Louis Gerou, 85, of Kenosha, died Tuesday September 29, 2020 at Aurora Medical Center with his family by his side and his sister, Geraldine, holding his hand.

Born on March 26, 1935, in Perkins, MI, he was the son of the late Baptist and Anna Gerou. On June 22, 1957, he married his high school sweetheart, Joan P. Belongia at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.

After graduation, Louis served in the United States Army until his honorable discharge. He then began his career working for the city of Kenosha and retired as a police officer after 27 years on the department.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, spending time with his family and Friday night dinners at the Italian American Club. He was a member of the Italian American Club, the Kenosha Police Association and St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

Thank you very much. My dad would talk about you all of the time. He held you in high regard. Thanks again.

I had the privilege of knowing Louie as my court officer, golfing buddy and friend. Behind his occasional gruff exterior was a wonderful husband, father and overall great human being. He was a true lover of the outdoors whether it be hunting, fishing or golfing. He will be deeply missed by all!
