From being raised on a farm in Oklahoma to enlisting in the army and finding his way to Alaska in 1952, and finally working for the railroad, all the while raising 5 rambunctious kids. He had the most patients of any man I ever knew.
Louis Hammons was "old school" when it came to teaching not only his kids but others as well. I remember apologizing to him for the first time, after graduating high school, for being a pain in the butt child, and he said "you were a pain in the butt". I was surprised by his response, I was hoping for more, but that was not his way.
He would always tell us about having to walk to school every morning, uphill both ways, no shoes and sick. To remind us, if we think we have it hard, others have it harder.
He showed us his love by getting us the things we needed and not what we wanted. And when he did get those things we needed, they were the best that money could buy. We knew those things was the best and most expensive and he did not think twice about how much it cost, he just paid for them weather or not he could afford them.
I always remember him saying that when I turned 18, I would have to find my own place to live and he was not going to take care of any kids if I had any. And when looking for work, to not do two things, one was to not work for the railroad and two was to not join the military , and if I was to join the military, to join the coast guard because it was the easiest.
When he was getting older, he said he would never be a bourdon to anyone and if he was going to be a bourdon then he was going to walk across the inlet. A furiously independent man, not wanting from anyone, but rather giving of everything he had. Interestingly enough he suffered from an enlarging heart and in the end days, it was heart that gave out last.
Louis F. Hammons or dad to most of us, is my greatest mentor. Dad you will be missed but never forgotten.

I'll miss talking to you when I'd come to pick you up. And I'll miss you. You were like my second dad after my dad died.

Dear Morris, Edward, Gary and Marie,

It is with deepest sympathy for the loss of your father that I write this note. One of the things I truly regret is not taking the time to travel to Alaska to meet all of you and my Uncle Louis. My entire life I have heard a lot of great stories about Uncle Louis from his parents, my father RB and from my brother Mike. These stories painted a picture in my mind of Uncle Louis being a man with honor, integrity, honesty and very devoted to his family. Reading the comments on this guest book certainly have confirmed this assessment. Although you all grieve this loss take comfort that he is with his loved ones and in a much better place than all of us.

In the event any of you or your family find yourselves near Houston, Texas, PLEASE contact me as I would dearly love to meet you in person and introduce you to my family.

Yours truly,

Lane RB Hammons

Louis filled out my social security. I told him ,"You lived a long life, now you can rest. He told me,'I'm getting tired.' So I told him ,'You ca rest now, you can rest'."

My Papa Louis was one of the greatest men I have ever known...Although we didn't get to spend much time together considering we were miles apart...I always enjoyed his little notes or boxes he sent to us. I love you Papa.

I knew Louie when he lived and worked on the Railroad in Girdwood. He gave me good advice when I was younger and I enjoyed talking to him.
