LeClere, David Anthony  
David Anthony LeClere was born September 5, 1954 in New Orleans to parents Paul and Rosalie LeClere. A brilliant and self-driven man, he graduated from De La Salle High School in 1972 and began a new life in Baton Rouge, LA. He attended Louisiana State University and received degrees in English and History in 1976. He graduated from the Paul M. Herbert School of Law at LSU with his J.D. in 1979. Shortly after graduation, he began practicing law and became a partner at three law firms before founding LeClere Law Firm, APLC in 1991 and then Alliance Title, LLC, today known as Preferred Alliance, LLC. Additionally, David was a member of the Louisiana State Bar Association, The Baton Rouge Bar Association, National Association of Independent Title Agents (Sitting President and Founding Board Member), Louisiana Association of Independent Title Attorneys (Founding Board Member), Baton Rouge Independent Title Attorney (Past President), Louisiana Land Title Association (Legislative Committee), American Land Title Association, and other professional organizations. He was an active member of Bocage Racquet Club where he enjoyed spending time with his many friends. David raised four young men, David A. LeClere II, Jacob Gunter, Michael "Josh" LeClere, and Benjamin LeClere, and taught them to love the Lord, love each other, love the Saints and Tigers, and to always put family first. They were more than father and sons. They were best friends, and there was nothing they didn't enjoy doing together. He impacted the lives of countless others and is notably grieved by fiancee Lisa Glover and her daughter, Ella; sons David A. LeClere II, Josh LeClere, Ben LeClere, and Jacob Gunter; mother Rosalie LeClere; sisters Pam Waldron and husband Dennis, Gerri St. Germain and husband David, and Susie Wilty. He battled kidney cancer bravely for six years and lost his life on Wednesday, July 29, 2015; cancer never had to work so hard. David was a loyal hero, father and friend. His strength and dedication to all served as a model that we all should strive to follow. He will be deeply missed. Visitation will be held on Sunday, August 2 at Rabenhorst Funeral Home at 825 Government Street in Baton Rouge between 5 PM and 8 PM.
