He lived modestly in a blue collar apartment in Delaware County, but attorney and Wells Fargo exec Louis K. Habina will be beloved as a legend, writes William Bender for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The 64-year-old Philly Pops booster and international racquets player died Sept. 4.
“People loved this guy,” said Gregory Montanaro, a vice president at Drexel University and former president of the Union League. “There are hundreds of people coming out of the woodwork. He has a following that’s just massive.”
Louis K. Habina was probably the loudest, most opinionated member of the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. He was also a vice president and senior premier banker with Wells Fargo, and a board member of the Philly Pops, a hulking man who seemed to run on pints of Guinness and Montecristo Cigars.
Habina was an accomplished racquets player in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Oli Harris, a friend of Mr. Habina’s, described him as a “big dude with a pretty big mouth,” but also a big heart. He was frugal himself, but generous with everyone else, a caring, loving person.
