Louie was a long-time member of Levy Baptist Church and a lifelong follower of Jesus Christ.
Louie met the love of his life, Denise Reinke in the summer of 1968. She was introduced to Louie by his brother Joseph. According to Denise, Louie’s brother Joseph had to pick her up because Denise’s mother would never approve of her dating Louie.

In 2013, Louie and Denise welcomed the birth of their grandson Ethan. Louie’s favorite role was becoming Ethan’s Papa.
