Lou E. Henneke - Obituary


ouis Edward Henneke, a loving husband and father, retired owner of an emergency services software company, avid boater and fisherman, died on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at the age of 73 at his home in Edgewater, Maryland. Born on March 8, 1949 in Baltimore, Maryland to the late Edmund and Marguerite Henneke, he graduated from the University of Maryland in 1971. Lou embarked on a career of computer software development, eventually, along with his partner, forming Public Safety Systems Inc. in 1984. PSSI provided emergency software systems for police, fire, and EMT services. These systems were installed throughout the country. He led PSSI for 34 years until his retirement in 2018. Lou loved the water, boating, fishing and enjoying time with his family. He was an excellent carpenter who could build or fix anything. If he could not find what he needed to fix something in the home, on the property, or for fishing, he would create or invent a solution. Left to cherish his life are his beloved wife of more than 45 years, Judy; his three children, Dawn McIntosh, Kelly Marshall and Steven Henneke; his four grandchildren, Nicholas Marshall, Andrew McIntosh, Jackson Marshall and Katie McIntosh; his sister, Peggy Welk; his brother, Edmund Henneke and his adored dog, Rena. Friends are invited to celebrate Lou’s life at the Kalas Funeral Home & Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Rd., Edgewater, MD on Saturday, October 15 from 10 am until his memorial service begins at 11 am.
