Long-time French Quarter resident Lee “Bunny” Brasseaux passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 17. He was 58.
He was born January 1, 1961, to Roy and Marjorie (Duhon) Brasseaux. He was a native of Abbeville but resided for over 30 years in his beloved adopted city of New Orleans.
Preceded in death by his parents, he is survived by a brother, Roy “Joey” Brasseaux and wife Eva (Prine) of Carville, LA; a sister, Mary Brasseaux Safford and husband Jim of Gross Tete, LA; nieces and nephews, JC Safford, Ali Safford and fiancé Wyatt LeJeune, Jimmy Brasseaux and wife Sarah, Kathryn Brasseaux Miller; seven great-nieces and nephews; and an abundance of friends.
Lee was a kind and generous soul with a boundless sense of humor, always giving of his time and labor whenever he saw a need. He was loved by many who shared his caring attitude, his humor, and his desire to make his community better any way that he could.
A memorial service was held on Saturday, June 29, at Our Lady of Guadalupe / The Shrine of St. Jude. A Second-Line followed the service and concluded with a celebration of life gathering at the Golden Lantern bar.
The family would like to thank all of Bunny’s friends for their love and support at this time.
