He excelled academically and was a devout Christian.
Louis had a very charismatic personality and loved people and animals especially dogs.
Louis served in the military in Hungary and also fought in the 1956 Revolution while he was at the University in Budapest. During the Revolution, Louis had to flee to the Austrian border and eventually made his way to Canada for a new start and to continue his education. While in the University in Canada, Louis officially changed his name to Louis Csoti Moncton. He met his first wife Kathleen in Toronto where his son Anthony was born. Two years later, the family moved to California where his daughter Desiree was born.

Louis played soccer for most of his life and at least 20-25 years on local teams in the Bay Area. Louis also practiced karate for 20-25 years and achieved a 4th degree black belt.
Louis loved telling jokes to uplift his family and friends. He always felt that it was important to have a good sense of humor no matter what happens in life. Louis had a wonderful sense of humor and a remarkable story telling ability that everyone loved.
Louis was an excellent cook and had an incredible green thumb in the garden growing his own peppers and tomatoes. Louis was also an avid reader and loved music especially classical, opera, and jazz.
Louis was a very spiritual man. He prayed and read the Bible every day. He gave God thanks and praise when anything good happened. Though there were hard times, he still had faith and hope in the Lord.
