valley Road, and I continued on home to Bullard Avenue. He was just one hell of a nice person. We met up in later life when he became an attorney, as I had become one years before. We had occasion to talk from time to time, and he was the same decent and humble person he had always been. So sad to see our class losing people; and Lou was truly one of the good ones. Rest in peace, Lou.

Such a sad loss.  I always thought Lou to be a real nice guy, gentleman. Rest in Peace Lou, and my sympathy to his family.
