Joe Louis Grave

Known around the world as “The Champ,” Joe Louis held the world heavyweight boxing champion title longer than anyone else in history. His full name at birth was Joe Louis Barrow. He entered the name “Joe Louis” on the registration card for his first amateur fight. In 1934, Louis won the Amateur Athletic Union championship before turning professional. He became the heavyweight champion in 1937. At the onset of World War II, Louis entered the army and served in the same segregated unit as Hall of Fame Baseball player Jackie Robinson. Louis participated in numerous exhibition bouts and donated money to various relief efforts. The boxer achieved the rank of sergeant by the end of the war.

His grave is marked by a multi-hued brown headstone that has a bas-relief depicting Louis as a boxer. The monument also bears the inscription “The Brown Bomber,” one of his most famous nicknames.
