Louie dedicated his career to the shipping department as a forklift operator at Hexacomb Corporation in Trenton. He was a member of the Catholic faith. Louie had a knack for tinkering around the house and was an avid outdoorsman who found joy in hunting, fishing, camping, and leisurely drives around Carlyle Lake in search of deer. Known for his
compassionate nature, Louie was always ready to lend a helping hand and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need.
