Lester was born on October 22, 1946, in Lafayette. Lester was an exceptional individual who poured his heart and soul into his craft. As a construction worker for fifty years, he left an indelible mark on the world through the projects he helped build.

Beyond his work life, Lester was a man of many hobbies and interests that brought immense joy into his existence. He had an intrinsic fondness for nature and spent countless hours nurturing his yard with love and care.

Lester had a penchant for the excitement of horse racing. The thrill of watching racehorses gallop across the track brought him joy as he studied their form with enthusiasm. His eyes would light up whenever he spoke about his experiences at the racetrack, sharing stories of thrilling races and unforgettable wins.

Above all else, Lester cherished spending time with his beloved family. Family bonds meant everything to him, and he found peace in their presence. Being around his parents brought back cherished memories from his childhood-memories of love, support, and guided wisdom that shaped him into the incredible person that he became.

Lester's children and grandchildren held a special place in his heart. He treasured every moment spent with them as they formed lasting connections filled with laughter, love, and shared experiences. Whether cheering alongside them at sports events or gathering around the television to root for his beloved Saints, it was these moments that Lester held closest to his heart-a reminder of the abundant love that surrounded him.

He is survived by his wife, Mary D. Landry; sons, Derrick Landry Brown and Terry Anthony Landry; daughters, Tina Marie Landry, Karica Ann Landry, Shamantha Faye Landry and Tara Jonne' Landry; sisters, Laura Pitte(Leo), Shirley Guidry, Kathy Johnson(Joe), Norma Dural(John), JoeAnn Landry Stewart(Leo), Juanita Carter and Nancy Landry; grandchildren, Brandon M.
