Louis Joseph Macario, 61, passed away on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at CVPH in Plattsburgh, NY following a long battle with cancer. Born in Ellenville, NY to the late Rose Macario Giovanniello and Louis D. Macario. Lou graduated from Ellenville High School in 1977. He attended Sullivan County Community College, North Country Community College in Saranac Lake and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Laboratory Technology at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. He earned his Masters in Administration at Plattsburgh State University. He proudly served as Laboratory Manager for many years at AMC Saranac Lake, then at Elizabethtown Community Hospital and simultaneously at Moses Ludington in Ticonderoga.

Lou was a devoted father and is continued in life by his daughter, Trillium Moon Mulvey Macario of Saranac Lake, NY. As a loving brother, nephew, cousin and friend he is remembered by his sister Catherine Vega (Macario) and husband Luis Vega of Dallas, Texas and their daughters Victoria and Gabrielle. Also remembered by his brother Vincent Macario and wife Kathryn and their children Erin, Jonathan and Gina of Tampa, Florida. He is also survived by his Wilmington family: Barbara, Jessica, Anson, Russell, Tara and Caillin Mulvey and Rowan Mulvey of Homer, Alaska.

Lou was the grandson of Vincenzo and Laura Giovanniello and Louis and Irma Macario. Lou is also survived by a large extended family including Monica McPhillips of Sarasota, FL., Fran Sovak of Ellenville, N.Y., Nick Giovanniello of Napanoch, N.Y. and Michael Giovanniello of Tacoma Park, Maryland, as well as many life-long dear friends.

He was an enthusiastic follower of The Grateful Dead and enjoyed attending and volunteering at Blue Grass festivals. Lou easily made lasting friendships, loved canoeing, long distance cycling, camping and living in his Adirondack home.

Went to North Country with sweet Lou, one weekend a friend and I borrowed Lou's car to go to the store for beer and ended up going to Montreal for Bradors returning 6 hours later. For the next 40 years Lou and I laughed about what I told him when we got back. "Lou you F***** up you trusted us....gonna miss seeing him in Lake Placid every year RIP buddy

From the early days of making ice in your grandfathers ice house, to our high school play "Anything goes" to eating Chinese and French onion soup at 2:00am, to making pizza at pizza hut, to living together in Warwarsing, to Plattsburgh visits, to retreats in the Adirondacks, to the branding of Volley All, our pool favorite, to musical concerts are just a few of the great memories, laughter and conversation we had over these past 50 years. RIP, you may be gone but never forgotten!
