NEW IBERIA – A Mass of Christian Burial celebrating the life of Danny J. Segura, Sr. will be held at 2:00 pm Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. Fr. Garret Savoie will be the celebrant. Following the mass, Danny will be laid to rest at Memorial Park Cemetery.

Danny was born April 15, 1950 in Erath to the late Enus Segura and the late Ledie LeBlanc Segura, and passed away Saturday, January 25, 2020 with his family at his side. He was 69.

Danny grew up in Vermilion Parish and went to school in Delcambre. He was quite the athlete in school on the track team and was honored in 1965 in Football as All District, All Southwest and Honorable Mention in All-State for Delcambre High School. His talents didn’t stop there as he played trumpet in the band and played piano.

He has worked in different jobs during his life, but was very proud to carry on his family heritage as a shrimper and operated his own boat, the Mary Carolyn. After some years he fulfilled a childhood goal of becoming a deputy and worked with the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Dept. for 10 years, something his mother was so very proud of. After that, he went to work with Fleming Foods as a merchandiser and then with Streva Distributing as the warehouse supervisor for 15 years until his retirement. Outside of work, Danny enjoyed many pastimes and hobbies. He raised fighting roosters and was an avid bowler and member of the New Iberia Bowlers Association. Danny also enjoyed playing cards and going dancing with Jo Ann. Above all else, his family was most important to him and he lived his life for them. Rest well Danny and until we meet again.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 25 ½ years, Jo Ann Guillot Segura; his children, Megan Van Wagner (Scott), Danny Segura, Jr. (Holly), Randy Segura, Jason Segura, and Brandy Trahan (Mitch); his grandchildren, Crichton Van Wagner, Decklin Van Wagner, Cody Segura, Ryan LeBlanc, Terrence Segura, Destiny Segura, Logan Darby, Brett Segura, Brayton Segura, Jacob Byers and Savannah Trahan; and his mother-in-law, Rosa Lancon.

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Ashley Segura; a brother and sister, Randy Jacob Segura and Nelta Meyers; his father-in-law, Louis Lancon; and a sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Glenda Guillot and Dyna Lancon

Honored to serve as pallbearers are Decklin and Crichton Van Wagner, Scott Van Wagner, Johnny Segura, Jr., Randy Segura, Jason Segura, Ryan LeBlanc, Cody Segura and Brayton Segura.

My condolences and prayers to the Segura family …. I have many fond memories of helping Danny clean the old property after the fire, helping to prepare to move the big house from Abbeville, and spending a 21 day hitch on the Mary Carolyn, just to see what shrimping was all about.

Danny worked for Streva Dist Co for 15 years from 2003 to 2018, that's when he got sick. Danny was a great employee who was dedicated to his job. It is with great sadness to hear of his passing. He was a hard worker and a good man. We will miss Danny! Rest in peace friend.

When I was younger we had a mini bike and four wheeler and whenever me and my brother wanted to go and ride me and my grandpa would go check all the little tidbits of them to make sure they were ready for us to ride and if they weren’t we would fix them up and get them ready.
