Lou Dean Predmore
Lou Dean Predmore died Friday August 14, 2009 at his home in Greeley at the age of 77 after a long battle with cancer.
He was born February 26, 1932 to Chester and Pauline (Doyle) Predmore in Detroit, Illinois. He spent two years playing basketball for the special services in the Navy having even enjoyed playing ball against the Harlem Globetrotters. Lou invested in the education of children for 34 years in the public school system, the first 14 as a teacher and coach and then 20 years in administration, retiring as Assistant Superintendent from Weld Central School District.
Lou was an avid golfer. He thoroughly enjoyed watching his grandsons play in sports, loved the mountains and all of nature, having had a dream that he would someday drift down the Mississippi River on a homemade raft. But his greatest dream was to help others by donating his body for study to help those who might be benefited from it.
He is survived by one son Micheal Predmore of Millikan, two daughters, Marcy Predmore of Estes Park and Deanne Helmboldt (Dan) of Greeley, a brother Morris (Erma) Predmore of Kentucky and three grandson’s Michael Veile (Erin), Jonathan and Tony Predmore as well as his Grandpets Dodi, Gaby, Lady, K2 and Sage. They will miss him.
Memorial services were held Thursday, August 20th at 3:00 p.m. at Christ Community Church, 1301 15th Street.
Donations may be made to the Lou Predmore Memorial Fund through the Wells Fargo Bank.
