Re: Our friend Louis Colpitts
JanClay got Lou's granddaughter's phone # thru the Funeral home and she said Lou had been in a nursing home and passed away due to covid complications. He was my horseshoe partner, pitching doubles tournaments together, wearing identical shirts created by Jan with funny nicknames. We traveled to tournaments together, even World tournaments, spending many an hour telling jokes, laughing, rehashing our horseshoe woes and successes in Lou's "Lounge". Several of you were with us for those memories. He walked JanClay down the aisle the day we married. We loved him like a brother.
Lou was my best friend, though we had been out of touch this past year, I will miss him always.
