Al was a quiet outdoorsman who treasured the simple things in life. He worked as a welder, a plumber, a carpenter and a farmer. Since he was a young boy, he enjoyed cat-fishing, hunting, frogging and camping out. He was a brave and adventurous man and spent years in the Atchafalaya Basin and the local bayous and waterways. His main outdoor passion in life was crawfishing, especially at his favorite ‘country place’ which was his Grandfather’s beloved farm and crawfish pond. Al was a kind-hearted person and often gave his last dollar to help anyone else in need. Along with his Grandfather, ‘Papa Toad’ and his Father, he loved raising various farm animals. He was also known for rescuing and feeding any injured, lost or abandoned animal. He enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews in ‘the country’ and will be greatly missed by all of his family, friends and his girlfriend Robin. He was a wonderful son and took care of his parents for years in his later life. He will never be forgotten.

Landry and her husband Mark of New Iberia, Pamela B. Desormeaux of Galveston, TX, Kim B. Coleman and her husband Lat of New Iberia, Tracey B. Etie and her husband Terry of Loreauville and Lisa B. Himel and her husband Jed of New Iberia; his godchildren, Anita Landry Helveston and Katie Klingler; his girlfriend, Robin Hebert of Coteau and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Georgia LeBlanc Buteaux and his brother-in-law, Kevin J. Desormeaux.
