Newton D. Lormand, Sr.

August 28, 1924 — May 5, 2023


Newton Denis Lormand, Sr. (Paw Peep) was surrounded by his loving family when he peacefully left this Earth to meet his maker Jesus Christ on Friday, May 5, 2023. 

“Newt” is originally from Morse, LA where he spent the beginning of his 98 years.  He also was a resident of Crowley and Baton Rouge for most of his adult life.  He was married in 1944 to the love of his life “Neen”.  They had two children.  He was a loving and kind husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.  He was a very smart man with a dry sense of humor that his family adored.  He loved being around his grandbabies and great grandbabies (almost as much as he loved chocolate!).

Right after graduation, he enlisted in the United States Navy.  He proudly served in World War II, where he spent most of his days aboard the USS Intrepid on artillery detail.  He was honorably discharged due to injuries sustained during and enemy torpedo attack on November 24, 1944.  Once he returned home, he worked hard for many years as part of the Boilermakers Union.  He was so proud to have been recently honored by Hospice of Baton Rouge for his service in the Navy.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 75 years, Leatrice Sensat Lormand; his son, Newton Denis Lormand, Jr.; his parents, Rufus and Beulah Mauboules Lormand; and two brothers, Rufus, Jr. and Merlyn.

He will be deeply missed by his devoted daughter and caretaker Ann (Melvyn) Baker; brother, James Lormand; grandchildren, Garret (Tiffany) Sing, Chase Baldwin, and Nathan (Haleigh) Baldwin; great-grandchildren, Hailey, Rylan, Grant, Hudson, and Keller; great-great-granddaughter, Elliot; and many beloved relatives and friends. 

Visitation will be held at St. George Catholic Church, where he was a parishioner for many years, on Saturday, May 13, 2023 from 9:30 a.m. until Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 a.m.  Entombment will follow at St. George Catholic Cemetery. 

Pallbearers will be Garrett Sing, Jebby Baldwin, Nathan and Chase Baldwin, Melvyn Baker, and Brock Anselmo.

The family is forever grateful for the love and support of the team from Hospice of Baton Rouge, Pam Martin, and Peggy Altazin, whom all played a part in making his last days on Earth as comfortable as possible.
