Louis was involved in the fishing industry from an early age fishing with others. Eventually he purchased his own boat and went lobstering, herring gill net and hand lining ground fish. He employed both his sons early in their careers and was proud to teach them the trade. Louis loved fishing, but retired in 1998 to care for his wife Nita who had suffered a debilitating stroke. He dedicated all his time caring to her needs. Upon Nita’s passing he lost his wife and soulmate.
He enjoyed the simple things in life like going for drives to look for deer and to the wharf to check on the boats. He loved visits from family members and keeping in touch with other family members with daily or weekly phone conversations.
The family would like to acknowledge the care and support given to both of our parents by the Yarmouth Argyle Home Support Service. Special bonds were formed and meant so much to Dad. Thank you!
