Paul Judson Le Doux

April 1, 1954May 30, 2019

Paul Judson Le Doux of Kyle, Texas, formerly of Richmond, Texas passed away May 30, 2019 surrounded by his family.

Paul was born on April 1, 1954 in Opelousas, Louisiana. He grew up in Bellaire, Texas and graduated from Bellaire High School. He married his sweetheart, Marjorie, on June 24, 1977, and over the years they welcomed five daughters. Paul began his firefighting career with Houston Civil Defense Volunteers in 1972 and became a career firefighter with Houston in 1978. In 1979, Paul joined the Stafford Volunteer Fire Department to aid his community. In 1989, with the help of his friends, Paul used his interests in construction to move to the Richmond area and build his growing family a larger home. Paul was often seen in the stands of school events recording his daughters’ performances. Several years after moving to the Richmond area, he joined the Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department as a firefighter and was later promoted to the rank of Chief. Under his leadership, the department built the much needed Station #2 on the north side of the subdivision. He was proud to be able to assist in the expansion of fire service to the area. Paul retired from the Houston Fire Department in 2012 at the rank of Captain and left the Pecan Grove Fire Department at the rank of Chief. In his retirement he enjoyed football, political talk shows, and his grandchildren, who affectionately called him “Mud”. Paul is preceded in death by his father, Leslie LeDoux. Paul is survived by his wife, Marjorie; his daughters and their spouses, Michelle and Ryan Chupik, Renée and Joseph Gilmore, Brigitte and Eric Johnson, Valerie and Kevin Smith, and Rachelle and Dylan Neiman; 10 grandchildren; his mother, Mildred; his brother and sister-in-law, Les and Arlene Le Doux and 3 nephews. Paul’s memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday, June 7, 2019 at Earthman Bellaire Funeral Home in Bellaire, Texas. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to Shriners Hospitals for Children - Galveston to continue their work in healing children with life-altering burns.

I worked as the paramedic at station 3-C with Captain Le Doux. We often had a good laugh as we told him that at the station was the only place he “ruled the house “ as he was always talking about his all girl house. He never went a day without bragging on his daughters and home. May you find rest and peace. David Almaguer, Asst. Fire Chief, HFD Retired.

I have known Judd as we knew him since late 60’s. We both attended the same church and became great friends. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Marjorie and family, even though we weren’t as close in the past years, you were a great and longest friend. RIP my friend

To the Le Doux family, My sincere sympathy for a fine man. He and his wife was always so helpful as a parent volunteers throughout all the girls years in school, as they raised five beautiful and kind daughters that always were a joy to know. He loved you all so much. I had the privilege to be involved with this family from elementary thru high school. With warm memories...Joan Wiethorn
