Louis Edwin Biar, Jr., born November 2, 1936, in Giddings, Texas, was called peacefully home by his loving Savior on Monday, August 6, 2012, at the Medical Center of Southeast Texas, after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease. The only child of Louis Edwin Biar, Sr. and Lilla Lorena Scott Biar, he was baptized as an infant and confirmed his baptismal vows at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Giddings. He graduated from Giddings High School, where he was part of the 1951 state championship football team. On August 3, 1958, he was married to Patricia Pat Kieschnick Biar, also at Immanuel in Giddings. He received a BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Texas A & M in 1958, where he served as a proud member of the Corps of Cadets. After serving six months of active duty as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Chemical Corps at Fort McLelland, Alabama, and seven years in active reserves, he was honorably discharged from the United States Army, as 1st Lieutenant, in February of 1966. Louis worked as Production Manager of Di-Olefin Operations for B. F. Goodrich in Port Neches for twenty-three years. In 1982, he joined Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. in Beaumont as a Project Engineer, until his retirement on July 1, 2000. A devoted disciple of Christ, Louis was a faithful member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Nederland for fifty-three years, where he served in many capacities. All who knew Louis loved his kind heart and gentle spirit. His joy and fulfillment came from the happiness of his family and friends. He was patient with and respectful of all people. Through the years he eagerly devoted his time to coaching and other involvement in the activities of his children and grandchildren. He embodied the Aggie Spirit, and personal interests included Aggie football, barbecuing, and homemade eggnog-skills, which he proudly passed along to his children. His parents preceded him in death. He is survived by his loving wife of fifty-four years, Pat; children, Beth Shroff and her husband, Jerry, of Albuquerque; Scott Biar and his wife, Kelly, of Houston; and Amy Acosta and her husband, Luis, of Lewisville. The joy of his life were his eight grandchildren, Lindsey Shroff Ivey and her husband, Michael; Chelsey Shroff; Andrew, Jeremy, Carina, and Braden Biar; and Nicole and Nelson Acosta. He is also survived by his brother- in-law, Wayne Kieschnick and his wife, Reneé, of Giddings; and a host of extended family members and friends.
