Gregory Timothy Discon

April 30, 1966January 8, 2019

Gregory Timothy Discon, 52, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 after he sustained injuries from a car accident in Mandeville, Louisiana. “Greg” was born on April 30, 1966 in New Orleans, Louisiana to his beloved parents, Nancy Lee Massa Discon and John Gerard Discon, who he now joins in Heaven. Greg attended Jesuit High School of New Orleans and went on to graduate college from Loyola University New Orleans with a bachelor’s degree in finance. He then graduated from Mississippi College School of Law. Greg worked alongside his father, John Gerard, and brothers, Thomas Massa and Scott Greaves Joseph and then went on to work at other firms in the New Orleans area.

Greg loved his family and friends, his chocolate labs, Snickers and Junior, boating on Lake Ponchartrain, watching LSU and Saints football, and listening to music by his favorite bands, Depeche Mode and The Cure. Although Greg grew up in New Orleans, he treasured the many summers he spent with his family and friends at “the camp” on the Northshore of Lake Ponchartrain.

Greg was preceded in death by his parents and his older brother, David Patrick. He is survived by his sister, Lynne Ann; his brothers, John Gerard, Jr., Thomas Massa, Michael Casey, and Scott Greaves Joseph; his nieces and nephews, Molly Malloy Jackson, Caroline Malloy Schwartz, John Gerard Discon, III, Tara Discon Thomas, Natalie Theresa Discon, David Lawrence Discon, Charlotte Discon Strief, Megan Kathleen Discon, and Marissa Lee Discon; his great nieces and nephews, John Gerard Discon, IV, Connor James Discon, Brady Joseph Discon, Myah Michelle Discon, Laurel Lee Jackson, Anna Claire Jackson, John Sanders Schwartz, III, Madelyn Grace Schwartz, Kathryn Leigh Thomas, Luke Bennett Thomas, and Rhey Thomas Strief. He was a dear brother-in-law to Deborah McCracken Discon and Charles Scott Williams. A visitation will be held on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home at 5100 Ponchartrain Boulevard, New Orleans, Louisiana 70124.

Dear Family,
I have copy of an old picture (c.1914) which shows Greg’s grandfather (and my godfather), Thomas Discon , Jr. (standing at right). Sitting next to him is his oldest sister, Sidonia Discon Preis, my grandmother. The older couple in the middle are Thomas Discon, Sr. and Anita Carreno Discon, the great grandparents we have in common. The little girl between them is my mother, Marie Anita Preis Christensen. We are all children of immigrants in New Orleans and pray for our large family here and in heaven. Condolences and bless you all. RIP, Greg, another fisherman in heaven.

I spent one of the greatest summers of my life with Greg Discon and his family on Lake Pontchartrain. We fished, sailed the hobie cat, and fished some more. Greg decided (with some vociferous hints from his father) it might be a good idea that we try and make some income from our fishing. We both learned that gas, bait, ice, etc. was not free. Greg spoke with the seafood manager of a local grocer in Slidell that we could provide fresh fish fillets to the store daily for income. It was my first business partnership, more importantly a cherished friendship was created with Greg over that summer that I will never forget. May he find love, peace and happiness in the comfort of the Lord.

Our family is saddened to hear about the loss of Greg. He lived across the street from us,the Durbins, and directly across the street from the Boubedes. I remember him as a child running around the yard playing. His family was so friendly. They were the best neighbors! Your old neighbors send our love and prayers to you,Greg, and to your sweet,beautiful family. Cathy Durbin Mutter and family

Thomas and the entire Discon family, I kind of remember him from back when Tom and I went to school at Jesuit, Class of 77. Been a long time, only touching base every 5 years at our reunions. So very sorry for your loss. May he Rest In Peace with the other family members and watch over all of you, like the others have been doing. AMDG.
