Obituary of Gabriel Austin DeArmond
Gabriel Austin DeArmond was born on January 19th, 2022 at 11:54 p.m. at Ochsner Baptist to Austin and Valerie DeArmond. 366 days later, he was joyfully received into the loving embrace of Jesus Christ at 12:30 a.m. Gabe, or Gabey Baby as his sister affectionately named him, was a true joy to all who met him. His smile was infectious, his curiosity was deep, and he truly exuded love every single moment of his short life on earth. Some of his favorite pastimes included playing with his Momma’s hair, eating his weight in whatever food put before him, riding in his wagon around the neighborhood, bouncing balls around the house, pulling off Daddy’s books from his bookshelf, growling like a bear, yelling at Alexa to play music, splashing around during bathtimes, and intently watching any animal that came within eyesight. Gabe was the pride and joy of his sister. Both siblings found each other to be truly hilarious. Countless hours were spent playing with toys, dancing, and enjoying each other. Gabe looked up to Addison and she watched over him until the end. Addie was his best friend. Gabe is survived by his father (Austin), his mother (Valerie), his sister (Addison), his great grandparents Pawpaw Lou, Mawmaw Charlene, Pawpaw Johnnie, his Ma’mom and Pa’pop, his granny, his uncles Tyler, Don, Nick, Cade, his aunts Leelee, Lizzie, Brittany, Leelo, Aunt Yell and his wonderful cousins Jonah, Marley, Lily, James, and Archer as well as a church full of people who dearly loved Gabe. The family would like to thank the St Charles parish EMS and the hospital staff at the Metairie and New Orleans Children's Hospital for every single thing that was done to save and sustain his precious life. Austin and Valerie want to extend their immense gratitude to their family, church, and friends who encouraged, prayed for, and loved Gabriel from the beginning to the end of his earthly life. They also want to praise and thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the gift, the honor, and the privilege of those 366 days that were given with Gabriel. Services will be held on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at First Baptist New Orleans, 5290 Canal Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70124. Visitation will begin at 1:00PM followed by a service at 3:00PM. Interment will be at Jefferson Memorial Garden. Clergy: Brandon Langley, Drew O’Neal, Stephen Picard, and Ray Telschow
