Louis and Rose came to Mishawaka in the mid 1960’s from Florence, Alabama. He worked at Riblets, a fabrication manufacturing company, for more than 20 years until its closure. Always a farmer at heart, upon retirement Louis and Rose returned to the family farm in Florence, Alabama where they lived until recently. Louis was an avid hunter and enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren target shooting. He also enjoyed fishing and hanging out with his friends who shared his love of hunting and fishing. Louis loved his “homeplace” in Alabama and being surrounded by the fields. There was no other place he wanted to be.
