Louie was born on August 4, 1924 at his family homestead in Kronenwetter, WI. Louie was one of nine children of John and Mary Karter.
Louie served in the U.S. Army/Air Force during World War II as a mechanic in England, France, and Germany. He told stories of his motorcycle in France and loading and unloading airplanes as they flew missions to Normandy. He recalled painting invasion stripes on the planes in preparation for D-Day.
He was married to Lillian Betty Kurth, who preceded him in death in 1986. Together they owned and operated Carter's Grocery, Carter's Restaurant, Carter's Implement, Carter's Red Brick Bar, and Carter's Real Estate. Louie was a self-made man who could fix and build anything to run the family businesses.
Louie spent his retirement years enjoying family events, going to the casino, at his cottage up north, in Lehigh Acres in Florida, and following all his favorite sport teams, and NASCAR events.
One of his accomplishments was the donation of the property for Redeemer Lutheran Church in Weston and leading the church construction. He was a charter member of Redeemer Church.
