My thoughts and prayers are with the Lousteaus. One of my fondest memories of growing up on Clayton Dr in Norco is riding my bike up front to Lousteau’s Auto Sales up & down that cement ramp that is still there today. Then we would go inside down in “the basement” where the candy machines were. The employees always let us kids stay and eat snacks. May Gordon rest in peace with our Lord.

What a great, upbeat, funny guy Gordon was. Always laughing and smiling big. From working with him at Lousteau's to worshipping with him at Sacred Heart, he was always a super person to be around. And he loved to sing too. Well "Honey", you can sing with the angels now. May you rest in peace! Our heartfelt condolences to the family of Gordon! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I am truly saddened by the passing of a most loving and special gentleman.
Even after I was no longer officially a daughter in law, he insisted I keep calling him "Daddy". We stayed close through the years exchanging cards, letters & phone calls.
Daddy, I will always be your "SLLL" as you called me. I was his Sweet, Lovely, Little Lady. Rest now. You are safe and in His loving arms. I will miss you !!
Love & sympathies to his family & friends.

Mr. Gordon was the BEST neighbor my Mom, Rita Sikes could ever ask for. He was always in a great mood and willing to do anything to help. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Rest In Peace Mr. Gordon.

I am sorry for you loss. Even though I did not know Gordon well, I have a warm and fond memory of him singing songs and playing the ukulele at St. James Place for Bubsy (George) Lasseigne. He made me smile.

My heart is broken. What a wonderful man Honey was, we had so much fun with him and Ms. Rai every summer when we would go down there me and my 2 sons (Lynn, and Kirk). He made some beautiful furniture and she painting them so beautifully. I still have some of them and all the memories we shared. Thanks Chuck and Lane for all the fun you shared with us. Honey will be missed by his grandson Kirk and great granddaughter Heidi.
Love to all the Lousteaus and God Bless all the family.

Although I haven't had the pleasure of seeing Gordon for a good many years (I moved away), I'll always remember my cousin as a fun, smart, witty, fun-loving gentleman whom I looked up to. He was an honorable man who served His God and loved his family. I offer his loved ones my heartfelt sympathy at this difficult time, and I pray the Lord's blessings upon you all.

My thoughts go out to the family of Honey, he was a wonderful and the coolest guy that I've spent many of years around with his sons. He was always a happy dude and definitely can cook ome mean green peas. Many of great times and memories around Honey, may he rest in peace.
