Mr. Delouise was an amazing teacher, coach, and friend. He took me under his wing and taught me bowling from the ground up. I still have the shoes and bowling ball he gave me! He knew I had a tough situation and wouldn't be able to make practices without help. So he went above and beyond to bring me to and from practices and matches. Thank you Mr. Delouise for being a caring person. I'll never forget all our long talks in the car. You've touched many lives and are someone I look up to. R.I.P.

My thoughts and prayers to the entire family. I remember when Mr. D pushed me to get my Certiport certificate at Woodlawn High School. He always listened and always gave the greatest advice. I am glad to have had you as a teacher.

I’m so sorry for your family. Mark and I crossed paths at Woodlawn and at the CPAs office. I loved his pictures of Colorado and believe he was truly happy in his adoptive home .
We often crossed swords politically but his thoughts were concise and on point. I enjoyed and will miss our discussions.
He was a good friend. May his soul Rest In Peace
Sending prayers to his family for peace and acceptance.

Mr. D was a phenomenal teacher and his class was one of the best memories of my high school years. I met many of my best friends in high school from his Education for Careers class at Woodlawn High School.
