Tombstone Tuesday: A Fitting Start
As today is Tuesday, I wish to begin our series of “Tombstone Tuesday” with photographs of my father’s crypt, who passed away not long ago. I was unable to attend the funeral at the time, but our family held our own Memorial for him.
LAFAYETTE – A memorial mass will be held Saturday, January 17, 2009, at 9 a.m., in St. Patrick’s Church in Lafayette, for Lee Roy Hebert, Sr. “Bee”, 78, who passed away Sunday, January 11, 2009, at Meadowbrook Rehab Hospital in Lafayette.
Lee Roy was a native of Leroy and a resident of Lafayette for 64 years. As one last unselfish act, he donated his body to science.
Survivors include his wife of 48 years, Asalie Daigle Hebert, of Lafayette; one son, Leroy Hebert, Jr. and his wife, Tammy, of Breaux Bridge; two daughters, Jeri Backeberg and her husband, Tim, and Shirley Ulbrich and her husband, Jon, of California; four grandchildren; nine great grandchildren; three sisters, Jean Boudreaux, of Lafayette, Gloria Granger and husband, Ronald, of Scott, and Dorothy Campbell, of Lafayette; one brother, Curly Hebert and his wife, Thelma, of Scott; and numerous nieces, nephews, step grandchildren and step great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Otto Hebert and Lucet Broussard; one brother, Carroll Hebert; and one sister, Shirley Hebert.
He will be missed by family and friends.
