In Memoriam: Louis Briones
Posted: September 25, 2009
Louis Briones, an applications engineer in the Business Systems Division (BSD), died on May 13, 2009, at the age of 76.
Briones, who held a 1963 Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Adelphi University, joined BNL’s Fiscal Division on March 8, 1999, as an advanced business systems programmer. On June 1, 2000, he transferred to BSD. He became an applications engineer on May 1, 2001.
At BSD, Briones was responsible for quality assurance in PeopleSoft financial systems, working closely with the programmers to ensure that all programs operated as expected. For example, when WebReq, the system used to put requisitions on the web, was first introduced at the Lab, Briones was the lead tester and ensured the success of the new program.
Said his supervisor, Steven Giovine, “Lou was an excellent worker, always pleasant and cheerful, and ready to take on another task or help in any way. He enjoyed joining in BERA activities and the health culture at the Lab. He regularly walked or biked from our building, which is on Renaissance Circle, to Berkner for lunch. He was a good person to work with, and we miss him.”
A resident of Rocky Point, Louis Briones is survived by his two sons, Brian and William Briones.
