My sincere condolences to Lett and L.J.'s sisters and family. L.J. was a good man who never met a stranger and always willing to help someone in need. He loved life and going to his camp. We all will miss him. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel.

LJ and I were old friends from Wyandotte, sometimes going for years without seeing him ,he never forgot my name. Anytime I would see him it was like we had never lost touch.He was always an upbeat kind of person always friendly. Even though he was a few years older we always had something to talk about and he was always glad to see me. R.I.P. My friend.

I met LJ in 1997 when he and Let acquired a lot and moved a houseboat to bayou Magazelle. It was easy to become friends with a guy who seemed to worry more about your projects than the ones he had going. In later years I would jokingly tell him he was no longer welcome to work at my camp because my cuts weren’t as exact as his, my lines weren’t as straight, my tool shed wasn’t as neat, and in general he was causing me domestic problems 😂. I will miss the fish fries, his lucky red boo-ray quarter, our fishing trips, using his tool shed for a bayou hardware store and a wonderful friend. Rest In Peace LJ.

LJ and Let have been our next door neighbor for 16+ years and a better neighbor/friend I could not have imagined. He picked up and held my mail for me when work took me away from home for weeks at a time, watched over my house when I was away, and was always happy to lend a helping hand to his sometimes helpless females next door with fixing things or lending us just the right tool. It has been a comfort knowing he was there for us. My granddaughter Anamaria especially loved “Mr. LJ” for his huge jars of pickled okra and giant bag of skittles he’d get her for Halloween when she was a very little girl. Let, our hearts are broken for you and please know we are just next door should you need ANYTHING. We love you and although greatly saddened by LJ’s passing, our hearts can be at peace because his fight is over and he is now healthy and resting in the arms of God. We will miss him terribly but he remains in our hearts and memories.

Living in Patterson in my teen years I would see LJ every day when I went to the post office to pick up our mail. Our friendship went well beyond that though because as a young boy living in Greenwood he seemed to find time to play catch or do other things with the younger kids like me and Sammy Joe Siracusa. That still means a lot to me. Really a great guy with a big heart. I will remember him always.

Let and family I am very sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
