Dear Stephanie, Susie, Stacy & Susie: When my mom called and shared the news of Uncle Louie's death, the 1st 2 things entered my mind; he'd not eat another kolach again and seeing him when I was visiting mom. Last few visits were at Tama casino's buffet lunch on Thursdays. He was sharing about the losing sight in one eye. Another memory is when I owned a house on 12th Ave in Marshalltown and had a contract with Section 8. They requested the house to be rewired and your dad did the job. All of you and your families are in my prayer. I'm going to miss the chats we had. Take care. Love from a cousin of yours, Denise

Dear Family,
I first met Louis when he had a house on Larkfield court, before he and Mabel each sold their homes and marred , moving into their new home further down the street from me on Rolling Meadows. Upon visiting with Louis, I found he was from Clutier, Iowa and had known my father and gone hunting with him and to movies with dad and his sisters in their young adult life. We were so thrilled to find each other from Clutier, myself especially to hear stories of my dad and he in youth!

I saw him in church on Saturday nights, gave him a ride home several times, and also joined he and his family for dinner after church. Louis was a kind and gentle man, and always would stop for a hug and visit when I saw him!
I saw miss him, and am so sorry for your loss! He was one of the Great ones❣️ I can still see that twinkle in his eyes and wonderful smile on his face ❣️

Lewis Kunch built and owned the Phillips 66 Service Station in Cottonwood, Arizona for years.... When I was a kid in elementary school Mr. Kunch would let my brother and I stay in his service station while waiting for the school bus during the winter time when it was so cold outside..I went to school and was in the same grades with his daughter Stephanie.. My dad really thought a lot of Mr. Kunch and his mechanical ability...This was the newest station in town. Rest in Peace,.. Louis!!!

Louis was married to my Aunt Mabel. He was such a kind man and so nice to my Aunt. She was very happy being married to him. My regards to his family and they will be in my prayers. Meredith Elledge
