    Louis touched many lives with his friendship, humor and wisdom. He was artistic in his skills as an auto body technician. We have so many memories of good times shared in his body shop, squirrel camp, deer hunting and fish fries. It was an honor and a privilege to be his friend. Prayers from the Reaves and Barton families are with your family during this difficult time. Trust God completely and may your family find peace in knowing Louis is at rest in heaven.
