It is with great honor that we share with you that a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather, brother and friend, Clive J. Landry, went home to be with his Savior on October 20, 2021. Clive was born on September 10, 1938, to Felix and Nellie Bourg Landry of Belle Rose. He was a resident of White Castle, Louisiana, and was a devoted husband and loving father, taking care of his family was of utmost importance to him. He was a member of Our Lady of Prompt Succor Church in White Castle, where he served as a Eucharistic Minister. He also treasured his time during his men's retreats at Manresa. Known as 'Hoppie' by many in the community, Clive loved to cook jambalaya and white beans for school fairs and benefits. He was a retired sugar cane farmer and an avid gardener. After a long day's work at Georgia Gulf, you could find him on the lawn mower or in one of his many gardens. He and his wife loved to travel, host weekly prayer meetings in their home, and going to their camp in Bayou Corne. After retirement, Hoppie started his own "Breakfast Club" where biscuits and coffee were readily available every weekday morning. Clive was an avid sports fan, especially LSU and Yankees baseball. Clive is preceded in death by his parents, his wife Marian L. Landry; sisters Dorothy 'Dot' Landry and Anna Belle Chedotal; brothers Cleve Landry (twin), Steve Landry and Willie Landry.
