2 Timothy 4:7&8 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Jay passed away on January 13, 2020 at his home in Lakeland, La. at the age of 76. Jay was a cherished husband, beloved father and grandfather. He was an avid LSU fan. You could find him in his garden always planting, harvesting and toiling in the soil (a love he shared with his father, son and grandchildren). Watching his grandkids in their favorite hobbies and sports always put a smile on his face. You never found him without a cup of coffee and crossword puzzle in his hands. He will be missed but carried in the hearts of those who loved him. He was a retired Plant Operator from Formosa Plastics in Baton Rouge and a U.S. Army veteran SP4 having served in the 500th Engineering Bridge Company.
