Denise and the Mader family. We are very surprised and saddened to hear of Louie's passing. He worked with me several summers painting and worked together on other projects. He was a super guy and a pleasure to be around. We will miss him, but I am sure that his family will miss him even more. With deepest regrets, Gary and Gail Trump, Greenville, Oh.

Tony and entire Mader family,
Mark and I are both so saddened for your loss. We worked at FRAM with Louie, and thought the world of him. He was always kind spoken and a hard worker. We so enjoyed visiting him last Fall at Rest Haven, but knew he was struggling. Such a huge loss to all who knew him.
Praying for Peace to all your Hearts, and Strength for the coming days ahead.
