Fort Myers, FL
Our dearest friends, family members, and fellow veterans, please help Johns family to mend the loss of their loved one, our friend, brother, and fellow veteran, whom we all love dearly and miss terribly. John K. Louis, as many of you know, was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on the 2nd of December 1992, to Wilbert and Marie Louis. Although he was not yet a citizen, John joined the United States Army at the age of 18 in November of 2011, to become a combat engineer. In November of 2012, he deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In January of 2013, he returned from deployment early after experiencing a traumatic brain injury. Johns injury caused him to constantly suffer from debilitating headaches, extreme lethargy, and seizures. After being medically discharged from the United States Army, John returned to Florida in August of 2014. On the 22nd of February 2016, he married Nerline Charles; which was his partner of eight years. After struggling with both Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and his traumatic brain injury, John passed away on the 26th of December 2016. Anyone who knew John, or Louis as his brothers in the Army had known him, knew that John was a fun-loving guy, always making jokes, smiling, and laughing. He was very caring. He was always supporting his family and took great pride in his Haitian heritage. At the age of twenty-four, John was taken away too soon from us and left behind many loved ones. He leaves behind his wife, Nerline Louis; his mother, Marie Louis; and father, Wilbert Louis; along with seven siblings: Nanouche, James, Venia, Berline, Elijah, Phoebe, and Othniel. We ask that you keep Louiss family in your prayers during these difficult times. We also ask that you contribute to this veterans fund, so that his family may celebrate and honor Johns life free of monetary stresses.
