Landry Michael Verdin Jr, 62, of Des Allemands, LA passed away on November 15th, 2019.
With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Landry, our loving and devoted father and grandfather. He left us while sleeping peacefully during his visit with his sons in the Midwest. He lived a short, but full life of 62 years.
Born in Raceland, Louisiana, he was a hardworking man; spending his early years living off the land, hunting, fishing, trapping, and trawling. Landry was a welder and fitter by trade, working in various shipyards over the years.
There were few things Landry loved more than the excitement of hooking a huge catfish on the Bayou. He never missed a chance to hunt at the “camp” in the swamps and marsh, fish and frog in the Bayou with his brothers and friends, and travel up to the Midwest to hunt and fish with his family. He also was an avid Saints and LSU fan, never missing a game.
His love of music and live concerts assured that he was a familiar face at all of the local festivals. He frequently reminisced about the good old days when you could catch a great concert for $10. Rock, swamp rock & country were among his favorites. Most of all, he loved his family, never missing an opportunity to tell his boys and grandkids that he loved them.
Landry was a friend to many and brought a smile to everyone’s face with his colorful stories and genuine love for life and family. The hole he has left in our hearts is immense and we will forever cherish our time shared with him.
Landry was preceded in death by Landry Verdin Sr.
Landry will be greatly missed by his children Brent & Corey Verdin, Brian & Connie Verdin, Eric & Kelly Verdin; his Sisters Debra Verdin-Babin, Linda Verdin-Burdette; his brothers Edward, Larry, Steve & Richard Verdin; his mother Rose Mary Verdin; and grandchildren Haven, Sam, Gabriel, Brady, Chloe, Aubrey and Joslyn Verdin; and his good friend Henry Badeaux.
Cremation took place in Indiana, with his ashes to be spread at his request on the hunting grounds he loved so much with his sons and grandsons.
