He was a retired Electronics Technician at Dixie/Jet TV in Metairie, LA. There wasn’t a TV, computer, radio, appliance or vehicle he couldn’t fix. In his younger years, you could find him enjoying a cold Dixie beer on a Sunday afternoon. He was a hard worker who never took a hand-out from anyone. He led by example, instilling that same work ethic in his five children. He will be sadly missed by his children and all who knew and loved him. Burial at 10 AM on May 3, 2021 at the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Cemetery, 34888 Grantham College Road (Adjacent to Camp Villere) Slidell, LA 70460.
