Welcome to the Lou-D Net Cancer Foundation Dedication Page
Lou-D Net Cancer Foundation Dedication Page
This page is dedicated to Louis D. Davis, Jr, who left fingerprints of grace and courage during his cancer journey. You shan’t be forgotten. Louis D. Davis, had a heart of gold, a smile that shined like the sun. Louis had dry humor that brought laughter to all that knew him. But most of all, he was a man of faith; a husband, father, and grandfather extraordinaire. He understood the importance of family and loved his family unconditionally. Louis was a Viet Nam war veteran who honorably served his country from 1968 – 1970. He was a loyal citizen in his community and offered good deeds to so many. One could never remain a stranger after a conversation with Louis because of his charming personality.
Louis passed in peace on Sunday, July 27, 2014 at the Baton Rouge General Hospice Unit (Butterfly Wing). He battled courageously and valiantly during his fight with a rare cancer called Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (NET). He courageously proved that cancer is just a word and not a sentence. Lou-D, as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, was born on November 9, 1948. He was the first born of seven siblings.
Lou-D was baptized at an early age at the First African Baptist Church, in Compton California. He was a graduate of Centennial High School in Compton, California, Class of 1966 and an affiliate of the Sunshine High School Class of 1966. He attended Southern University where he majored in Civil Engineering. He had extensive training in fire & safety, and management and supervision.
LOUIS RETIRED FROM TOTAL PETROCHEMICAL, DECEMBER 31, 2010, AS A PROCESS SUPERINTENDENT WITH 40 YEARS OF SERVICE.
He also received numerous accommodations where he served as the Chairman of the Zoning Commission for the City of St Gabriel. He was a member of the American Legions Augusta Criddle Post 583, National Cancer Society, an original member of '12 Just Men Social and Civic Club', and partnered with his wife Alice to form the Lou-D NET Cancer Foundation, whose mission is to promote wellness and prevention of Neuroendocrine Carcinoma and any other life threatening diseases, in hopes to find a cure.
Louis was a member of the New Jerusalem Full Gospel Baptist Church. He is greatly missed by his family and friends.
