FAMILY TRIBUTE

Louis was the second youngest of nine children born to Louis and Sophie Bumbul. He attended St. Francis Assisi in Detroit through 8th grade. He attended Chadsey High School for three years before joining the US Army in 1946.   He served 18 months in Korea before being discharged as a corporal in 1948.

He took his future wife, Alice, to her high school senior prom. They were married two years later. Their first residence was a farm house owned by her parents. A few years later, Lou designed and built their own house, next door, with the help of family and friends. This was the family home for the rest of their lives.

By using the GI Bill, Lou went to school and learned his life-long trade of carpentry. He started his own business doing remodeling and repair work. When the Ford Woodhaven Stamping Plant opened in 1965, he was hired as the first carpenter in the plant. He continued to work two jobs to support his large family—of which he was most proud. In January 1995, Lou retired with almost 30 years on the job at the age of 67.

After retirement, he enjoyed traveling, going to the casino and participating in the Senior Olympics. He loved to play euchre and pinochle and spending time with his kids and grandchildren.
