I grew up near Louis and we ran in the same crowd for a while.  He was a good guy.  He had hemophelia and I always felt sorry for him as he wasn't allowed to play any kind of sports.  My friends and I always were playing pick up hoops, football, baseball, backyard whiffle ball, or on warm nights, a game sort of like flash light tag.  Louis would either watch or slip away and go home.  When we got to high school, Louis got us hooked up with another friend who's older brother had a car.  We drove to many football games both home and away thanks to him.

Hey Louis!  If you can read this from up there, I just wanted to tell you I still remember Mr. Garmen and the good times we had there.  RIP.

Louis always had a smile on his face. He was one of the good guys.

This one hit me pretty hard.  I kept up with Louis while he was at GE; he spoke with me while I tried to peddle stocks and bonds, but we always kept up with each other.  Louis was a good guy in school, and what I probably remember most - we always laughed together, and those are the folks you remember most.  I will miss 'wormmie,' Mr. Sturm.

Louis was one of the nicest guys I knew.Years later after high school when I was building my house he personally brought some flood lights over from GE while I was wiring the fixtures and the sun was going down.
