He, Richard and I grew up in the same area, Southern Illinois. That is the reason we connected so well. I have fond memories of our Mexican lunch with him and how we all talked about Southern IL together. His memory of those times was very sharp. Thank you for allowing us that privilege , Teri!!
So happy you were given your angel wings to fly to heaven to be with our heavenly father. You were an absolute angel here on earth to your family and friends. My prayers go out to Terri and Robby and family. It was a pleasure to have Lou as my FB friend. I use to love seeing his posts and his pictures. Rest in peace Mr. Lou Mautz. You will never be forgotten sir!!

Goodbye to a funny , sweet human being who was always on to our shenanigans growing up. May you rest in the arms of our savior ❤️
May your soul rest. You were such a joy to be around! I know in the end it was so hard on you. I’ll never forget you listening to you music, I know it was a happy place for you. May the music never end now!
I will miss that sweet man as most will ! He always had a smile and a kind word to say every time I saw him not to mention , he was quite the jokester and flirt !!
Even though I was terrified of him as a kid, (thanks to Betty) She was always trying to keep the peace and quiet , maybe she didn’t want him to notice how many of us were running around !! Lol
Lou , You will be greatly missed but I know your up in heaven as happy as can be , playing your sweet music dancing with the love of your life !
God Bless You sweet man , RIP
All my Love , Cindy
My deepest sympathies to Lou’s family. I am glad I met him a few years back. I remember when he first moved to Terri’s. Such is the journey of life. For all those involved. I am glad Lou had his kids. Lou was so fortunate to experience love. In marriage. One of many years. With his pets. With a great career. But I am so happy he experienced love with his children. His legacy here. I never want to leave this earth with regrets. I do not believe Lou had any when he peacefully took his last breath last Sunday holding his daughter’s hand. Wow. What an honor for her. Terri, your daddy loved you and you loved him. Lou loved all his kids. To know Lou was to love Lou. He always made me laugh or put a smile on my face. So sorry for your sadness but know that I believe he is still being a joy maker and is very happy where he is right now- his Spirit.
Please accept my late condolences to y’all for Lou’s recent passing. I knew & worked with Lou for approx. 15 years while our careers crossed path with one another at Mueller Co. His story telling skills were indeed most entertaining and sometimes they were a great highlight to our annual sales meetings. He was a wonderful friend and co-worker. God bless and y’all.

It has been 3 years since you passed away. Thinking of you today and always. You left just in time. Dixie and Dudley passed not long after you. Neither suffered and I was there for them until the end. Then the pandemic hit our nation it has been crazy. Miss you dad.
