During the Christmas season you often found Louis making Christmas fudge and cookies, a tradition that he has passed down. Louis and Betty Lou liked to travel and became Winter Texans for many years. They had numerous friends at the Ethel Everly Senior Center and the Parkinson's Support Group in Corpus Christi. Louie also enjoyed the social time with his Union brothers and golf buddies.
