Anthony Louis Zeringue

Anthony Louis Zeringue passed away peacefully on April 5, 2022 at the age of 64. He was born on March 28, 1958 and was a longtime resident of St. Charles Parish.

He was preceded in death by his parents, J. Leonard Zeringue and Phedelise Ann Schexnaydre.

He is survived by his children, LeeAnn Zeringue, Daniel Zeringue, and Erin Zeringue, and his grandchildren, Eva and Oliver. He is also survived by his siblings, Leonard Zeringue (Susan), Robert Zeringue (Hope), Edmond Zeringue, Winona Champagne, Joan Robbins, Lynette Tamplain, Douglas Zeringue, Marten Zeringue ( Nancy), as well as many nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Anthony graduated from Hahnville High School where he excelled on the football team. He worked at Zeringue Distributors for 35 years as a milkman where he picked up many cooking tips while hobnobbing with restaurant chefs during deliveries. He was a people person who loved his family and friends and always kept them laughing (especially when he taught everyone to do the “Uncle Tony Face”). He was an avid gardener and beekeeper, and loved sharing homegrown fruits and vegetables with his friends and neighbors. He spent much of his life outdoors and was always happy to go on a fishing or hunting trip. Tony could build or fix anything and had great artistic talent that he passed along to his children. When he struggled with his mobility, he kept himself busy by teaching himself to make beautiful rosaries that he shared with his loved ones. He had the gift of being able to make anyone feel important and like they could achieve anything. He will be remembered for his love for life, his determination to always achieve his goals, and for so often beating the odds levied against him.

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Luling, LA. Visitation will be held from 9 AM – 11 AM with a Mass to begin at 11 AM. Interment will follow at Holy Rosary Cemetery in Taft.

In lieu of flowers, Joan Robbins will be accepting donations for a gift to St. Anthony in Tony’s name.
