John was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, and friend. He was affectionately known to many as “Uncle Buck.” He loved his family dearly and gave of himself to his community and all who had the privilege of knowing him. His great sense of humor and generous and loving soul will remain in the hearts and minds of all who knew him along with each life that he touched in his own special way. All those who knew him loved him. His compassion, gentle spirit and kindness touched the lives of so many. John loved to fish with family and friends then host a fish fry for everyone.
He was the founder of Gulfland Office Supplies, Inc. in 1967 and owned and operated that family business for 34 years.

Landry, and Adrianne Landry Henry, all of Morgan City. Special recognition goes to Adrianne, who provided loving care for him in his final few years.
