Michels. To this union were born eight children. As a lifelong dairy and grain farmer in Green Creek, Louis never met a stranger. His caring nature was evident in his love for his family, friends and neighbors. He enjoyed playing pinochle, telling stories, and sharing his great sense of humor.

Preceding him in death were his parents; infant son, John; sisters, Ruth Stodden, Hilda Dasenbrock, Mildred Ludwig, Mary Michels, and a brother and sister who died in infancy.
