Louis PITOSCIA, Wrestler And Actor (1928-2005)
King-size regular on The Wayne and Shuster Show first used his strength to deliver bananas around Toronto and then took up grappling. Later, he switched to acting but was, in truth, 'hired for his appearance. He didn't have to do anything. He'd just stand there'
By Danny GALLAGHER, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, November 21, 2005, Page S11
Toronto -- Omnipresent, long cigars, fedoras, a booming voice, a hulking mass, wrestling and The Wayne and Shuster Show -- that was Louis PITOSCIA.
When his brother visited him in hospital in the waning days of his life, the person Mr. PITOSCIA most mentioned was Johnny Wayne. Together with Frank Shuster he had appeared on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation comedy show until 1990 and along the way had provided a regular supporting roles for Mr. PITOSCIA.
Before he got into wrestling and acting, Mr. PITOSCIA was a blue-collar worker who had been employed for many years in the banana-export business with his brothers James and Tony and with their Italian-immigrant father, Carmen. After school and on weekends, he would help sell Central American bananas out of the family home in mid-town Toronto. After he finished school, he delivered the fruit to stores throughout the Toronto area. The business is still run by family members today.
When wrestling beckoned, Mr. PITOSCIA soon vacated the family business. For a few years in the 1940s and 1950s, he relished his new career and performed in such venues as Buffalo, Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto and other spots in North America.
"Lou wrestled mostly in preliminary matches, not main bouts," recalled Canadian wrestling legend Gene KINISKI.
"Lou was a bad guy in the ring," his brother James PITOSCIA said, laughing.
"He took me a lot to his wrestling matches at Maple Leaf Gardens," his sister Lucy said. "He'd sit me in the front row all the time and tell me, 'Now, don't you move from there.' He was a wonderful guy. I miss him so much. He loved everybody and everybody loved him. He was good to everybody -- especially the kids at his matches."
The bad-guy image in the ring was one he milked to the maximum he also milked it in his career as an actor. With a 60-inch chest and 48-inch waist, he was a big, burly man of 6-foot 2-inches who reached close to 300 pounds in his heyday as a wrestler. It was a weight he carried to the end of his life. A predilection for long cigars and rum-and-coke drinks completed the picture.
The transition from wrestling to acting was a natural one because, for him, wrestling was like acting. His interest in acting got started in the early 1950s when American wrestler Mike Mazurki jumped to Hollywood and invited Mr. PITOSCIA along. Mr. PITOSCIA hung around California for only three weeks -- just long enough to land a small role in the Bob Hope movie My Favourite Spy.
"I was sort of a hood in My Favourite Spy. I got killed," Mr. PITOSCIA told the Toronto Star in 1960. "Anyhow, that experience gave me confidence in my hidden talents."
As it happened, however, he had no interest in remaining in Hollywood or in the U.S., for that matter. He wanted to stay in Canada and earn his trade as a Canadian -- just like Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster.
"Lou was a great actor on the Wayne and Shuster Show," Mr. KINISKI said. "If the producers were looking for a fairly big role for someone on the show, Lou pretty well had it sewn up. He had some wonderful roles."
Mr. PITOSCIA's tenure with the Wayne and Shuster Show included some appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show which required him to go to New York for tapings.
"The time I was on The Ed Sullivan Show, I had to get knocked through a lousy brick wall," Mr. PITOSCIA told the Toronto Star. "Out of my pay, they took 53 bucks, tax. Fifty-three bucks they charge to let you fall through a crummy wall."
Fellow Wayne and Shuster regular Don Cullen hailed Mr. PITOSCIA as the "Great Wall of China" and recalled the episode in which he had to lean his head on Big Lou's massive frame. "I'm a small man and I looked ridiculous leaning on him."
To Tom Harvey, another Wayne and Shuster Show regular, Mr. PITOSCIA was not always the menacing type that he was cracked up to be.
"He was a big, tough guy outside but he was very soft inside. He was a baby," Mr. Harvey said in an interview. "Not to be detrimental in the theatrical sense, Lou was not really an actor. He was hired for his appearance. He didn't have to do anything. He'd just stand there. He was untheatrical in reading a line but he was a funny, lovable guy."
Actor Alfie SCOPP recalled a rather threatening experience during which they taped an episode of the 1959 television series Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Ottawa and Mr. PITOSCIA took his role and strength a little too seriously.
"I was the derelict bum with a drinking problem and Lou was the muscle man for the mob," Mr. SCOPP recalled. "The script called for him to catch me and choke me. He was such a big man and he wasn't just acting in this scene."
Mr. SCOPP said his air was cut off and he began to choke. "I began to lose my grip on reality. The director finally noticed what was happening and two guys had to pull Lou off me. He apologized a lot to me afterward."
In 1990, Johnny Wayne died. The end of the Wayne and Shuster Show signalled a drop in work for Mr. PITOSCIA. He had just three film roles in the 1990s, one in the feature film Baby on Board. His last roles were as as Gato Ciccone in Snow on the Skeleton Key (2003) and as Calzino in Moss (2004).
Along the way, Mr. PITOSCIA played roles such as a thug, gangster and prisoner, when he wasn't involved in a side job in hotel security in Toronto. He posted semi-regular appearances in a number of television series, including Adderly, Robocop, SCTV Network 90 and Seeing Things. Perhaps his best-known movie was Moonstruck, the popular 1987 film by Canadian director Norman Jewison that starred Cher and Nicholas Cage. He was seen, too, in a number of commercials, notably for Shell Oil Co. He also made a United Way commercial -- as a wrestler.
Louis (Big Lou) PITOSCIA was born November 11, 1928, in Toronto. He died July 28, 2005, in Toronto of a lung ailment. He was 77. He was buried with some of his favourite cigars. He is survived by his brother James and sister Lucy.

