Lawrence Anthony (Larry) Giroir, Jr. died peacefully at home, surrounded by loving family and friends, on January 24, 2023, at age 85. He was born February 28, 1937, to Lawrence A. Giroir, Sr., and Dorothy Chaisson Giroir.

Larry was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and a 1955 graduate of Sacred Heart Academy. He was active in church ministries as head usher for the 4:30 Mass and assisted with the St. Mary Healthcare Center Mass and the monthly masses at Maison Jardin. As a part of the AARP, he was a long-time member of the Mardi Gras and election committees. He was a member of the Our Lady Star of the Sea Confraternity and a former member of the Morgan City Jaycees. As co-chairman, he worked on “Christmas by Candlelight” staging on Bernice Street for over 20 years. His former employers include National Food Store, Cy’s MC Appliance, Seahorse, Inc., Point Marine, Hornbeck Offshore Services, and Tidewater Marine. He retired in 1996.

Larry married Nedra Gautier on May 22, 1966. They celebrated their 56th anniversary in 2022. They enjoyed traveling with their children, and in their later years, they took their four grandchildren and great-grandchildren and ventured to theme parks, zoos, aquariums, and other places of interest. Their favorite place to visit was Branson, Missouri, where they enjoyed seeing many entertaining shows. Larry liked working on his computer and looked forward to receiving daily emails from his friends.
