I worked with Mr. Louie back in 2006 at the food giant in Roebuck. He was so silly and fun to work with. After he moved to work at the food giant in center point I would go and see him outside. I would tell out his name and he would always receive me with a double kiss on the cheek. I'm truly going to miss him may he rest in peace 💔 😢. My condolences to the family.

I knew Louis from my trips to the grocery stores he worked for, Bruno's mostly. Also, we had friends in common at the Plaza Gun & Pawn on Highway 11, Louis was always trading something & it was always a pleasant surprise when we'd show up there at the same time. He was so nice & friendly & we kidded each other about our weapon interest of the day, it was something in common between us. This tragedy shocked me & I hope the Lord is with those searching for justice. Louis was a fine man & God Bless his family. Tommy Stuart

Louis was always happy and silly. I worked with him for years at Bruno's. He was a hot mess! I'm so sorry for his wife and family. One cannot even retire in peace at their own home these days. When violence attacks the innocent it is heart breaking. Peace, Laura Brinkman

Mr. Louis gave me my first job at Food Giant when I was 15. After all of those years we kept in touch and eventually I did some maintenance and carpentry work on his home. He will truly be missed. I don't think I ever saw him without a smile or meeting a stranger. My family's thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time
If there is anything that I can do, please contract me.
