Harry L. Trepagnier

May 29, 1950January 3, 2020

Harry Louis Trepagnier quietly passed away on January 3, 2020 at age 69 from the ravages of frontotemporal dementia. He was born on May 29, 1950 to Harry Louis Trepagnier, Sr. and Beulah Montz Trepagnier in New Orleans and raised in New Sarpy, LA with his five siblings. Harry was a dedicated and proud New Orleans Fireman and retired as Captain after 37 years on the job while also maintaining a successful painting business. Through the years, Harry enjoyed vacationing with his family, especially in Disney World and Florida beaches; playing and watching sports such as Zephyrs and Saints; listening to various types of music particularly classical and “WTIX Oldies” at Treasure Chest where he was a regular; reading and playing board games such as “Parcheesi” in which he was a master; and his favorite TV show was “The Three Stooges”. What he loved most was spending time with his family, deep conversations, and eating…in or out having several favorite restaurants. He was also adamant about exercising and staying healthy. Harry was a true gentleman who was caring, thoughtful, polite, kind, and giving. He was a self-identified “goofball” who found humor even in the most difficult situations, cracking jokes with his friends, brothers and son, and playfully teasing his daughters and sisters. Harry is pre-deceased by his grandparents, parents, and brother, Mark J Trepagnier (Vali). He is survived by his most loved and precious gifts, his children: Tina T. Hanberry, Erin T. Richardson (Alvin), and Adam L. Trepagnier and his loving grandchildren: Dylan “Bubba Do”, Connor, and Logan. He is also survived by his siblings: Camille T. Brewton, Pamela T. Dufrene (Nathan), Laura T. Whann (Bobby), and Timothy J. Trepagnier, and many nieces and nephews. Services will be private and donations may be made in Harry’s name to: The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration www.theaftd.org. Harry’s family would like to thank Sunrise Assisted Living and Ormond Nursing Care, his nurses and caregivers for their consistent and tender care, as well as St. Catherine’s Hospice for their guidance, care, support, and kindness through this journey. May you be at peace sweet Harry, while playing cards with your mom, being silly and tinkering with your brother, and clowning around with “Curly”. You will forever be loved and missed.

Harry was my best friend at DHS. He was one of the few that made me feel at home in Louisiana. From the time we hitchhiked to Baton Rouge, to the last night I was on Canal St before I left to go into the navy, (in his word, "forever"), to the time he came to Westminster, CO and we went bobsledding on Bear Lake in the foothills of the Rockies. I will remember him. And I am missing him.

There are so many fond memories with Harry, too many to mention. We will never forget the good times shared with him and his family. Esther and Harry were always so hospitable. Harry was a family man and a true friend who you could always call on if you needed anything. Although we were disconnected for quite a few many years recently, we will always remember him fondly. Our Deepest condolences to his family and his children Erin and Adam.

I've yet to know a kinder soul than that of my lighthearted, life-assertive cousin Harry, and I've always had nothing but ongoing love, respect, and admiration for him. Heaven is a much richer place, having added his sweet spirit to its ranks. It's comforting to know that Harry is at peace, safe in the arms of our Lord and Savior.

I enjoyed working with Harry at the NOFD. He talked me into playing tennis with him one morning. I could not see his serve, much less return it. God rest his soul.

I had the pleasure to be a friend of Harry's when we grew up together in New Sarpy. We rode the same bus to school in Destrehan. We played football and baseball at the various vacant lots in New Sarpy. We grew apart after high school graduation, but I have always felt an affection for those good old days when he and I played together. Rest in peace, Harry. The world lost a good and kind man when you left. - Greg
