Obituary

Alton J. "Pete" Landry, Jr. passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Monday, October 21, 2019. He is survived by his loving wife, Rosemary Acosta Landry, of 55 years; his children, Dwayne (Ann) Landry, Troy (Jeanne) Landry, Sean (Kristyn) Landry and Nicole Landry (Mark Pollman II); Grandchildren, Alyssa (Sam) Folkins and Meghan, Ashlynn, Amanda, Christian, Camren and Ethan Landry; and his brothers and sister, Barbara (the late Wayne) Knotts, Gary (Rita) Landry and Kenneth (Ann) Landry. He was preceded in death by his parents, Alton J. Landry, Sr. and Glenna Marie Landry; brother-in-law, Wayne Knotts; and his beloved cat, Minneaux. Pete was a wonderful husband, father and proud grandfather. Pete's legacy to his children and grandchildren was to always be yourself in whatever they pursue, something he lived and modeled for them. He loved to fish and cheer for his favorite teams, LSU and the Saints. He was lucky enough to fulfill one of his greatest dreams and see LSU baseball play in Omaha and win the College World Series. He will be greatly missed, leaving a legacy of family and love. Geaux Tigers!!
