Louis leaves behind 19 grand children and 16 Great Grand children, who were a special part of his life.

Louis was predeceased by his loving wife , Lillian of 62 years (2003), brother Joe and his brothers in-law Gayhart and Richard Olson. Louis was born in Coleman and moved to the Wilmot District in 1930 with his family and married Lillian Olson on July 01,1942. Here they farmed and raised their family of six children.

Fairness, high moral values and commitment, always characterized his path in life. The family would like to sincerely thank staff of the Rimbey Hospital, Dr. Boorman, Home Care, family and friends for all their kindness and support during this difficult time.
