Louis L. Fine

Louis L. Fine, Oct. 23, 1930-Jan. 3, 2018.

He Was a Selfless Man in a Selfish World – A True Mensch.

Louis Fine, a lifelong St. Louis resident and longtime insurance salesman/certified financial planner, died recently after a prolonged illness. Known as a tremendous servant to his clients, and loyal friend to all, no one ever mentioned knowing Louis Fine without commenting how special he was. He is survived by his wife, three children, five grandchildren, one great-grandchild, six nephews, and five nieces.

As a boy, Louie Fine was very popular, strong, athletic, and a feared boxer. He played baseball, one time trying out for the St. Louis Cardinals. He joined the Marines during the Korean war, part of an airstrip emergency crew. A few years after his discharge, he met, quickly fell in love with, and married the love of his life Roberta Minkes. Lou and Roberta were married 61 years.

Louis was a spiritual man, who prayed to G-d and meditated daily. He believed in the benefits to success of positive thinking, “mind over matter” as he called it. In his words, and words to live by, “You can do anything you want in life if you put your mind to it!”

Lou Fine was also a true embodiment of Chesed, loving kindness. That particularly, will be missed most, not only by those who knew and loved him, but also by the world at large in a universal sense. Perhaps we all can be a little kinder to others in our lives to make up for this loss!
