Louie was employed at Dow Chemical for 37 and half years before retiring. He was also a self-employed electrical contractor and then became a building and electrical inspector and building official.
He was a member of the Farwell United Methodist Church for 61 years, a church youth leader, a scoutmaster in Boy Scouts of America, and a member of the Farwell Labor Day Committee. An avid hunter and fishermen, he often boasted there wasn’t a road in Clare County on which he hadn’t taken a deer or wired a house. He was happiest when he was able to help someone.

He is preceded in death by his parents, son Shannon, and sister Sadie Gingery.
