Edgar A. Landry, 89, died peacefully in the evening hours of Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at the Franklin Health Care Center surrounded by his family. Garro, as he was affectionately known by many, was born in Franklin, one of ten children born to the late A. E. "Gee" Landry and the late Cecilia Pesson Landry. He honorably served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War. Following his military service, on February 20, 1955 he married the love of his life, Joyce Cole, and began raising their family. They moved to Baldwin shortly after marrying, and have resided there ever since. In his early years, he worked for his uncle's plumbing business, W. C. Bourque Plumbing, for 25 years before going to work for himself in the plumbing business, working for another 37 years until retiring in 2007. Garro was also a former volunteer fireman as well as a former Captain for the Baldwin Fire Department, and was a former longtime member of the American Legion and Lion's Club. He loved the outdoors and going to Camp Masco, enjoyed fishing, and was an avid duck hunter. Following his hunting days, he also enjoyed raising ducks. Another favorite pastime was watching Saints and LSU football. But what truly brought joy to his life was spending time with his family and friends, especially his grandchildren, who were the sparkle in his eye.

Those he leaves to cherish his memory include his wife of 63 years, Joyce Cole Landry; five children, Kathy L. Neal of Carencro, Mark Landry and his wife Robin of Franklin, Glenn Landry and his wife Robin of Breaux Bridge, Craig Landry of Atlanta, and Scott Landry and his wife Kara of Franklin; four grandchildren, Mandy Neal Waguespack and her husband Simon of Mire, Joshua Landry and his wife Hallie of Youngsville, and Landon and Bryson Landry, both of Franklin; four great grandchildren, Cooper, Cullin, and Harlee Waguespack, and Lawson Landry; four siblings, Alfred "Mouse" Landry, Marie L. Brown, Janet L. Willis, and Tommy Landry; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, family members, and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one son, Randy J. Landry; and five siblings, Elise L. Louviere, Robert Landry, Preston Landry, Lester Landry, and an infant sister.

A gathering of family and friends will be held at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Baldwin on Monday, May 7, 2018, beginning at 9:00 a.m., followed by the Holy Rosary being prayed at 10:00 a.m. A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 11:00 a.m. with Father Cedric Sonnier celebrating the Mass. Inurnment with Military Honors will follow in the Sacred Heart Cemetery Mausoleum.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Dr. Roland Degeyter and staff, the staff of Franklin Health Care Center, and the staff of Heart of Hospice for the compassionate care given to Mr. Garro.
