Louis H. Hester, 83, of Saxonburg passed this world and entered into the next on Tuesday, October 23, 2018, taking his last breath from his loving wife. Born March 18, 1935 in Wilkinsburg to the late James and Helen Hester. He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his devoted wife of 61 years, Darrel (Anker) Hester; daughters, Kim Hester and Kelly McMahan; grand-daughter, Lauren (McMahan) and Kurt Savage; and his namesake, Steele Louis Savage, born 9/26; his fur-baby Lulu; as well as nieces and nephews.
Louie was a good, honest and hardworking man. His work life began at a young age as a Masonry helper, when he left school to help support his parents. He spent his whole life working in the construction field; retiring from the Heavy Carpenter Union Local 2274.
He was quiet, unless he knew you, and then would talk about his hunting adventures, house building tales, and athletic prowess of his youth. His tough guy exterior masked a soft and generous heart. While he was a "man’s man", he couldn’t miss an episode of the soap opera ‘Days of Our Lives’.
A common man, he was anything but "common" to those he loved and who loved him. Louie always worried about "his girls"; rest comfortably now, Louie, Dad, Pap, you taught us well… until we meet again.
He was preceded in death by his parents James and Helen Hester; brothers Fred, Richard, John and Robert; in-laws Mammy and Pappy (Alice and Jim) Anker; and a long list of fur-baby companions.
Friends will be received at the Fox Funeral Home, Inc. Saxonburg on Saturday October 27, 2018 from 11:00-1:00 to be followed by a memorial service at 1:00 pm. with Rev. Jason McQueen officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations may be made in his honor to: Animal Friends, 562 Camp Horne Road Pittsburgh, Pa 15237; Saxonburg Volunteer Fire Company, 210 Horne Avenue Saxonburg, Pa 16056 or a charity of your choice.
