Condolences

Condolence From: Jonathan Pierce
Condolence: Louie Domes was first an employer, then a mentor and finally a friend. He was like an awesome second uncle to me!

I grew up in Sardinia and met Louie when I worked at Weber City Deli where I worked while going to college. One day Louie, who I had known and liked as a customer, invited me to begin working on his tree farm at his home in my spare time. At that time he was working in Detroit and spending his free time up on the hill on Warner Gulf Rd.

Louie was quite a bit older than me but had a zest for life and was full of such energy that I think it was normally me trying to keep up with him rather than vice versa. You see when you worked for Louie you didn't actually work for him but with him, as everything you were doing he was right there with you working just as hard or even harder than you. We almost always would take a break to eat and Louie would usually cook us something great as well!

He taught me to operate his heavy equipment on his farm and how to take care of the small trees. Back then they were mostly still too little to begin selling. I liked learning to drive the tractors. He was first to show me how to use a chainsaw.

He often asked me to keep an eye on his place and take care of things when he was out of town. I would snow blow for him in the winter and once even remember climbing up on his roof to shovel it off after an unusually heavy snow storm when he was worried about his roof handling the weight while he was in Detroit.

Louie was ALWAYS positive and in good spirits and rarely ever had a cross word to say about anyone. I couldn't name a person I've known my entire life who treated people he met better, no matter who they were or what their background, and with more respect and kindness than Louie did!

Our friendship grew and grew over time. We both shared a love for motorcycle riding too, and Louie conveniently had two motorcycles, a Honda Gold Wing and a Yamaha VMax. He would often invite me up during the summers and if the weather was nice Louie was like "You know what? It's too nice to work all day. Do you want to go for a bike ride and have lunch? I know a good place!". And off we would go.

A few years later on I joined the US Air Force and moved away, but Louie and I stayed in touch. We would call and chat every few months and when I visited home I would make it a point to get up on the hill to see my friend.

I was stationed early on with my new wife, Sheryl, in the Netherlands and Louie even made it a point to spend two days in the town we lived in to visit us while he and a friend were on a vacation through Europe.

Well all I can say is I sincerely haven't ever met a kinder, more integrity filled, harder working person, who taught me a lot about life as a young man by his example.

Louie, YOU will for ever be missed!
