Louis Foreman loved music, especially jazz and Motown and felt the music move him to dance. He loved to watch sports especially basketball, baseball and wrestling. He was physically active throughout his life and enjoyed bicycling, playing basketball and bowling. In his later years he treasured time with his siblings though they had been separated shortly after birth. He loved Southern cooking and favored ribs and collard greens. Louis had a good work ethic and took great pride in giving a hard days’ work for his wages. He gladly completed janitorial jobs, cutting grass, trash collection, car washing and preparing donations for sale in the Thrift Shop. At break times he would enjoy smoking with others who would talk about their work. He always showed good manners and was polite and gentle with everyone that he encountered. His smile would envelop his whole face and he enjoyed many friendships at the Center. He will be fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure to know him.
