He later became the drydock master for Todd’s Shipyard, retiring after 28 years when the company closed. Louis continued his love for working on the water at the Galveston Yacht Basin. Louis loved to keep busy and soon joined the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office as a jailer until his retirement. He was a member of the Galveston Propeller Club and the Galveston Elks Lodge #126. Louis had a strong faith in God and was a lifelong member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. He was an avid hunter and outdoorsman who loved spending time with family and friends deer hunting in South Texas at the family “Camp.”
