Leonard LaSalle

September 19, 1939 - November 22, 2022

Leonard LaSalle, 83, of Beaumont, died Tuesday, November 22, 2022. He was born on September 19, 1939, in Beaumont, to Odette Louviere and Leon LaSalle.

Leonard was a graduate of  South Park High School, and then went into the United States Marine Corps. While serving as a Marine, he played taps for the military funerals in Southeast Texas. Leonard retired from Lucent Technologies after 38 years. His hobbies included music, dancing, motorcycles, skydiving, fishing, and spending time with his grandkids. Leonard was a founding member of St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church, where he and his wife served as Eucharistic ministers for many years. His tenacity and zest for life are among the many things he will be remembered for. Leonard loved Tiki Island, fishing with Jean, and Saturday night Mass followed by The Original Mexican Café in Galveston. He walked every single day, rain or shine, even while battling cancer. Leonard’s signature wave was a big thumbs up. His porch was a gathering spot for neighbors, and they all looked forward to wine time and sharing the events of the day.

Survivors include his son, Coy Lynn LaSalle; grandchildren, Meghan Cobb; Marshall Cobb; Amanda Cobb Hart and her husband, Jonathan; Juliette LaSalle; Gabrielle LaSalle; Caden LaSalle; Brock LaSalle; and Austin Wells; great-grandchildren, Jax LaSalle, and Josey LaSalle; sisters, Sanna Cammarata and Charolette Westfall and her husband, Fred; and numerous other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Ada Jean McGhee LaSalle; and son, Jimmy Cobb.

Memorial contributions for Mr. LaSalle may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St Jude Pl, Memphis, Tennessee 38105.

    We are so sorry for your family’s loss. Leonard and Jean were our friends for many years and they are both missed terribly. We spent many good times on trips, listening to music (Leonard”s favorite thing), eating crawfish, fishing and evenings on the porch with them at Tiki. He was one of a kind and we know he is in heaven and happy to be back with Jean.

    Leonard was the greatest! He was such a joy to be around whether it was cocktail time or trying to keep up with him on a walk down Tiki Drive. While we will miss him, I know he missed Jean more and is now dancing with her in heaven.