Body found in river believed that of boy, 6, missing from beach
Canadian Press
Wasaga Beach -- A body found yesterday in the Nottawasaga River is believed to be that of a missing six-year-old Toronto boy, provincial police said yesterday.
"At this time, police believe it is the missing six-year-old, but we cannot be 100 per cent sure until we finish our post-mortem," said Const. Mark KINNEY said of Ontario Provincial Police.
The post-mortem was to be conducted today, he added.
But KINNEY said a pair of camouflage swimming shorts found on the body matched the detailed description of the shorts Terrence THANHTAIK was last seen wearing, which led police to believe they had found the boy.
The boy was last seen around 4 p.m Saturday afternoon at the east end of the beach at Wasaga Beach Provincial Park.
KINNEY would not give details of the body's condition or possible cause of death, but said the body was found in the water.
The grim discovery ended an exhaustive search for the boy in this resort area over the weekend where boats scoured area waters.

Centre Line Road crash leaves 2 dead
Speed, alcohol and lack of seatbelts all factors police say
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Page 1
Two people who died in a two vehicle crash in Clearview Township early Wednesday morning weren't wearing their seatbelts.
Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police said the crash, which took place around 1: 40 a.m., involved a truck and car on Centre Line Road, just north of County Rd. 9.
Investigators said a 2002 Ford pickup, heading south, sideswiped a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier that was northbound.
The truck subsequently rolled and its three passengers were ejected. None of them were wearing seatbelts, police said, adding they suspect speed and alcohol were factors in the incident.
The driver of the Ford, Kelly PERKIN, 27, of Stayner, was pronounced dead at the scene and two other occupants were transported by ambulance to Collingwood General and Marine Hospital.
Daniel HOULE, 23, of Stroud, died at G&M. HOULE is a former resident of Stayner. Mary MILLIGAN, 25, of Wasaga Beach, was treated for what police are calling minor injuries and released.
The operator of the other vehicle, 39-year-old Jacob LALKENS of Stayner, was not injured in the crash, police said.
The investigation continues.
Both funerals are being held Saturday, for HOULE at 11 a.m. at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, 315 Pine Street, Stayner; and for PERKIN at 1 p.m. in the chapel at Carruthers and Davidson Funeral Home, 7313 Hwy. 26, Stayner. Visitations were set for 6-9 p.m. Friday at Carruthers and Davidson Funeral Home.
Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark KINNEY, in a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon, said the mishap serves as a reminder about why people should buckle up.
"Studies have proven you are more safe if you are secured inside a vehicle and something happens," he said.
Last week's incident falls on the heels of a similar story that took place on August 12. Melissa GOMEZ, 21, of Toronto, died after the GMC Envoy she was a passenger in lost control on Highway 400, near Highway 89, and was struck by a Ford 500.
GOMEZ wasn't wearing a seatbelt at the time and later died at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

This didn't need to happen: driver
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
The Driver of the Chevrolet Cavalier that was sideswiped by a Ford truck on Centre line Road last week said he is sorry for the injury and death that followed, adding none of it needed to happen.
"I know it was not my fault, the police told me, but I feel sorry for the victims and their families," Jacob LALKENS of Stayner told The Sun.
Kelly PERKIN, 27, of Stayner and Daniel HOULE, 23, of Stroud were killed as a result of the crash.
Mary MILLIGAN, 25, of Wasaga Beach, was injured but not seriously.
All three were riding in the Ford truck -- PERKIN driving -- as it went south on Centre line Road.
LALKENS said he was driving home from Honda in Alliston, when the two vehicles collided around 1: 40 a.m. on Wednesday
The production worker who lives on Weir Street said he's been employed at the automotive plant for three years and made the drive on numerous occasions without any problem.
"I was just before the top of the hill and they came over and hit me. There was no time to react," LALKENS said. "After I just stopped. I didn't expect what happened."
None of the truck's occupants were strapped in. PERKIN was ejected when the vehicle entered the east ditch and rolled. HOULE and MILLIGAN were also tossed from the vehicle.
"I picked up my cell phone and called 911, got out and walked back there. At first I didn't see them. (I found out) there were already witnesses: paying attention to them," LALKENS explained.
He said the whole incident was "weird" and that he didn't want to talk any further about what transpired.
Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police Mark KINNEY said traffic investigators believe speed and alcohol also contributed to the crash.
Police are continuing to look into the matter.

