Despite a debilitationg round of pneumonia, this determined gentleman is ready to return to the busy restaurant business!
Louis was born and raised in Louisiana, moved to California in 1956, and recently moved to Ohio. He has three children (one daughter and two sons), seventeen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Louis loved to stay active in his daily life. His favorite activities were walking and riding his bike while enjoying the beautiful summer days in North-East Ohio. Along with staying active, Louis had a passion for cooking. Louis opened and owned his first restaurant, called “Brothers Soul”, while living in California. He always loved cooking for others and did so for twenty years before he moved to North-East Ohio and became the manager of a new restaurant called, “Sister Soul Food”.
In the late winter of 2019 everything changed for Louis. He came down with a case of walking-pneumonia, which then affected his heart, and he ended up in the hospital only two days prior to Christmas. He lost over fifty pounds and was in the ICU for a little over one month. Louis then came to Glenwood Care to begin his recovery process. Within the past two months , Louis has made tremendous progress. He has gained back the weight and strength that was quickly lost. Louis states, “I never lost my focus, always remembering my goals” and “I had great therapy and overall great care during my stay. I would give them a 10/10.” Louis is now in the process of moving back home. He has found a new apartment, and is more than excited to be back and running his restaurant again!
