Louis has been described as a full-time businessman, husband, father, buddy, friend, hunter, fisherman, craftsman and builder. He became a master plumber and worked at L.C. Mosel Co. from 1947 until his retirement in 2017. He loved building and construction so much that he built four boats in his lifetime, the largest being a 30′ twin-engine off-shore deep sea fishing vessel named the Sea Pauper which took five years of evenings and weekends to build. While in the process of building his fifth boat, a 42-foot yacht, he was introduced to the game of skeet by his son Kurt. Louis got the skeet bug and the boat was forgotten.
Louis took up skeet with the same vigor and determination as he did with all of his other hobbies. He competed in tournaments all over the U.S., winning numerous medals (476 trophies and awards are documented) and was named Captain of the Senior Veteran 1st Team for the NSSA All-American Team three years in a row. Louis was NSSA All-American Veteran Team Captain six times from 2000 to 2007 and Senior Veteran Team Captain for the Texas Skeet Shooting Association six times from 2009 to 2014.
At the age of 87, during the 2014 World Skeet Shooting Championships, he and his shooting partner Robert Myers broke six world records in the two-man team Senior Veterans event. Later in his life, after the seas were too rough, the shotguns were too heavy and getting to the office was a job in itself, he continued working on his stamp collection. Louis collected stamps his entire life and amassed a phenomenal collection. Louis was a life member of the NRA, the Texas State Skeet Shooting Association, the National Skeet Shooting Association, and the San Antonio Gun Club.
