Howard A. ("Woody") Lege, Jr.

November 9, 1958 — February 26, 2024

Baton Rouge

Howard Anthony (“Woody”) Lege, Jr., passed away on Monday, February 26, 2024, at the age of 65. He was born on November 9, 1958, in New Orleans, Louisiana to Howard Anthony Lege, Sr. and Barbara Goodwin Lege. He lived most of his life in New Orleans, moving to Baton Rouge five years ago. He worked as an electrician and was skilled in all trades including woodworking – Woody could fix or build anything!

Woody was a devoted son and was dedicated to his mom. He never met a stranger, loved to cook and listen to all types of music, sharing his eclectic taste in music with his nieces and nephews. He was always the “cool” uncle. He also will be remembered as a prankster who loved to make people laugh.   

Woody is survived by his mother, Barbara Goodwin Lege; his sisters, Cindy Dolan and Dawn Pramik; his nephews and nieces, Ashley and Greg McCauley, Ryan Pramik, Kelsey and James Hurst, and Mason Dolan; and his great-niece, Aubrey and great-nephews, William, Declan and Louis.

He is preceded by his father, Howard Anthony Lege, Sr.; his nephew, Ethan Dolan; and his brother-in-law, Bill Pramik.
