Lou Urli, age 76 of Plymouth passed away on June 14, 2023.  Lou was born on July 21, 1946 in Detroit, Michigan to his parents, the late Emma (née Golles) and Oliver Urli.

He is the beloved and devoted husband to Sandra (née Lipka) Urli for 48 years. They were married on September 21, 1974 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Dearborn, Michigan.  He is the loving father of two children – Steven Urli and Michael Urli.  He is deeply loved and will be greatly missed by his sisters Rosanne (Mark) Kidd and Linda (Charlie) Streeter, brothers in law Jim and Tom and sister in law Vicky, and by his loving nieces and nephews.

Lou was the definition of an active and happy individual. He was an early riser and enjoyed taking morning walks prior to his daily gym workouts with friends.  His morning routine set the tone for his active lifestyle.  Later daily activities included bicycle riding or hiking at Maybury state park.  Lou worked for United Airlines for 40 years and thoroughly enjoyed traveling.  He loved Detroit sports and college sports with special interest in football and baseball.  He was an avid photographer as well.  Lou’s eye for photography allowed him to capture and share beautiful local sunrises, desert sunsets, and dramatic ice covered lighthouses on the Great Lakes.  Lou was a United States Army veteran actively deployed during the Vietnam war.  Another one of Lou’s hobbies was studying world Military History with an extra focus on World War II and Vietnam war history.  He was often thrilled to share lessons that countries and leaders learned throughout world military history with his friends and loved ones.
