On May 31, 2023, Lester Anthony Saucier, Jr. completed his masterwork of a life at 81 years. Crawfish or crab boil?? Yea, that’s Lester.
Born on January 7, 1942 in Plaucheville, Louisiana at home, the culture, and colors of Louisiana never left him. He attended University of Southwestern Louisiana holding a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering. A large portion of his education toward his degree was in the fields of mechanical and civil engineering. He practiced professional engineering from 1971 until 1 week before his journey. His decades of contribution and commitment included the Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce, just to name a few.
Lester’s zest for life extended beyond his work. He was a true outdoorsman. There’s not a golf course, hunting blind, or bayou he didn’t know like the back of his hand. It’s amazing how the tides, winds, or seasons of life didn’t fool him. As we bid farewell to this exceptional outdoorsman, we take solace in knowing that his spirit will forever roam the vast expanses he so dearly loved. Though his physical presence may be absent, his memory will continue to inspire us to cherish the moments he taught us - how to ‘bait the hook’, ‘breathe out slowly’ when pulling the trigger, and always put your money on LSU/Saints/ULL.
His infectious laughter and unwavering sense of humor brought joy to even the most challenging moments. He was a loyal and compassionate friend, always willing to lend a helping hand, share a kind word, or tell a colorful joke.
He'll be having a crawfish boil in heaven with the following loved ones: Lester A. Saucier, Sr. and Marie Saucier, daughter Donna Saucier Ferchak, Arlene Thibodeaux Saucier, Ryan C. Johnson, Jr., and Beau C. Johnson.
He is survived by his loving family: wife, Marialeice Jeffcote Saucier; seven children, Jade M. Saucier and wife Karen, Dana M. Dupuis and husband John, Tammy A. Saucier, Erron L. Saucier and wife Erika, Marc G. Saucier, Dominic J. Colletti, and Adrienne Poni Colletti; sister, Alice M. Duncan; 14 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren with another on the way; 2 great-great grandchildren, 5 Sister-in-laws, 5 Brother-in-laws; nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and extended family.
Rest in peace, dear friend.
A celebration of life will be held at the KC Hall in Bridge City, TX, Saturday, June 10th from 11 am to 2 pm.
