Founder of Reno’s Louis’ Basque Cor­ner restau­rant dies

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - OBITUARIES/NEWS -

RENO, Nev. - The founder of a pop­u­lar Basque restau­rant that opened in down­town Reno 50 years ago has died.

Louis Er­rigu­ible opened Louis’ Basque Cor­ner a few blocks east of the down­town casino dis­trict in 1967.

KRNV-TV re­ports he died Sun­day at Saint Mary’s Hospi­tal in Reno at the age of 90.

His daugh­ter, Margi, says Er­rigu­ible was born in France on Aug. 25, 1926 and moved to Reno in 1948. He re­tired in 2010 and later sold the busi­ness, but the restau­rant

helped cel­e­brate his 90th birth­day last Au­gust.

A memo­rial ser­vice is planned at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Reno on Aug. 26, to be fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion at Louis’ Basque Cor­ner.
