“Lou”

November 2, 1930 – January 19, 2016

Louis P. LeBourdais, age 85, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 19, 2016.

Born in Lowell, MA on November 2, 1930, Lou was a son of the late Louis A. and Emma Marie (Jubinville) LeBourdais. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Lou made his career as a block operator with the Pennsylvania and Penn Central Railroads and Amtrak, retiring after 36 years.

Strong in his faith, he was a longtime member of the Message of Hope Assembly of God in Bear. He was an active member of Lt. J. Allison O’Daniel VFW Post #475 in Newark. In his leisure time, Lou enjoyed reading books of all kinds. He was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather and will be very dearly missed.

Lou is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years, Hazel I. (Morgan) LeBourdais; daughters, Shirley Strecker of Newark, DE and Sandra Shoun (Gordon) of Ellendale, DE; 6 grandchildren; and 7 great grandchildren.

A funeral service will be held at 11 am on Thursday morning, January 28, 2016, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 121 West Park Place, Newark, DE, where a visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 11 am.

    Hazel, Shirley & Sandy,

    The greatest comfort we can have when our loved one passes on, is to know that we will see them again. I am thankful that I had the opportunity and priviledge to lead Lou to the Lord, so we can be certain where he is now. And because of his confession of faith we know that those who have excepted Christ will see Him again. So for a believer this is no the end, but a beautiful beginning for Lou. My prayers and our church family’s prayers are with all of you. May God’s comfort and grace see you through the service tomorrow and the days and weeks ahead. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to be blessing

    Love, Pastor Dawn
