Ledoux, Clarence Eugene  
Clarence Eugene Ledoux passed away on the 20th day of January 2015. Clarence is survived by his dedicated wife of 56 years, Glenna Joyce and nine children: Kirk Ledoux and wife Melanie; Yvette Chandler and husband George Thomas; Angela Hull and husband George; Christine Starnes and husband John; Marcus Ledoux and wife Jennifer; Connie Book; Monique Lundgren and husband Dale; Stephen Ledoux and wife Jennifer; Paul Ledoux and wife Kate. Clarence is also survived by 29 grandchildren and one great grandchild. He is preceded in death by his parents, Ewell and Isabelle Ledoux and brother Mike Ledoux. Clarence always said it was God's intervention when a nun told him he had to change schools and attend Grand Prairie High School where he would meet his future wife. From 1954 to1958 he served in the United States Air Force and was stationed in Misawa, Japan as a radio technician. Upon returning he married Glenna Fontenot and attended college at the University of Southwestern Louisiana. After earning a degree in Secondary Education with a minor in Mathematics, he taught high school math and science for several years in Opelousas, Louisiana, and he and Glenna would have nine children. In 1970 he applied and was awarded a fellowship to earn his doctoral degree in Vocational Education at Oregon State University. After earning his doctorate in 1973, he returned to Louisiana to provide service in the Louisiana Department of Education as a Supervisor in vocational education and then was promoted to Section Chief and later Assistant State Superintendent in the division of accountability. In 1988, Dr. Ledoux was asked to lead the state's effort to ensure grade level performance. He would go on to create a statewide testing program that is credited with moving Louisiana's public school system forward at a critical juncture in our history. In 1989 he retired, but continued to teach and study until his passing. Clarence Ledoux believed in education and its ability to transform lives and in turn our world. He was a man of deep faith, integrity and sacrifice. He is loved deeply and will be remembered by his family through their own commitment to live their lives by his example.
