Eric Louis

Eric David Louis, 26, of Erie, died April 28, 2014 at his home. He was born in Boulder, Colorado on September 1, 1987 to Andrew David and Katherine (O'Donnell) Louis. Eric attended school at Our Savior Lutheran and Longmont Christian Schools. He was a 2005 graduate of Erie High School and had been attending internet online classes as well as at Front Range Community College. Eric loved the pursuit of knowledge via books and the internet. He greatly enjoyed playing video games and was an avid reader of the great philosophers of Ancient Greece such as Plato and Socrates. Eric eagerly read the writings of Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, and Abraham Lincoln. A Formosan friend said that Eric learned spoken Mandarin and some Japanese on the internet and had recently started a conversation with the Formosan friend, much to his surprise. Eric was an exercise and health food enthusiast and he preferred to pursue uncensored news on the internet instead of the structured news on the TV or radio broadcasts. Survivors include his parents Dave and Kate Louis and his brother Brandon Matthew Louis of Erie. He is further survived by numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins all out of state. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Carroll Lewellen Funeral Chapel, 503 Terry Street, Longmont, CO 80501.
