Pierre Saint Louis

NOVEMBER 15, 1934 – DECEMBER 31, 2018


Pierre Saint Louis was born on November 15, 1934 in the small town of Saut-D’Eau, located in the Mirebalais region in the central part of Haiti and passed away peacefully at his home in Raleigh, North Carolina surrounded by loved ones. He met the love of his life, Altagrace Florival in 1958 and they married a year later on October 17, 1959. Mr. Saint Louis will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of nearly 60 years and children: Joseph Marcel, Colette, Layn, Roosevelt, Maggie, Sabrina, Jean, Alta, Yvanne, along with twenty-five grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and cousins.


Mr. Saint Louis left Haiti with his wife in 1966 for St. Croix U.S. Virgin Islands. He immigrated to the United States in 1968 settling in Medford, Massachusetts. Mr. Saint Louis received multiple commendations for his 30 years of service to the community from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City of Boston.

After retiring to Raleigh, North Carolina in 2005, Mr. Saint Louis helped form a fifth church in 2007. He will be celebrated for his lifelong devotion to God, commitment and loyalty to his friends and colleagues, and unconditional love for his family.

    Parmi les hommes qui ont foulé la terre, Frère Saint-Louis est sans conteste l’un des meilleurs échantillons. Heureusement, il a eu la chance de trouver une épouse qui l’a encouragé et aidé à développer son altruisme et ses autres grandes qualités à un niveau rarement atteint par une créature de chair et de sang.
    Lorsque nous avons eu le plaisir de faire la connaissance du couple, il nous était difficile de croire que Sœur St-louis et son mari n’étaient pas des Anges que Dieu avait placés sur notre chemin. Jusqu’au moment où nous écrivons ces lignes, rien n’a pu enlever cette pensée de notre esprit.
    Homme d’une foi sans faille er sans bavure, Frère St-Louis se repose en attendant le retour glorieux de notre Seigneur et Sauveur Jésus-Christ.
    Nous voulons, en cette circonstance, présenter nos sympathies à Sœur St-Louis, sa tendre et chère épouse, à ses enfants et à tous les parents et alliés affectés par ce deuil.
    Dr. Marie-Carmel D. et Dr. Joseph Charles.-
