PUIM, Luis " Lou"
Passed away suddenly on Friday, March 10, 2006, at age 48. Loving husband of Maria and proud father of daughter Jade and son Brandon. Survived by his parents Maria and Angelo PUIM; his brothers Tony, Ascenio (wife Joy;) his sister Rita CARVALHO (husband Joe and sons Jacob and Jordon;) and his mother-in-law Eduina DOS SANTOS. Remembered for his joyful outlook and his focus on family, Lou achieved an enviable balance between his personal and professional lives. While dedicating time to Friends and to family hobbies, tending to their scenic home and gardens in Cambridge, Lou also reached tremendous professional heights as Vice President of Marketing at Wal-Mart Canada Corp. in Mississauga. Lou shaped the public face of Wal-Mart Canada, improving its stores, capturing diverse customer stories in his much-heralded television ads, and shaping the company's outreach to Canadians. More importantly, as a 30-year veteran of the Woolco and Wal-Mart organization, Lou shaped the company's private face, leaving his many colleagues and Friends a legacy of friendliness and professionalism, perfectly combined. Profiled recently by a trade magazine as a marketing pioneer, Lou was asked to list his favourite television shows. His response was simple, but revealing: "I don't watch television. When I get home my wife and I just talk." He will be missed. Resting at Corbett Funeral Home, 95 Dundas Street, Cambridge where the family will receive Friends on Monday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Prayers will be recited at the funeral home on Monday evening at 8 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic Church, Elgin Street South, Cambridge, on Tuesday, March 14, 2006, at 10 a.m. Interment will follow at Parklawn Cemetery.
