Louis’s passion was planning bike runs that he and Sharon did with friends. Robert Payne’s bike parties, were memorable, Louis would talk anyone’s ear off that would listen and dancing with anyone and everyone.
His hobbies also included going up river fishing on the lake with Sharon, moose and deer hunting with his buddies.
His greatest love were his sons and his grandchildren, Kali and Bentley who he adored more than life. They enjoyed their four wheeling trips to the camp and snowmobiling in the winter.
Kali will especially miss the beauty parties she had with her Poppie, he would let her paint his nails and put on makeup. He spent his time playing cars and games with Bentley. The love that they shared was special and he will be greatly missed.
Louis, I will miss you with all my heart and soul, 45 years together, we had some really great times. I will miss my biking and fishing partner that I shared so many stories with, your jokes when I was down, which made me laugh. You are now in heaven, with our son, take his hand and keep smiling down at us, you will both always be in my heart.
