I worked with Louie at Fruehauf Trailer in Avon Lake in the late 60’s. He was a kind & gentle person. I remember when my husband & I were first married, Louie knew that we played golf & knew which course we always played. He learned of a contaminated water alert at this particular course & called us to see if we knew of this & had we consumed any of the water. May God give you strength during this difficult time.
