My brother Louie
Where do I start. He is the second child born of 10. Louie loved penny loafers, his 55 Chevy, dressed in jeans, nice button up shirt, head full of hair neatly combed, clean shaven face but never without English leather. Out the door he’d go on a hot date. Not sure where or with whom, his favorite dance was the “twist”. Song...”Louie -Lou-I. Louie was always busy, making money in different ways.
He had a paper route, I think we all helped stuff Sunday papers.
He cut grass with the old long wooden handle & twisted blade you had to push back & forth.
Louie worked at the gas station with the “tiger”. He loved pizza, moms butterscotch cream pie, cars & sometimes too many beers. He flipped a car on Breckinridge but didn’t know if he was driving. Louie didn’t go to the hospital but the next day was finding glass in his head. Louie joined the army. He came home n went back to work at GE. He even had a business selling drinks & snacks,as he worked. But his “love” was collecting Pepsi memorabilia.
Louie wasn’t one to sit n visit. He was always on the move. standing still he jingles the change in his pocket. Even after he fell and was parilized was told he’d never walk. Louie proved he could move his arms n legs. Nothing could stop him, He was out everyday riding the streets. Visiting friends, eating at his favorite places. Never giving up. Loved the outdoors, flowers n sunshine, driving his Pepsi car to car shows. Getting the attention would put the biggest grin on his face. Just knowing he rebuilt it himself. I know I’ve skipped a lot of great memories of Louie but I know he’s gonna pop up in our minds throughout our lives. God took you but until we meet again. I Love you & will miss you always, ❤️#5
