Glenn R. Ducote Jr.

GLENN R. "CHIP" DUCOTE JR. died peacefully in his sleep early Christmas morning, December 25, 2012, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 47 and a native and resident of Baton Rouge. Chip was a graduate of Lee High School, attended LSU and successfully completed the air-conditioning and refrigeration program at Frazier Vo-Tech. In addition to being a gourmet cook and a go-to handyman who could fix anything, he was also a very thoughtful and caring person who was always willing to help anyone day or night. Chip found his niche in the past few years working at a Harmony Center group home, and he truly loved the residents in his care. He enjoyed politics, cooking and watching LSU and Saints games and going to Jimmy Buffett concerts with his best friend, Paul Liuzzo. Chip is survived by his parents, Jackie and Glenn Ducote, Sr. of Baton Rouge; his niece, Makenzie Ducote of Pineville; and his beloved cats. He was preceded in death by his brother, Andrew Brooks "Drew" Ducote; his maternal grandparents, Edward Hoffpauir and Margie Cormier; and his paternal grandparents, Ewell L. Ducote and Elaine Gautreaux. At his request, no funeral service will be held.
