Landry (husband Rodney), grandson, Ryan Defelice (wife Erica), great-grandson, Aidan, brothers, Raymond (wife Vivian) and Claude (wife Bonnie), sister, Claudette (husband Jim), and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Euphrasie G. and JOhn Defelice Sr., and brother, Stephen.

He was a retired cattleman, member of the Third and Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus, Holy Name Society and a church usher for many years.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Joseph Hospice Foundation, 17732 Highland Road, Suite G, Box 241, Baton Rouge, LA 70810, in his name.

Services were held on March 23 at Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Larose with interment at the church cemetery.
