Andrew ""Andy"" G. Daigle, a business manager with Bryan Subaru, passed away from a sudden heart attack on Monday, January 4, 2021 at the age of 64. He was a 1974 graduate of Jesuit High School and a 1978 graduate of the University of New Orleans. Beloved husband of Donna Costanza Daigle for 42 years. Selfless and devoted father of Shannon D. Taranto (Keith), Jenna D. Scairono (Anthony) and Ashley D. Griffin (Adam). Loving Gramps to Gianna and Anthony Scairono and Owen and Aiden Griffin. Brother of Michael T. Daigle. Son of the late June T. Daigle and Clifford P. Daigle and favorite son-in-law of the late Joseph and Rosalie Costanza. Andy was a wonderful man who cherished his family almost as much as we cherished him. He was a born optimist and an extremely hard worker always willing to help anyone. As a man of great faith, he met life's challenges with strength. Determination and prayer. His motto was ""every morning when I wake up, I thank God for another day, because being given one more day sure beats the alternative."" In 2013, Andy began to wage a courageous battle with renal cancer. Several operations, a drug trial and many scans later, he seemed to have won that battle. Many thanks to Dr. Scott Delacroix and his staff for their kindness and care. Andy made the most of these last seven years forging bonds with his four sweet grandchildren as well as his four shameless granddogs. With pockets full of animal crackers, he won all of their hearts. And of course, they all had his heart from the start. Besides his children and grandchildren, one surprise that touched Andy deeply was receiving the Order of St. Louis IX Medallion in 2015 for his dedication to Saint Joachim. He loved being a parishioner of The Little Church in the Woods and took on any role he could to assist Fr. Amal, even as a 64 year old altar server. How he loved ringing those bells! If an angel gets his wings every time a bell is wrung, then all the angels must have them now. We, who truly knew and loved our Andy, know that Heaven received an angel from earth on last Monday afternoon. Rest in heavenly peace, Gramps. Family and Friends are invited to attend a visitation at 8 AM on Saturday, January 09, 2021 at Westside Leitz-Eagan Funeral Home located 5101 Westbank Expressway in Marrero, followed by a Mass in our chapel beginning at 11 AM with Fr.

Dear Donna & family,
Steve and I wish we could be there in person to say our goodbyes to Andy and give each of y'all a hug, but rest assured you are in our prayers. We are so sad for your family and share in your heartache. Andy loved his family and it showed through each of y'all. He was always "behind the scenes" helping out or just being supportive. He always seemed to have a smile on his face and loved to laugh at our relatives jokes and antics. He always made us feel welcome. I will always remember the moment in Texas for Katie's wedding when he walked up to me and I didn't readily recognize him because of his white hair! He rocked that hair color and wore it proudly! He had a zest for life and he will be dearly missed! With all our love, Nancy & Steve Rooney
