John Joseph Lajaunie Jr. (83) a native and life-long resident of Centerville, LA peacefully died on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 surrounded by family.

Family was everything to Johnny, and while he never had any children of his own, he loved each of his nieces and nephews as if they were his own. He was a life-long parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Centerville, where he devoted his life to serving God and those around him. He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and the St. Mary Parish Water District 5. He was dedicated to Knights of Columbus Bingo, where he was an avid facilitator of weekly bingo.

Johnny was preceded in death by his loving parents John Joseph Lajaunie Sr. and Effie Robichaux Lajaunie, sisters Juanita Lajaunie Boudreaux, Marie Lajaunie Walker, and Kathryn Lajaunie Hefner, brother Joseph Lajaunie Sr., niece Kim Hefner and nephew Paul Boudreaux. Johnny will be greatly missed, but his memories will be carried on by his twenty nieces and nephews and countless great-nieces and great-nephews, whom he loved dearly.

The visitation will be on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Centerville from 9:00-11:00 followed by a Mass of Christian Burial.

The family would like to express sincere gratitude to the dedicated doctors, nurses, and staff of Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center for their loving care of Johnny during his final days.

"Goodbyes are not forever, are not the end; it simply means I'll miss you until we meet again."
