Louis N. Theroux

Birth: Apr. 10, 1919
Death: Feb. 14, 2006

Husband of Jean H. Theroux

Louis Theroux joined the military on August 19, 1944 and served his country until his discharge on June 30, 1946. He was a principal owner of the Theroux Development Company, which built not only individual freestanding houses but also Windmill Park, a mobile home facility in Holt, MI. The park was only a short distance from Louis' "Green Acres"-like farmhouse residence, which he largely designed, built and perpetually customized. Visitors admired the crosshatch designs on the high ceilings, which he gleefully had created by removing the cords from old Venetian blinds and staplegunning the slats into place. He'd bought the blinds at a tag sale; in fact, in his later years, Louis loved attending flea markets and auctions with his brother Frank and impulse buying a wide array of unusual items (much to the chagrin of his wife, Jean). The brothers bought everything from fleets of used cars to dump trucks, church organs to the entire contents of a radio station, ambulances to a warehouse full of ceramic knick-knacks. The pair rarely profited from or lost money on such deals, as they tended to resell the items at cost to residents of the park, friends or relatives. Friends and family always enjoyed standing close to Louis, hoping to catch some of his endless stream of offbeat, under-his-breath witticisms. Louis and Jean had three children, John, Frank and Kathleen.

My Uncle Louis was quite a character -- with an endless grin and a wisecrack under his breath which was always worth straining to hear. He drove his wife nuts the way he would collect all sorts of odd things, from ambulances to the complete contents of a...(Read more)
