Louis was born and raised in Stow, the son of the late Ulric E. and Beatrice L. (Provencher) Normandin. He graduated Stow High School before enlisting in the United State Marine Corps in 1964, serving his country as a guard for the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson, where he was stationed at the White House and at Camp David. In 1968 he went to Vietnam and was Honorably Discharged in 1970.
Louis worked for Metal Goods in Marlborough for many years until his retirement in 2006.
On Nov. 28, 1980, he and Adele got married in Berlin.
He was a life member of the VFW Post 1027 in Hudson. He enjoyed hunting, golfing, riding his motorcycle and traveling with Adele before she passed, his favorite trip being to Italy. He also enjoyed traveling with Donna to Bermuda and several other destinations. Most of all, Louis loved visiting his grandkids or as he would say my grandbabies and his great-grandbaby along with spending time with his family.
