Louis Eacovalle, 84, of Lebanon Township, NJ, passed away at St. Luke’s Hospital on Tuesday, July 9, 2024. Lou was born on October 21, 1939, in Teaneck, NJ, to parents Louis and Theresa Eacovalle. He was the youngest of 6, with 5 older sisters and grew up in Dumont until ultimately establishing roots in Hunterdon County. Lou served with honor in the United States Army from 1961 to 1964 and the reserves until 1969. He married the love of his life, Joan (Lambert) Eacovalle, on August 28, 1965. Together they raised 3 wonderful daughters Amy, Erin, and Gina. Lou worked as a subrogation and claims specialist for Selected Risks Insurance and CNA Insurance for many years until his retirement. He and Joan then split their time between their homes in Lebanon Township and Myrtle Beach, SC. Lou loved golf, and his ‘Southern Family’ and could be found on the golf course on any given Sunday. A family man and active in his community, Lou was integral in helping form the Lebanon Township Athletic Association (LTAA), still in existence. He was a huge fan of all sports at Voorhees High School and worked on the chain gang for home football games for many years. He also served on the BOE for North Hunterdon and Voorhees High Schools in the early 90s. For more than 20 years, Lou volunteered alongside Joan at the Somerset County Special Olympics. He was an active member of St. John Neumann’s Roman Catholic Church in Califon, where he was a Eucharistic Minister and served roles in multiple church functions. Lou loved spending time with his family and went to as many events and athletic games as he could, not only for his daughters as they grew up but also for his 4 grandchildren whom he adored.

Lou is survived by his daughter Amy Schroeter and her husband Mattias, daughter Erin Cookson and her husband John, daughter Gina Evans and her husband Joe, grandchildren Kate and Caden Cookson and Ryan and Will Evans, as well as many nieces, nephews, and great nieces/nephews.
