Louis E. Fuqua Obituary
Louis E. Fuqua, 85, passed away Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at Casa Arena nursing home in Alamogordo. He was born in Stamford, Texas, to John Fuqua and Ann (King) Fuqua in March of 1928.
Louis attended Denton High School, in Texas and graduated in 1946, during which time he achieved the lifetime honor of Eagle Scout from the Boy Scouts of America.
After serving in the United States Coast Guard from 1946 to 1948, he went on to attend Abilene Christian College, Indiana Technical College and finally the University of Denver, where he earned his master's degree in communication methodology.
He was employed for a number of years at the Holloman Air Force Base Sled Track. His hobbies included working on various types of electronics and even creating electronic devices of his own; and as an avid bird watcher, he enjoyed nature, researching and keeping notes and logs on various species of birds that he observed. In his retirement years, he enjoyed spending time at the Alamo Senior Center where he met several dear friends.
Louis is survived by his former wife, Elaine Bourdon; his daughter Linda Munson and husband, Chuck, residing in Clarksville, Tenn.; his son Ralph Bourdon and wife, Kathy; his daughter Robin Lackey and husband, Ernie; his daughter Carrie Matthews, all of Alamogordo; and his 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his younger brother Glen Fuqua and wife, Enola, of Keller, Texas, and their three children.
He is preceded in death by his parents John and Ann Fuqua.
Memorial services will be held at the La Luz Church of Christ, on JJ Henry St., at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 21, 2013, with burial to follow directly. The family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home.

"So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord." (2 Corinthians 5:6-8)
