Hubert Louis DeFoor was born June 1, 1956. He was the son of the late Breemon and Earline DeFoor of Marietta, Georgia. Hubert was the third child of one sister and four brothers.
Louis was raised in the city of Marietta where he was educated in the Marietta school system and graduated from Osborne High School. He was baptized at an early age and was immersed in a loving and Christian home with a church influenced atmosphere. He joined Holsey Chapel C.M.E. church during his childhood. He was employed by the Winn Dixie Corporation for many years where he held various titles and capacities.
Louis married Cheryl Mays (Goff) and from their union, they welcomed two loving daughters, CaSundra DeFoor and Krystal DeFoor. He loved playing basketball, playing the guitar, fishing, and singing. Louis was the most loving and compassionate person you could know. He was one who many would say, “He didn’t meet any strangers.” He loved everybody and he loved the Lord. You never saw Louis when he did not have a smile on his face or a funny thing to say to make you laugh.
Louis was a man of resilience. He had gone through many challenges in his life and he would always have a positive attitude about them. He would often say, “God will take care of it.” And just like that, Louis would bounce back with gratitude and never complaining.
On the morning of June 2, 2020, our beloved Hubert Louis DeFoor at the age of 64, entered his eternal rest after a prolonged time of illness. Along with his daughters, CaSundra DeFoor and Krystal DeFoor, he also leaves to cherish precious memories; his sister, Carol DeFoor Hatcher-Henry (William); an aunt, Christine Rosser, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and many friends. Louis was preceded in death by his three brothers: Earl Franklin DeFoor, Curtis DeFoor, and Wilbert DeFoor.
