OBITUARY

David Allen Didier

April 28, 1947June 16, 2020

David Allen Didier, proud native of New Roads, Louisiana, passed on to his heavenly reward peacefully on June 16, 2020 in Covington, Louisiana. He was 73 years of age. David attended LSU as well as the School of Banking of the South; he was a banker for 42 years while working for American Bank and Trust in Baton Rouge, Whitney National Bank in New Orleans, and Hancock Bank in Mississippi. He was an avid gardener, traveler, woodworker, fisherman and vintage car enthusiast. Ford Mustangs were his passion and he attended countless car shows with friends in all areas of the country. He owned and renovated numerous vintage vehicles of all makes and models. David was a die-hard LSU fan-the ‘Bleed Purple and Gold’ kind. He always knew the most obscure statistics about the Tigers past and present. His speculations about the future of Tiger athletics was always right on the money. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Jacqueline; his son Hannon; his daughter Michele, son-in-law Anthony, and grandson Kevin; his brother Joseph Albert and sister-in-law Barbara; and his faithful beagle Snoopy. Final arrangements are private. David and his family visited almost all of the National Parks in the contiguous United States and recommend donations in his memory to be made in lieu of flowers to: http://give.nationalparks.org/goto/daviddidier . An online guestbook is available at www.gracenorthshore.com.

I Love him as much as my own father. He taught me a great deal in my life. I am a far better person for having him in my life. He may have been the first person that ever photo bombed.

I am so sad about David's passing. He was one of the sweetest people that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was a great co-worker and friend. He was a constant encourager. He was actually the one that encouraged me to pursue the career that I am currently in at the bank. We talked often about car shows and our love of vintage automobiles. We talked of our faith and also of our love for traveling. And of course our mutual love for LSU! If he was your friend, he was a true and genuine friend. He was always outspoken about his love for his wife Jackie. He adored her! I have no doubt that I will see him again in our eternal home with the Lord. God bless his dear family!

In deepest sympathy,

Many sympathies to the family. I only h ad the pleasure of knowing David for 5 or 6 years but deeply admired him. I miss our morning chats at the bank before anyone else got there and then he would ride with me to Gulfport for a while. I am so very sorry for your loss and the world lost a truly great man.

Jackie, Hannon, Michele, and family, I am so sorry to hear about David. David, you, and all the family are in my prayers.

I remember David from the Scout campouts we made with Hannon and Brian. David was so dedicated and attended so many more meetings and campouts than me. He was so knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I think he was an excellent example for all the young Scouts.

I had the utmost pleasure of being Mr. David’s nurse for the last 3 weeks he was here on this earth. He was absolutely one of the nicest and kindest patients I ever dealt with. Always a smile and so determined to be self sufficient. His illness never stopped him. He adored his wife Ms. Jackie and called her the love of his life. He was also a proud father and grandfather. As I was leaving the night he left us he thanked me for everything I did for him. Never did I think I would not see him again. We had quite a few talks over those 3 weeks. In that short period of time I got to know him as the person he was. What a man. What a gem he was. I will remember him always and hold a very special place in my heart for him.
Much love and great sympathy to your family.

I know they are greeting each other in heaven and Herb is showing him the ropes . Will be praying for your understanding and peace. Love Paula and all the family
