Clovis Louis Deviney was born on July 28, 1951 in Bakersfield, California to Charles Louis and Mary Francis (Dodd) Deviney. He grew up in Oklahoma and attended school there. He was united in marriage to Marla Lois Lane on July 11, 1970 at the Fort Supply Baptist Church in Fort Supply, Oklahoma. They were blessed with three children: John, Erica and Tory. They made their first home in Medicine Lodge, Kansas before living in Sterling, Kansas, Wasco, California and May, Oklahoma.

In 1987 he met Misty Bandy and they were blessed with two children: Stephen and Desiree. Louie was a (Gentle Giant) like his dad and he did not have a disrespectful or rude thing to say about anyone. Louie's love for music started with a broom stick for a guitar.

Louie quit school after the 8th grade to wok cutting pulp wood in the 1970's along with his dad and brothers to help make a living for the family. Later he worked in the oilfield in the 1980's to roofing houses in the 1990's and back to the oilfield in 2000's until he retired from Atlas Drilling in 2016, he was never one to shy away from hard work. Through it all, his love and passion was playing guitar and singing, entertaining people with a band like Crossfire. He knew a lot of the people around here and more people knew him. The pulpwood business brought him to know two of his lifetime friends, Randell Carrell and Eldon Thomas. When his oilfield career started again, he worked along side his dad and brothers and later the tradition continued with Louie working along side his son John and many nephews. After retirement he took over "the Hill" and ran it with pride for a few years. Just being happy to do something and hang out with his friends.
