Ray Allen Primeaux

June 28, 1954 – December 10, 2022

Ray Allen Primeaux, 68, born in Crowley and a lifelong resident of Patterson, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 10, 2022.

Ray was a proud veteran of the United States Army having served during the Vietnam War. He worked his entire career as a mechanic, working mainly on diesel engines and heavy equipment. A family man through and through nothing made him happier than being with those he loved. He was an avid LSU and Patterson Lumberjacks football fan who enjoyed the game as though he was right there playing. He had a great sense of humor and loved nothing more than making others laugh.  Music was a passion he held close to his heart and even worked in his spare time as a DJ. Prior to his declining health, Ray enjoyed hunting, fishing, spending time on the water and riding motorcycles. A bright light is gone from our sight with Rays passing but his memory will live on in all who were fortunate to have known him.

Ray is the beloved husband of Janice DeHart Primeaux of 33 years; the loving father of April Primeaux (Harvey) and Brandon Burgess (Olivia); proud grandfather of Ricky BubbaLeBlanc, Noah Moose LeBlanc, and Marcos Burgess; brother to Joe Jr., Jimmy, Henry, and Hubert Primeaux (Karen); and brother-in-law to Kathy Primeaux Carlin. He is also survived byhis godchild, Sonia Henry, a host of nieces, nephews, in-laws, and all of his neighborhood grandkids.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Wilfred Primeaux Sr. and Effie LeBouef Primeaux; his brother, Randy Primeaux; nephews, Eddie Primeaux and Hubert Primeaux Jr.; in-laws, Martin DeHart and Marjorie Dontay DeHart; and brother-in-law, Ronald DeHart.
