Louis and his wife Elizabeth Sauer were married in 1908. Their children grew up with the business, but tragedy struck in February of 1938. After the family seemed to have recovered from a dangerous strain of influenza, Dan the second oldest, suddenly died from complications of the illness. He was 27 years old and an integral part of the family's future plans. Dan's name was added to "Louis' Oyster Bar" as a memorial and the oldest son Louis Arther worked long and hard to help fill the void. Younger son Chester was still in school and didn't join the firm on a full time basis until after his military service in 1945. Grandpa Louis died in 1958 and his sons Louis A. and Chester continued the family business until passing it onto their sons Louis John and Doug in 1977. In 1991 Doug bought Louis John's shares in the restaurant. He carried on the tradition with the help of his brother Chester Jr. (Tuck) and his wife Joyce. Doug and Joyce had three children. Just like the generations before them, they grew up in the family business. Each child started washing dishes at a young age! Theodore Wachsmuth (Ted), the oldest son, has been working for the family business ever since. During his college years at Portland State University, he managed the kitchen for his father. He met his wife, Stephanie Jones, while visiting his sister in California. They got married in 1996 and now have two children, Caleb and Chloe. Meinert Wachsmuth (Keoni), the younger son also worked for the family business. He moved away to attend Southern Oregon State College. But returned in 1993 to go to the Western Culinary Institute. Upon graduating he moved to the Hawaiian Islands. While he was in Maui he met his wife, Michelle Lyons, in Hana. In 1997 they moved to Portland, joined the family business and got married the next year. They have three children, Louis (Kai), Elizabeth (Hana), and Dan (Kaleo). Elizabeth Wachsmuth (Beth), the youngest, met her husband, Jon Teran, while attending Biola University. They got married in 1998 and had three children, Malia, Joseph Douglas (J.D.) and Kiana. Beth got her doctorate in physical therapy and now works in Pasadena, California. Ted and Keoni manage the restaurant and their father Doug is acting CFO.
