He worked as a salesman in the oilfield industry and in 1979 opened GEO Marine. Mac, as he was affectionately known was a great husband, father, grandfather, great and great great grandfather and brother. He was a great storyteller and had thousands of stories that he would share with anyone who would ask. He was often the major role player in his stories and it was easy to say he may have had some rough times in his life, but never a bad day. Mac, enjoyed the horse races and his favorite past time was filling out the horse racing forms. His greatest enjoyment was definitely spending time with his family and friends, who will miss him dearly.

He is survived by his three daughters, Carolyn “Fuzzy” Suire and husband Roland; Susan Davis and Lisa Umphries and husband Todd all of Delcambre; his two sons, David LeCompte and wife Melanie of Delcambre and Randy LeCompte of New Iberia; eighteen grandchildren; twenty six great grandchildren; one great great grandchild and one sister, Rose Marie “Putsy” Viator and husband Kenward of Prairieville.

He is preceded in death by his wife Joyce Theresa Plessala LeCompte; parents, Leonce Joseph and Pearl Broadhead LeCompte; three brothers, Wilbur LeCompte; Herbert LeCompte and Nolan LeCompte and three sisters, Nodilene L. LeCorgne; Mildred L. Hebert and Gloria L. Huckaby and two son in laws, Robert "Bob" Davis and Huey Thibodeaux.

So sorry for your loss. Pop was a wonderful father-in-law.. I always enjoyed listening to his stories and laughing with He and Ms Joyce. I know he will be missed dearly by his family and friends.. He was a special man who lived and loved life. When he named my youngest "Boss" he was absolutely correct.
Love Always
Jackie and Family.

To Mr Mac’s family,
I am so very sorry to hear about his passing. May he Rest In Peace. He was so very nice to me and my children every time we saw him. I can remember fishing off the wharf and he would say come fish anytime. Such an awesome man. Much love and prayers to all of you.

Your dad was such a wonderful guy. He was so funny and could always make me laugh. I’m sure he will be greatly missed. You are so fortunate to have had him for all these years. He had a life well lived.
