Clenis Lasseigne

September 23, 1938 — January 20, 2023

St. Martinville

Catahoula - A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at St. Rita Catholic Church in Catahoula for Clenis Lasseigne, 84, who passed away on Friday, January 20, 2023 at his residence. 

A visitation will take place at Dion Hall on Wednesday from 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm and will continue on Thursday from 8:00 am until 10:30 am.

A rosary will be prayed at 7:00 pm on Wednesday evening by Deacon Russell Hayes.

Father Bill Melancon will officiate at the Funeral Mass. Interment will follow at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Cemetery in Coteau. 

Clenis worked in the oilfield for over 30 years, until his retirement in 2004. He enjoyed watching football and western movies. Clenis loved spending time with his family; his grandchildren were the light of his life and brought him much joy. On Sundays, you could find him swinging outside and listening to French music. Clenis was truly a "one-of-a-kind" man, who was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and brother, that will be greatly missed. 

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Barbara Chataignier Lasseigne; daughters, Wendy Barras (Terry) and Lori Miller; son, Lonnie Lasseigne (Fran); brother, Rouly Lasseigne (Laura); grandchildren, Tyson Barras, Alana Miller, Kailin Lasseigne (Dorsey "DJ"), Savana Capritto (Silas) and Triston Barras; and great-grandchildren, Karson and Ambri Barras and Eli Capritto. 

He is preceded in death by his granddaughters, Kristen Barras and Jena Lasseigne; son-in-law, John "J.C." Miller; parents, Claybert Lasseigne and Anastasia Girouard Lasseigne; and numerous siblings. 

Pallbearers will be Lonnie Lasseigne, Terry Barras, Silas Capritto, DJ Barras, Percy "P.L." Granger, Todd Granger, Curtis Chataignier, and Todd Chataignier.

Pellerin Funeral Home (337-332-2111) is in charge of arrangements.
