Leroy Joseph Vedros Sr.

August 5, 1936October 3, 2020

Leroy Joseph Vedros earned his angel wings on October 3, 2020 after years of pain and suffering. Leroy was the loving husband of 58 years to Vera Plaisance Tassin Vedros. Son of the late Alceste and Maude Arcement Vedros. Brother of Betty Eschette (the late Warren) and the late Robert Vedros. Dad to the late Robert Birk Tassin Jr. and Dawn Tassin Shaw Tabor (Riley.) Grandfather of Jessica Tassin Trosclair (Matthew), Natasha Shaw Watts (Joel), and Matthew M. Shaw (Tana.) Great-Grandfather to Heaven Imbornone, Gavin Imbornone, Malakai Trosclair, Everly Shaw, Aurora Watts, and Sean Bruce. Also survived by aunts, cousins, and other relatives. Leroy retired from J.Ray McDermotte after 30 years. Leroy devoted over 25 years of volunteering with the Krewe of King Arthur building floats and helping anyway he could. Leroy enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, sitting on the front porch, cooking for his family using his Chief Chef skills, and giving advice to all who loved him. He was truly one of a kind and his stories, jokes, and quick wit will forever be in our memory. The family would like to express their love to special friends Chad Usea and Philip Fricano Jr. for their year of love and friendship. The family would also like to thank Heart of Hospice for their care and kindness to Leroy. Services will be private. Express condolences at

Condolences to the family and sympathy to all. Especially his family of his late son, Leroy Vedros, Jr. , wife Monica , his 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.. I imagine it was just overlooked in the obituary. ... May he be reunited with his son if their paths cross...

To my father, I have loved you all my life. I was a really good daughter. Taking care of you, was a pleasure and came so easy for me! I know you are walking on streets of Gold now. Mom is with Riley and I, we are enjoying her being here. She misses you so much, but I think she has peace just knowing that she will be fine. Anyway I just wanted to say you are missed and loved so much! Love your daughter Dawn!
