Mr. Louie “Bud” Elmer Sarver, 87, of Vidor passed away Friday evening October 01, 2021. On October 8, 1933, Louie E. Sarver and his twin sister were born to Henry "Martin" Sarver and Falber Lee Sarver in Rose City.
Louie was employed at the post office in Vidor for more than twenty-five years and after retirement he became a much-loved school security guard at Vidor High School. He was also a graduate who lettered in all three of the sports that were available when he graduated in the 50’s. He was a member of First Baptist Church where he attended the Kings Men Sunday School class and was active in the Vidor community. Louie loved taking care of his animals, feeding his birds and squirrels every morning. He enjoyed throwing the football and playing pitch with his grandchildren as well as a good game of Ping Pong and wouldn’t hesitate to remind everyone he was The Ping Pong Champion while in the Airforce, which by the way he remained until this day! He is loved and will be greatly missed.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believe in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
