Donald Troxclair

September 21, 1973 — February 19, 2022

Donald “Donnie” Joseph Troxclair, Jr., age 48, a native of Baton Rouge, and resident of Gonzales, Louisiana, passed away on Saturday, February 19, 2022, after a brief illness.

Donnie did electrical and instrumentation work in his early years, until he became disabled. He was the blessed recipient of a kidney and pancreas transplant on Father’s Day of 2009 that extended his joy for life.  Donnie shared the story of his second chance at life and the message of organ donation with high school students on behalf of the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency. Donnie also served as a board member for St. Joseph’s Plantation, contributing to its restoration, and carrying on the tradition of his father. Donnie was known for his sense of humor, his resilience, and above all, his calling to be a father.

Donnie is survived by his beautiful daughter, Lauren Christine Troxclair and her fiancé Chase Collier; sisters Aimee Hansen (William) and Carol Decoteau (Stephen); and his favorite niece, Jenay Christine Hansen.  He is also survived by family and numerous life-long friends who have loved him for years, and his soulful and faithful companion, Daisy Pup.

Donnie was preceded in death by his Father, Donald Troxclair, Sr., Mother, Iris Delaune Troxclair, his paternal grandparents Nicholas and Virginia Troxclair, and maternal grandparents Woodrow and Lois Delaune, and beloved aunts and uncles.

Visitation will be held at Resthaven Funeral Home on Friday, February 25, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.  Visitation for family will continue at Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church on Saturday, February 26, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. until Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 a.m. Burial will follow at Resthaven Gardens of Memory.
