Louis married the former Shirley Washington of Catonsville, MD on May 1, 1954. Not only did Louis fall in love with Shirley, but he also fell in love with Catonsville. They resided in various homes in the Winters Lane area, and in 1979, Louis and Shirley built the home of their dreams on Arunah Avenue, just two blocks off of Winters Lane where they still reside.

After his retirement from the US Army in October 1970, Louis took a position with the District of Columbia Public Schools as a Military Instructor at Ballou High School. He remained with the DC Public Schools until 1989 when he retired the second time as the Assistant to the Personnel Director for Staffing.

Though Louis only formally completed the 10th grade in high School, he successfully completed the GED program in Korea in 1951. In 1975, he earned his high school diploma. He graduated from Catonsville Community College with an AA degree in 1976, and he graduated from the University of Baltimore with a BA degree (cum laude) in 1979 and a Masters of Public Administration Degree in 1982.
