Lou passed away this morning after fighting for his life for weeks in ICU.

He went to the ICU on the day of his friend Allan's funeral.

He leaves behind his wife Marie and a large family.

I know Lou ruffled a lot of feathers. But his real legacy is the years of tireless work he put into bettering relations between affiliates and affiliate programs. He solved by far more affiliate related issues over the years than anyone else. Because of him, many programs are permanently more affiliate friendly, and countless affiliates have been paid what they were owed.

In the course of the excitement of current events, we forget all too easily to give credit where credit is due.

Thank you, Lou, for all you have done for us and may you rest in peace.

He was suffering from congestive heart failure and recently had to have his heart restarted repeatedly. But his final battle was with pneumonia.

Again, wow. He wasn't that old, either, was he...

As mentioned before, this really puts life in perspective.

You will be missed deeply Lou

His Bday is on August 27 and he was only in his 40s. I was really hoping he would get better and it was a total shock when I heard the news this morning. He was the best boss I ever had and I am grateful for everything he taught me. Rest in Peace Lou.

How sad. Even though we had differing opinions on a few aspects of this business - that is minuscule to the importance of our place in life. My sincere condolences to his entire family. My heart goes out to them. What a shame he had to go - being so relatively young.

Remembering the Professor, Louis Fabiano

A little history about my boss and friend Lou. Miss you big guy.

On August 27, 1963 Louis Sr. and Patricia Fabiano welcomed a beautiful baby boy into this world Louis Joseph Fabiano. He had lots of love growing up, as he was raised by both his loving parents and spirited grandmother, Sabia.

As a young child, he attended Bradenton Elementary. He did very well and always brought home good grades. During high school he attended a military academy. There he learned self-responsibility, leadership skills, and what it means to be a great friend. In his senior year, he went to Palmetto High School where he graduated with honors.

Lou was always an entrepreneur. Lou began a career even before graduating from college. At 17, he started his own marketing business. But that didn’t mean he forgot about his education. He started his collegiate endeavors at the University of Miami where he received a degree in computer engineering.

After college Lou worked for Sonitrol Security. During that time he welcomed his first child, Kara Fabiano, into the world. He later went on to work at Advantor Systems and soon welcomed a second daughter, Nina Fabanio. He excelled in his professional life, but wanted to find someone to spend the rest of his life with.
In his early thirties Lou found Marie, his loving wife. There was an instant connection from their very first date. They complimented each other’s personalities perfectly and were inseparable from there on out. He also treated Marie’s two older daughters, Sandra and Bianca, as his own. The Fabiano family later welcomed a fifth daughter, Aaliyah into their lives.

After their family was complete, Lou was drawn back to his first passion, internet marketing. In 1999, he launched a company that would later grow into one of the most successful businesses in the online gaming industry, Casino Affiliate Programs. In 2009, Lou furthered his accomplishments by forming a new company, Orlando Affiliate Publishing.

Sadly, on August 24, 2010 Louis Fabiano went home to God after fighting a good fight in ICU for several weeks. He will be remembered for a lot of things; his love of laughter and life, his motivation and drive, and most of all his dedication to his family and friends.

I just want to take a moment and ask anyone who can, to help this family through this difficult period in their lives. As an employee and friend of Lou and his family, I have seen first hand how hard it has been over the last few weeks. I still can’t believe that he won’t be there to greet me every morning or teach me all there is to learn about the industry. He was a good man and I will miss him dearly. A fund has been set up for the Fabiano family to help them through this difficult time. Those who wish to donate may visit
