Donald “Don” Patrick Lasseigne, 69, a resident of Bayou Vista, passed away on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at Thibodaux Regional Health System, surrounded by his loving family.
Don was born on November 23, 1951 in Morgan City, the son of Jessie M. Lasseigne and Alberta Brizzard Lasseigne.
For more than 30 years Don found great enjoyment serving the customers of Frank’s Motor Company as service manager and working for Mr. Frank; he considered his co-workers to be family. After retirement, he found things to keep him busy and would oftentimes tell people that he never really retired, but was under new management, Sybil’s. He loved spending time with his family, and his grandchildren meant everything to him; he cherished the time that he was able to spend with them. Don truly loved serving his wife and loved spending time with her. It didn’t matter what they were doing as long as they were together. He loved camping, especially at Lake End Park, where he met many dear friends.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 49 years, Sybil Landry Lasseigne of Bayou Vista; two sons, Sean Lasseigne and Gregory Lasseigne and wife Katie, both of Bayou Vista; six grandchildren, Liam Lasseigne, Colin Lasseigne, Kali Lasseigne, Jayde Lasseigne and boyfriend Carson LeBlanc, all of Bayou Vista, Madison Doiron of Thibodaux, Benjamin Lasseigne and girlfriend Catilynn Ackerman of Patterson; one brother, Richard Lasseigne and wife June of Patterson; one sister, Ann Lasseigne of Morgan City; two brothers-in-law, David Landry and wife Jennifer and Michael Landry and wife Cindy, both of Bayou Vista; two sisters-in-law, Cheryl Breaux and husband Marvin of Patterson and Diana LeBlanc of Franklin along with a host of nieces and nephews.
Don was preceded in death by his parents, Jessie and Alberta Brizzard Lasseigne; one brother, Michael Lasseigne; father-in-law, Lee Landry; mother-in-law, Hazel Landry Roy and her husband Harold.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers will be Ben Lasseigne, Wesley Knight, Joseph Lasseigne, Matthew Breaux, Zach Sprayberry and Nick Guillot. Colin Lasseigne will serve as an honorary pallbearer.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the 3rd Floor Critical Care Unit at Thibodaux Regional Health System, as well as the nurses and staff with St. Joseph Hospice for the loving care that they gave to Don.
