"I have fought a good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept my faith." 2 Timothy 4:7.
Now at rest with our Lord, Gary Paul Landry, age 72, a native and resident of Belle Rose, passed away on April, 16, 2017, at his residence in Belle Rose, La. He was a United States Air Force Veteran and retired from Dow Chemical in Plaquemine after 33 years of service as an electrician.
Gary was a man who loved his family dearly and taught his children and grandchildren to be respectful of and thankful for all God's gifts. He was generous with his time and talents spending many hours cooking Shrimp and Crab Stew for local church festivals and monthly for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. In addition to his generous nature, Gary will be remembered for his love of fishing and his appreciation for the outdoors, playing cards and bowling.

He is survived by his wife of 21 years Gail Chamberlain Landry, his brother Charles (Brenda) Landry, and his sisters Charlotte (Donald) Blanchard, Barbara (Alvin) Gros, and Eleanor "Pug" (Philip) Babin.

He is survived by thirteen grandchildren, Tucker, Claire, and Camille Landry; Lauren, Allen, and Jake Landry; Paul Landry; Blake and Garret Jones, Josh and Charles (Trey) Thibodaux, Kate and Karlie Knight; and two great grandkids.
The family would like to thank Dr. Hanson and staff and St Joseph Hospice for their love and care.
