    Louie, my husband, and I were childhood friend in Helena, and teenage friends at Thompson High School. Kenneth thought the world of Louie. He was a joy to be around, and he will be missed. Kayren Owens

    Louie was a special person always. Know him since early childhood. He would go out of his way to make you feel special to him,no matter where you would see him. He was truly a man of God. Was bluest to know him.
