Adam was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He loved everyone he met, always helped anyone in need and was the best handyman there was. Adam could fix just about anything. He loved to entertain the family at his home with his huge yard. Everyone looked forward to spending Christmas and Easter at his place.
His true love was his sweet wife, JoAnn, and after she passed away two years ago, he was never the same. He loved and missed her so much.
Adam was a sugarcane farmer for over 40 years. When he retired, he kept his yard immaculate and grew the best garden. He would share all his pickings with family and the whole neighborhood. His other past time was going to the casino, but he always would say it wasn't the same going without his wife. He will be missed by everyone, but reunited again with the love of his life. We know she will be waiting with open arms.
He is survived by his daughters, Patty Boggs (Patrick) and Tammy Theriot (Jake); grandchildren, Adam Boggs (Chloe), Hannah Faucheaux (Stuart), Alyssa Kidder (Blake) and Grant Bienvenu (Noelle); great-grandchildren, Lily Ann Faucheaux and Benny Daniel Boggs; brother, Bernard Laviolette, Sr. (Melba); sisters, Mildred Geoffrey and Ruby Dore (Wayne); brothers-in-law, Elmo Landry, Jr. and Cecil Landry (Bobette); and sister-in-law, Marlene Roy (James).
He is preceded in death by his wife, JoAnn Landry Laviolette; son-in-law, Jason Bienvenu; granddaughter, Kayla Rae Boggs; parents, Mr. and Mrs. Adam Laviolette, Sr.; parents-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Elmo Landry, Sr.; brother, Gilbert Laviolette; and sisters, Gertrude Laviolette, Olivia Broussard, Lydia Gary and Bernice Gary.
Pallbearers will be Patrick Boggs, Adam Boggs, Jake Theriot, Grant Bienvenu, Stuart Faucheaux and Blake Kidder.
The family wishes to thank the entire staff of Traditions Hospice. They gave the absolute best care to our dad and provided the best support and guidance to our family. Also, a special thanks to his neighbor and great friend, Carrol Lasseigne, and his caring brother-in-law, EJ Landry, for visiting with him weekly and keeping him company after his wife passed away.
