Farewell Lou Piccone


Family and friends have farewelled Lou Piccone on Friday at a funeral service in St Therese’s Catholic Church in Bentley Park.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the number of people able to attend was capped, however, about 400 people watched the event on a live stream.

In honour of the Cairns business leader, a road convoy was also held.

It travelled along Robert Rd in Edmonton, past Piccone’s IGA Edmonton and ending at the Gordonvale Cemetery.

Mr. Piccone died in his sleep at the age of 86.
