Louie was born Nov. 14, 1933 in Mexia to Algie Edell and Velma Cox Masters. He retired from Dick Scott Ford, after 35 years of service. Then he worked for 10 more years at Blackmon’s Used Cars before officially retiring.
Louie married his loving wife of 61 years, Ruby Lively, on June 16, 1956. Their family consisted of four boys, who he enjoyed spending endless hours with on the baseball field and golf course. Louie was active in whatever they were involved in, a dad they could count on for support; he was their best friend. He had the opportunity to begin this journey over as he became the proud grandfather of a grandson, Cole, the light of his life.
Louie enjoyed playing cards and golf; he was an avid golfer. In his younger years, he played on a softball team that went to the World Series in 1954. Louie made friends easily and was a friend to many.
