Allie Pierre Landry III, 75, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, died Monday, May 23, 2022, peacefully in his sleep. Allie was born April 3, 1947, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to A.P. Landry, Jr. and Louise Callendar Landry. He spent his childhood in Baton Rouge, Louisiana graduating from Catholic High School and then earning his degree in journalism from Louisiana State University. Allie served in the United States Army after being drafted at the height of the Vietnam War. As luck would have it, he was one of five men who were sent to Germany to serve during the conflict where he was charged with instructing the officers on the driving laws of Europe. Allie retired from The Advocate in 2011 after serving the newspaper as a Classified Outside Sales Representative for over 43 years. During his tenure with The Advocate, Allie developed numerous lifelong friendships. Allie’s vibrant smile, positive outlook on life and love of all people made it easy for him to be named the “life of the party”. Allie never met a stranger and never passed judgement on anyone; he was everyone’s friend. Allie loved spending time on the water boating, fishing, and relaxing in the bars along the Tickfaw River. He had a love of all “fine” cars, “fabulous” clothes, and “spectacular” places. He had a passion for entertaining serving the “finest” cuisine cooked by him and his wife which was always accompanied with the “best” wine. The thing he enjoyed most in life was traveling with his wife of over 53 years, Jo Ann; together they ventured through Europe and enjoyed every shore of the United States. Allie loved “his girls” with everything he had, and we will forever miss his adventurous spirit. He is survived by his three daughters, Nicole Graham (Ronnie), Sara Landry (Chad), and Katherine Bonfiglio (Anthony); grandchildren, Adrienne Stokes (Michael), Blaine Stokes, Luca Bonfiglio, and Mae Rose Bonfiglio; great-grandchild Graham Brown; brothers-in-law, Kenny Graffeo (Anne) and Mark Graffeo (Julie); sisters-in-law Anna Marchiafava, Jan Waddell (Steve), and Sharon Graffeo Lowrey (Brandon); two step-grandsons, Ryan Graham and Danny Stokes as well as a host of loving step-grandchildren, relatives and friends. Preceded in death by the “love of his life”, Jo Ann Graffeo Landry; his parents, A. P., and Louise Landry; maternal grandmother, Effie Gasquet; paternal grandparents, Allie P., and Alice Landry; grandson, Conner Childress; in-laws, Joe, and Gladys Graffeo; and brothers-in-law, Glenn Graffeo and Bo Marchiafava as well as numerous aunts and uncles. Visitation will be held Saturday, June 4th at 8:30 AM with a memorial service starting at 11:00 AM at Resthaven Funeral Home, 11817 Jefferson Highway, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70816.
