Henry Paul Daigle

October 10, 1933 — April 25, 2022

Henry Paul Daigle, 88, a resident of Morgan City, passed away peacefully on Monday, April 25, 2022 at his home.

Henry was born on October 10, 1933 in 4 Mile Bayou the son of Elphege Daigle and Flavia Jarrett Daigle.

At a very early age Henry was shown the value of hard work by his father, as they lived in the bayou and lived off the land. Henry would go run trout lines with Elphege before school every morning before going to school and then walk to work before and after school. Henry was a bidding and estimate engineer with McDermott Shipyard for many years. 

Henry met the love of his life, Mona Rose, it truly was love at first sight and together they created a beautiful life together. Henry loved his family and cherished every moment he was able to spend with them, and loved all the naps he got to take with his dog Shadow. Henry loved life and lived it to the fullest always ready for a good camping trip, traveling with his wife, or a simple trip to the park to feed the ducks. Henry had a heart of gold and he loved people and was the type of person who would truly give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. He was a member of the St. Mary AARP and always loved attending the dances held there; he also had a love for music and loved to sing.

He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by two children, Dirk P. Daigle and significant other Renee McClure and Kristie Daigle Courtney and husband Greg, both of Morgan City; four grandchildren, Jason Boyd and wife Stacey, Joshua D. Daigle and wife Melissa, Jonathan Courtney and wife Danielle and Jamie Lyn Courtney; six great grandchildren, Reed, Landon, Laurel, Bryce, Brady and Valerie.

Henry was preceded in death by his parents; the love of his life, Mona Rose Leopold Daigle; four siblings, William Daigle, Allen Daigle, Inez Prestenbach and Enola Besse.

The family would like to thank the staff and nurses with Heart of Hospice, especially Neicey, Danielle and Stephanie; as well as the staff of Home Instead for the wonderful care they gave to Henry.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
