Louis Francis Weipert, 76, passed away Monday September 13, 2010 after a battle with cancer. Lou is survived by his wife of 39 years Wilma Jo, his son's Gregory of Centennial CO and Kenneth of Randleman North Carolina and their wives Janet and Rose, stepchildren Karla Henry of Claremore OK and Dennis Davidson of Lone Tree CO and their spouses Dr. John B Henry and Jo Ellen Davidson, twin niece and nephew Lori and Marcus Weipert of Littleton CO, grandchildren Jared, Jamye and Joshua Henry, Sarah and Joseph Davidson, Sabrina and Tommi Joann Basquez, and great grandson Markus Henry. Lou was preceded in death by his parents Louis and Caroline Weipert, brothers Richard and David Weipert and stepdaughter Cynthia Davidson. Lou was born June 11, 1934 at Colorado General Hospital in Denver and spent most of his life in the Denver area. After serving in the US Army he earned an undergraduate degree at Regis University and graduate and doctorate's degrees from the University of Colorado. Lou had a distinguished, at times controversial, 27 year teaching career. Lou retired from DPS in 1985 to his mountain home in Glen Haven, CO where he built home additions, collected and refurbished cars, and wrote and published his book "The Educational Abdicators". He was everyone's "Papa Lou", gracious, generous, and affirming of all. Lou celebrated 22 years of sobriety and touched countless lives through his own journey to recovery and through his work at the Harmony Foundation. Lou served on Harmony's board of directors and selflessly worked with others as a fifth step counselor, AA and Al Anon leader, and sponsor to many fellow souls in route to recovery. Donations to Mother Cabrini's Shrine (www.mothercabrinishrine.org), where Lou sought and found answers, are suggested in lieu of flowers. Donations may be sent in care of Allnutt Funeral Service 1302 Graves Avenue Estes Park, CO 80517. A visitation was held at Allnutt Funeral Service on Thursday 4:30 to 6:30 PM. The funeral mass will be celebrated Friday September 17, 2010 at 10:30 AM at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church 880 MacGregor Avenue in Estes Park. A graveside service with military honors will follow at 3:00 PM at Fairmount Cemetery 430 S. Quebec St. in Denver. See www.allnutt.com to send a message to Lou's family.
