Harry Louis Trepagnier, 69, quietly passed away on Jan. 3, 2020 from the ravages of frontotemporal dementia.
He was born on May 29, 1950 to Harry Louis Trepagnier Sr. and Beulah Montz Trepagnier in New Orleans and raised in New Sarpy with his five siblings. Harry was a dedicated and proud New Orleans fireman and retired as captain after 37 years on the job while also maintaining a successful painting business.
Through the years, Harry enjoyed vacationing with his family, especially in Disney World and Florida beaches; playing and watching sports such as Zephyrs and Saints; listening to various types of music particularly classical and “WTIX Oldies” at Treasure Chest where he was a regular; reading and playing board games such as “Parcheesi” in which he was a master; and his favorite TV show was “The Three Stooges.” What he loved most was spending time with his family, deep conversations, and eating … in or out having several favorite restaurants. He was also adamant about exercising and staying healthy.
Harry was a true gentleman who was caring, thoughtful, polite, kind, and giving. He was a self-identified “goofball” who found humor even in the most difficult situations, cracking jokes with his friends, brothers and son, and playfully teasing his daughters and sisters.
Harry is pre-deceased by his grandparents, parents and brother Mark J Trepagnier (Vali). He is survived by his most loved and precious gifts, his children: Tina T. Hanberry, Erin T. Richardson (Alvin), and Adam L. Trepagnier and his loving grandchildren: Dylan “Bubba Do”, Connor, and Logan. He is also survived by his siblings: Camille T. Brewton, Pamela T. Dufrene (Nathan), Laura T. Whann (Bobby), and Timothy J. Trepagnier, and many nieces and nephews.
Services will be private and donations may be made in Harry’s name to: The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration www.theaftd.org.
Harry’s family would like to thank Sunrise Assisted Living and Ormond Nursing Care, his nurses and caregivers for their consistent and tender care, as well as St. Catherine’s Hospice for their guidance, care, support, and kindness through this journey. May you be at peace sweet Harry, while playing cards with your mom, being silly and tinkering with your brother, and clowning around with “Curly.” You will forever be loved and missed.
