  1. Louie was a wonderful cousin and friend to my stepdad, Richard Duroux. They shared a lot during Richard’s life. My daughter, Lorie, was allowed to pick pecans from his yard and always enjoyed her visits. I also enjoyed visiting with Louie when I visited my parents. He was a good man & lived a good life.

  2. Louie and I were first cousins, grew up on the same street in La Marque. His father and my mother were brother & sister. We did not visit often as I lived in Houston most of my life, but we did visit and talk on the phone often.
    He was a good man & a quiet man. His home & yard were his pride & joy.
    I will miss him very much; I considered him the Westerlage family historian.
    RIP, Louie
