Larry Allan Poche, 74, passed away on Saturday, July 9, 2022.
Larry was an airman first class in the United States Air Force, was the first person in his family to graduate from college (USL), taught industrial arts at Cecilia High School, designed safety valves for the Oil & Gas Industry, and was a training specialist at several local oil companies. Larry loved telling jokes, growing fruit trees, learning different languages for his over-seas trips, making custom music CDs for anyone and everyone, and eating good food. He often liked taking out-of-town visitors to Lake Martin to see the alligators and other local flora/fauna. Larry was expert at bird identification; he could tell exactly which bird was seen based simply on a description and location.
He is survived by his step-daughter, Terri Fontenot (Tony); daughters, Teddi Willis (Mark) and Tonni Maw (Robert); grandchildren, Russ Morgan (Alexandra), Dominique Morgan, Brody Schneider (Claire), Bowen Schneider, Samantha Maw, and Robbie Maw; brothers, Floyd Poche and Sidney Poche; and sisters, Virdy Poche, Alene Poche and Martha Phares.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 49 years, Luanna Leger Poche; parents, Lug Joseph Poche and Eleanor Chapman Poche; step-son, Russ Landry; and brothers, Nolan Poche and Felton "Poncho" Poche.
