Obituary for Louis P. Orleans

Louis P. Orleans was born December 22, 1922, into a family of seven children, in Fort Collins, Colorado. After serving in the U.S. Army during WWII, he returned to Colorado State University to complete his degree in Mechanical Engineering and accept a job with the Beet Sugar Foundation. Around that time he met and married June, and they began a family that eventually included six children.

A life-long career with Holly Sugar took the family first to Colorado Springs, where Lou worked in the research department, making a name for himself in the fields of beet pile ventilation, carbon filtration, and thick juice storage, then on to management of factories in Hereford, Texas, and Imperial, California. When he retired from the company, he was Director of Energy and Environmental Affairs at the head office in Colorado Springs.

Lou believed in giving generously of his time, talent, and treasure. He was active in church choirs and served as an officer in such local organizations as the Knights of Columbus, American Legion, Holy Apostles Golden Agers, and his HOA Board of Directors. He held season tickets to the Colorado Springs Symphony Orchestra and Fine Arts Center theater productions.

After a gradual decline in strength over the past few years, he died peacefully at home in his sleep, longing to rejoin his beloved June, in heaven.

Lou was preceded in death by his parents, three of his siblings, and his wife of nearly sixty-eight years.

He is survived by three siblings, Sister Rita Orleans of Leavenworth, Kansas, Donald (Mary) Orleans of Broomfield, Colorado and Richard (Adrianne) Orleans of Prescott, Arizona; six children, Peg (Tom Bradley) Orleans, Marie Hall, and Louis (Valli) Orleans all of Colorado Springs, Carolyn (Larry) Gray of Albion, Nebraska, Dorothy (Ron) Koester of Grafton, North Dakota, and Larry (Patricia) Orleans of Greeley, Colorado; thirteen grandchildren, Laura, Susannah, Shawn, Tina, Danny, Steve, Christie, Cody, Bobbi Jo, Lisa, Jasmin, Chris, and Louis; and sixteen great-grandchildren, Kinsley, Harlow, Jude, Levi, Aidan, Fabian, Amanda, Amber, Halle, Adam, Alex, Hunter, Naomi, Westen, Aspen, and Adler.