Crash kills village man
Funeral held Tuesday, police continue investigation
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 1
Funeral Services for 20-year-old Christopher DAY of Creemore, killed Friday night when his car struck two horses on Fairgrounds Road, took place yesterday afternoon.
Mourners gathered at Fawcett's Funeral Home on Mill Street in Creemore to pay their respects.
"This is very unfortunate. Words can't say how I feel," Muriel DAY, Christopher's 73-year-old grandmother, told The Sun on Monday. "I've seen so many people die from this town over the years."
The crash which claimed DAY's life took place around 10: 40 p.m. Friday night. Huronia West Ontario Provincial Police Const. Mark KINNEY said that DAY was traveling northbound on Fairgrounds Road, about 1.3 kilometres north of County Rd. 91, when his black 1999 Pontiac four-door struck the two horses.
Someone from a home on Fairgrounds Road, KINNEY noted, called in the crash to 911 operators who dispatched emergency personnel.
"He'd left here to pick up his girlfriend from work at Tim Hortons in Collingwood," DAY said of her grand_son, who for the last couple years lived with his grandparents at their Jardine Crescent home in Creemore.
KINNEY said paramedics transported DAY to Collingwood General & Marine Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police were at the accident scene until almost 5 a.m. Saturday morning, investigating what transpired.
There was no information available Monday about how the horses got loose, who they belonged to or whether the owners will be charged.
DAY was the only son of Gwen DAY, who lives in Collingwood with her common-law partner Ron GROVES.
DAY's grandmother said he attended elementary school at Nottawasaga-Creemore Public School and later transferred to Admiral Collingwood Public School. He also went to Collingwood Collegiate Institute and Stayner Collegiate Institute.
Lately DAY worked nights at a New Lowell company building house trusses. But, his grandmother said, his real ambition was to become a chef. She said he did work briefly at the kitchens of some local resorts but left to find better paying employment.
DAY talked about attending a cooking program at Toronto's George Brown College some day, she noted. "That was his ambition -- but it's gone now." Another area of interest was computers.
"He was excellent with using a computer. He had a real knack he could make it talk to him," his grandmother said.
Police continue their investigation.
The family said that donations in memory of DAY can be made to any charity.
DAY was cremated and burial took place a Creemore Union Cemetery.

Boy found dead near Wasaga Beach
Suspected drowning victim believed by police to be missing six-year-old
By Joe FRIESEN, Monday, July 25, 2005, Page A11
Police discovered a body in the Nottawasaga River yesterday, a few hundred metres from the crowded beach where a six-year-old boy went missing Saturday during a family outing.
Constable Mark KINNEY of the Ontario Provincial Police said the body is believed to be that of Terry THANHTAIK of Toronto. The boy's parents were expected to formally identify the body last night before a postmortem is conducted.
The boy is believed to have drowned.
"There's nothing that we've found so far that would lead us to believe there's foul play, but we don't rule out anything until we're 100-per-cent sure," Constable KINNEY said.
Terry and his parents arrived at Wasaga Beach Provincial Park with a number of Friends and family for a day of sun and sand, as they often did in the summer. The beach was crowded, and Terry, who was an only child, was in and out of the water all day. His parents said they last saw him on the beach at about 3: 45 p.m. At 4 p.m., they called police to report him missing.
"He was on the beach, and the next thing, he was gone," Constable KINNEY said. "It wasn't like he was way out in the water."
There was an onshore breeze that day, and the waves were less than a metre high. Terry had taken some swimming lessons, Constable KINNEY said.
"The information we got was that he was taking swimming lessons, but I don't know to what extent."
There were no lifeguards on duty at the beach, which is about two hours north of Toronto and often filled with hundreds of people on summer weekends.
The body was found around 2: 30 p.m. yesterday by a searcher from the Ministry of Natural Resources, one of several agencies called in to assist with the search.
Constable KINNEY also said that 200 people dressed as soldiers for a battle re-enactment joined the search on Saturday, combing the town for clues. A water search went on through the night, with searchers feeling their way along the lake bottom in the dark.
This is the latest in a series of child drowning deaths in Ontario this summer.
Last month brothers Larry LE, 9, and Calvin LE, 7, drowned at Belwood Lake near Fergus, Ontario, in an incident that left a third brother in serious condition.
Also this summer, a 15-year-old drowned at a lake near Cambridge, Ontario; a 12-year-old died in a pool in Mississauga; and a six-year-old drowned at a beach in Huron County.
Figures released last week by the Canadian Institute for Health Information indicate that almost 500 Canadians drown every year, almost half of them young children. It is the second-leading cause of accidental death in children under the age of 5, behind automobile accidents.
On an average summer day in Ontario, seven people are treated in an emergency room for a water-related injury, the Canadian Institute for Health Information study said.
"For every child that drowned in 2002-2003, there were six to 10 more who almost drowned and required hospitalization," Margaret KERESTECI, manager of clinical registries at Canadian Institute for Health Information, said in a release last week.
"When you take into account that one in four children in Ontario who experience near drowning sustains permanent brain damage, you start to get an idea of how vital it is to make water safety a priority."
