Andover, MA - Louis Stella Jr., 74, of North Andover and Melrose, passed away on September 11, 2019, at his daughter's home in Berwick Maine. Louis was born in Medford, the son of the late Louis Sr. and Mary (Skeers) Stella.
Louis graduated from Lawrence Academy in 1963 and then from Clarkson University in N.Y. in 1968. He and his dad owned Stella Plumbing and Heating in Medford. He was a member of the Plumber's Union Local 12. He was also a member of the Indian Ridge Country Club in Andover and on the Board of Directors of the Andover Hockey Association. In addition to serving on the Board of Directors for Andover Hockey, he was the "clinic" instructor for 17 years. Besides the pride he took in his family, nothing brought him more joy than teaching the youth of Andover how to skate. Faithfully on Saturday and Sunday mornings in sub-zero temperatures he was at the "cage" to help grow the game of hockey. He was recognized in 1991 for his contributions to Andover Hockey. Until his death, he was regularly recognized by the kids he taught to skate as Coach Lou.
