He was preceded in death by Lawrence H. Ducote, Sr., Narcille Lemoine Ducote Johnson, and Randy Johnson.

He was born and raised in Cottonport, Louisiana. He cherished his Cottonport roots and loved his many cousins. Upon graduating from Cottonport High, he enlisted in the army and received his basic training at Fort Polk, Louisiana. He was stationed in Germany for the remainder of his military service and was awarded the National Defense Medal and the M-16 Sharp Shooter Medal. He was honorable discharged as Private First Class. Upon returning to civilian life, he became a member of Baton Rouge Local 198 Pipefitters and Welders Union where he was employed until his retirement. Larry was an avid outdoorsman and he and Cathy enjoyed fishing for speckled trout at their camp in Grand Isle. He adored his two terrier puppies, Rosie and Nonie, and loved spending time with them. Another favorite pastime of his was attending New Orleans Saints games. He was extremely generous to everyone and gave bicycles to needy children each Christmas. He was a friend to many and will be dearly missed.
