Louis loved the Monday men’s meetings at Melvin’s, riding his tractor, camping, growing his own garden and sharing the bounty with friends and family, riding his golf cart to visit family, sitting in his favorite chair “My Baby” under the carport and “watching the world go by”! He was the best darn welder and friend around.
Pallbearers will be Tommy Douet, David Magruder, Dan Slade, Shane Picard, Bill Amy, and Colby Gary. Honorary pallbearers will be David Picard and Nathan Warner.
Visitation will be held Wednesday morning at 8:00 am until time of service.
