Mongo (M.P.) Edmondson, Jr. passed away at the age of 89 on June 30, 2020. He is the son of the late Leota and Mongo Edmondson Sr. and is predeceased by his loving wife of 65 years Virginia Lee Brown Edmondson. He is survived by a sister, Jonel Henderson. His legacy includes his children, Stuart Edmondson (Robin), Shannon Edmondson and Stacy Edmondson, along with 6 grandchildren: Ashley Zabalaoui, Courtney Walia, Stuart Edmondson, Samantha Taylor, Jacob Edmondson and Mallory Ward, as well as 6 great-grandchildren and countless others who loved and cherished him. Mongo, also known as M.P. served in the US Army prior to a lifetime career as a Petroleum Landman and was an avid tennis player and sportsman, a love he passed to his sons. He never fully retired from business, keeping that part of himself alive even as Parkinson's robbed him of the joys of hunting and fishing. A Memorial Service will be held July 10, 2020 at Leitz-Eagan Funeral Home, 4747 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, Louisiana at 1:00 p.m., with Visitation with the family from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., followed by a graveside service at the Wright Family Cemetery in Buna, Texas on Saturday, July 11, 2020 at 12:30 p.m. In light of the recent ruling from Jefferson Parish, masks are required. Please wear your personal mask during the visitation and service to protect each other. We will also need to rotate visitors in the parlor for visitation to restrict numbers to comply with Covid ordinances. As difficult as this makes the service, the family is grateful for the opportunity to memorialize their father and thank you for your understanding.

"Mongo Pongo" as I called him was a very kind, hardworking, patient gentleman. He hired me at Mosbacher back in early '80s. So many fun filled memories. Looked forward to fishing stories, Virginia's dances and family meals. I pray the beautiful memories you've made will fill your heart with joy and peace. God bless.
