Port Barre-A Mass of Christian Burial will be held for David LeJeune on Monday, February 12, 2024, at 11:00 AM in the Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Port Barre. Fr. Clint Trahan will celebrate the mass. Rite of Committal will follow in the Sacred Heart Cemetery. 

David Sam LeJeune, a committed public servant and dedicated member of his community, passed away peacefully on February 8, 2024, in Opelousas, Louisiana. He was born on April 8, 1952, in Lafayette, Louisiana.

David's career was defined by his unwavering commitment to serving and protecting others. David transitioned into law enforcement, after an honorable term in the United States Army, serving as a Military Policeman during peacetime. He dedicated a total of 38 years to this noble profession. For 26 years, he worked tirelessly with the Opelousas Police Department, ensuring the safety and well-being of the community he held dear. Following retirement from the Opelousas Police Department, David continued his service by joining the St. Landry Sheriff Department for another 12 years until his eventual retirement. David had a profound love for his country and served it honorably during his time in the military. His dedication extended further as he became an active member of the Port Barre American Legion Post 334. Through his involvement with this esteemed organization, David continued to serve his fellow veterans and contribute to causes that advocated for their well-being. 

Throughout his life, David was a devoted family man. His greatest joy came from spending time with his two sons, daughter-in-laws, and his grandchildren while creating lasting memories with his loved ones. He cherished every moment shared with his family and was always ready to lend a helping hand or offer words of wisdom. David had a passion for football and was an enthusiastic fan of both the New Orleans Saints and the LSU Tigers. David will be remembered as a devoted husband, loving father, cherished friend, and respected colleague.

Survivors include his sons, Jeremy LeJeune and wife Lacie of Opelousas, Brandon LeJeune and wife Lacy of Port Barre; his sisters, Ruby Barrow of Carencro, Diane Moore of Covington, Emmaline Mequet and husband Doug of Henderson; his 8 grandchildren, Kamron and wife Torie, Braylon, Greyson, Aidan, Nadia, Evan, Della, and Philip LeJeune; and 1 great-grandchild, Aubrey LeJeune, plus one on the way.

David was preceded in death by his wife, Karen Soileau LeJeune; his parents, Eveins and Mary LeJeune; his brothers, Waylon LeJeune and Ray LeJeune; and his sister, Rita LeJeune.
