Upon returning from his Army service, he renewed his acquaintance with Mae Osborn who lived in Cowley, WY. They were married and Mae brought to that marriage, a daughter Connie. Louie loved to tell others that she had chosen him to be her father and so he adopted her. They were joined by Julie who was born a couple of years later. Louie loved to show off his beautiful daughter. But he didn't stop there with his love, he took into his heart nieces and nephews and many young people who came his way. Louie's capacity to love was big. He was a devoted husband. When Mae became too ill to be at home, despite his difficulties with walking he went every day to see her.
Louie worked for CS Lewis, and the Lovell Sugar factory. One of his favorite jobs was driving the Dinky, the little engine that pulled railroad cars in and out of the Factory. His daughters loved to take small rides with him. He was later employed with American Colloid until he retired.

Despite some hardships in his younger years with his mother, Mamie dying when he was around age 9 , Louie chose to be a happy, optimistic person. He was quick with a laugh and was kind to many.
