Louis was found living in an abandoned building after his mother had died. He loved TV and often quoted phrases from the PRICE IS RIGHT.

Kate & Allie helped Louis find shelter at the Waverly House, a home that assisted the mentally handicapped.

Later in the series Louis found a girlfriend named Catherine (Deidre O’Connell) who worked at a ceramic shop.

The KATE & ALLIE series was honored by the Special Olympics Committee for creating an awareness of the mentally retarded.
