Lloyd Sensat was a most important teacher in the St. Charles Parish School System leading young students in his Education through Historic Preservation program.

He was instrumental in the proper structuring of Destrehan Plantation artifacts along with Eugene Cizek, a doctor of the Tulane School of Architecture. He was named Disney’s National Art teacher of the year and touched the lives of all with his fanciful art designs.

After his retirement from teaching he became a volunteer at the Father Francis Xavier Seelos Center and designed a memorial garden to honor Father Seelos at his Sun Oak home. He became active in the Save the Cemetaries program and gave tours. He also appeared as Father Noel during Christmastime. He dedicated his energies towards Fauburg Marigny projects and acted the part of Bernard Marigny in historic attire while conducting home tours of historic importance including his own beloved Sun Oak. He was instrumental, along with Cizek, in many developmental projects for continuing his education through historic preservation passion.

This beloved historian and artist died Friday, February 18, at Ocshner’s Hospital. Survivers include his mother, Marcella Stagg Sensat of Crowley.

The visitation will be Friday, February 25, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Mortuary Chapel of Our Lady of Guadalupe (St. Jude Shrine) on Rampart Street. A Jazz Funeral Mass will follow the visitation and afterward a Jazz Band will second line over to the St. Louis #1 cemetary and Lloyd Sensat will be buried in cremation urn in the Bernard de Marigny tomb with special appreciation from the family.
