Louis M. Petruzzi



Louis M. Petruzzi, born on April 25, 1957, 65, of Ventnor, N.J., passed away on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 with his loving wife and family by his side after courageously battling cancer. Lou never lost hope. He had a strong fighting spirit and he made sure he went out on his own terms.


Lou grew up in Waterford, N.J. and was a co-owner and operator of Town and Country Fuel Inc. Lou loved his toys. The antique cars and hotrods he built represent his legacy. One of Lou’s favorite past times was spending time with his buddies at the Atco Dragway and having lunch at the D&S Sub Shop. Another place Lou loved was his new home in Ventnor. In the short time that he lived there, Lou made some great friends that he cherished.


Lou is predeceased by his father, Joseph Petruzzi Jr. and his furry son, Gordon.


He is survived by his loving wife and soulmate, Maryann of 44 years; his mother, Dorothy Petruzzi; his brother and sister-in-law, John and JoAnn Massarelli and Mario Massarelli; his nieces, Leanna Fitchetola (Rocco), Angela Umosella (Jeff) and Nola Massarelli (Raymond); his nephew, Mario Massarelli (Marissa); great-nephew, Milo Massarelli; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.


Family and friends are invited to attend Lou’s Celebration of Life on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Thursday, July 21, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at LeRoy P. Wooster Funeral Home, 441 White Horse Pike, Atco, NJ 08004. A funeral service will begin at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. A tribute to Lou will follow at Atco Dragway. Family and friends are welcome.
