Louis Philocles Casimir was born on October 1, 1946, in Port-au-Prince
Haiti where he spent all his childhood and young adult years, to his late
mother, Pelina Francoes Casimir and father, Louis Charles Casimir.
Louis P. Casimir later met the love of his life Irma Dieudonne Casimir
and moved to New York City for a small time, before relocating to
Philadelphia where they were married and began their journey of life.
With the support of his wife and family, Louis began his career as a
janitor at 2 Liberty Place for over twenty-five years before retiring. As
much as Louis enjoyed working hard, it was spending time with the
family at large that brought him the most joy. One of his favorite
gatherings was the annual family reunion in Middletown, New York
where everyone came together to do just what he loved the most; have
fun, laugh, and enjoy the moment.
Through all the health challenges Louis faced, he did not allow it to
break his spirit. He remained very independent and self-motivated, and
continued to smile and enjoy family through it all. Louis enjoyed the
simple pleasures of life like driving to his favorite thrift store also
known as (ti-mache), relaxing in the car listening to his favorite music or
watching his favorite television shows like, Wrestling, The Three
Stooges or a good ole Haitian program.
