lecoq-leory-cropped-resized-photo2 Timothy 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me, the crown of righteousness…”   He was a native of Morganza and a resident of Baton Rouge.  Leroy LeCoq took hold of his Savior’s hand on Monday, October 17, 2016 at the beautiful age of 83, surrounded by his loving family.  He set the bar high for what a husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle should be.  He was a gentle, kind, loving, joyful man with a sense of humor we will never forget.  He brought enormous smiles to the faces of all who knew him.  To know him, was to love him.  If there is one word to describe him, it would be “simple.”  He loved the Lord greatly and leaves behind a legacy that we will carry on.  He was a veteran of the United States Army, and was retired from Carpenter’s Local 1098.  Visitation will be held at Fellowship Baptist Church, 14512 Greenwell Springs Rd, Greenwell Springs, LA 70739, on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 from 5:00pm until 9:00pm, and again on Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 9:00am until religious services at 11:00am, conducted by Bro. Jeremy Pruit, his pastor whom he loved since the moment he met him.  Interment will be at Sand Hill Cemetery in Walker. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Joyce Lea LeCoq; daughters and sons in law, Terri & Craig Pourcciau, and Shannon & Brian Guidry; son and daughter in law, Duane & Leonore LeCoq; sisters, Inez Serio, and Hilda Vosburg; grandchildren, Jacob Pourciau & wife Brandi, Jessica Taylor & husband Brad, Jenna Pourciau, Joseph Pourciau, Ashley LeCoq, Nicole LeCoq, Madison LeCoq, Katelynn LeCoq, Abby Guidry, Annie Guidry, and Ella Guidry; great-grandchildren, Brantly Pourciau, and Rylie Taylor; and numerous nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Dolsey LeCoq; sisters, Wilma Catlett, and Audrey Spillers; brothers, infant brother, Floyd LeCoq, Clarence LeCoq, and Winfield LeCoq; three nephews, and one niece.  Pallbearers will be Jacob Pourciau, Joseph Pourciau, Brad Taylor, Phillip LeCoq, Randy Vosburg, Bill LeCoq, Michael Lea, and Kevin Lea.  Honorary pallbearer will be Donald Catlett.  He was an active member of Fellowship Baptist Church and Berean Sunday School Class, and was ordained as a deacon.  Our deepest thanks to the precious ones God sent his way whom he adored, Dr. David Moll, Christee Sanchez, RN, Christy Munozcan, RN, and Hospice of Baton Rouge.
