Lubomir "Lou" Komarov
August 19, 1959 - December 22, 2010
We are very proud of the Lou Komarov Memorial Scholarship which has been established to provide four year scholarships to selected high school graduates.
Lou Komarov was a very special person and an important part of our team for many years. His passing in December, 2010 left a hole in all of our hearts. We wanted to do something to keep his memory alive and decided that Lou would have loved the idea of making a difference in the lives of young men and women by helping them further their education. Lou is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Cherie, and his 3 wonderful sons, Pavel, Christopher, & Daniel.
