Louie was one of four children born to Jean (John) Erramouspe and Jeanne Orhategaray, who immigrated to New Mexico from Bidarray, France in the early 1900’s and both conveyed a strong work ethic and respect for animals and rangelands.  Louie was the last remaining first-generation Erramouspe family member. Louie was a well-known and highly respected cattleman and rancher managing several cattle operations throughout New Mexico and almost anywhere you would go, people knew of Louie.

He was an all-around champion cowboy, competing in bareback, saddlebronc and bull riding. Throughout his rodeo career, Louie won many trophy saddles and buckles. After graduating high school in Corona, New Mexico he attended New Mexico State University in Las Cruces where he was on the rodeo team.

a ranch in the Stanley, New Mexico area for several years. Louie later managed several ranches for the late Charlie Crowder and Gus Wortham for whom

he was also their personal pilot. Louie later moved to Ruidoso, New Mexico where he and Charlie Crowder developed and sub-divided Black Forest. In the

1980’s Louie moved to Clovis, New Mexico and was co-owner with Harvey Tindell

in Mesa Livestock. In 1987 Louie moved on to running his own cow-calf operation in the Vaughn-Milagro area until his passing.

Louie was an avid golfer and loved the golf rounds with his buddies and family at the Colonial Park Country Club and Cree Meadows in Ruidoso. Louie also loved attending junior rodeos, local and Pro rodeos watching his favorite cowboys and cowgirls compete.
