to a son in 1979. Louis had the opportunity to work as a boss at Spring Creek Coal and enjoyed all aspects of the mines production.
Lou attended Sheridan College taking numerous classes to keep his mind he would say. Lou's passion was building a Long-Easy Airplane at his home. The countless hours were so enjoyable for him. The journey of flying had giving him the possibility of meeting so many great friends. Spent many hours at the airport hanger just reminiscing about that days flight. They took off almost every saturday morning to have breakfast in Hardin, MT or Cody, WY. He often talked about flying in formation with all his wonderful "Riders in the Sky".
