Louis J. Vogt, 82 of Elkhorn, WI, died on Monday, February 8, 2021 at his home in Elkhorn, WI. He was born January 16, 1939 in Lyons, WI, the son of the late George and Mathilde (Held) Vogt.

In addition to dairy farming between East Troy and Elkhorn, Louie was a livestock dealer for 65 years, specializing in the sale of goats, sheep and pigs. He enjoyed collecting unique animals for his personal barnyards, at one time having African Watusi bulls, Brahman bulls, Buffalo, Dutch Belted cattle, an emu, javelina and peccary wild boars, fainting goats, several alpaca, and a herd of Scottish Highland cattle. Louie would never turn down a game of Crocodile Dentist with the grandkids or fail to slip them a handful of Bit o’Honey or Chips Ahoy on their way out. He will be remembered for his love of old Western movies, comics, $2 bills, wearing the grandkids’ school spirit wear and asking “what’s new with you”.
