Surrounded by his loving family in prayer, William “Louis” Weise, 88, of Owensboro, was called to his heavenly home on Sunday, April 3, 2022. A Daviess County native, he was born on January 2, 1934 to the late William Walter Weise and Mary Virgie Hodgkins Weise. Louis enjoyed camping and going on Sunday trips with his wife and family.
