Harold Louis Lusignan

Harold Louis Lusignan passed away on Thursday, November 26, 2020, at the age of 96. He was born June 21, 1924, in Algiers, LA, to Louis Lusignan and Anaise Hebert. A proud World War II Army veteran, Harold served his country in France and Germany as part of the 648th Tank Destroyer Battalion. Harold retired in 1986 from Hebbler Construction after years of dedicated service. The loss of their home to Hurricane Katrina initiated a move across the lake to Tickfaw, LA. He was preceded in death by his parents; his beloved wife of 70 years, Gloria Beauvais Lusignan; his brothers Floyd, Dave and Gale Lusignan; his sisters Lois Clinton and Lorraine Kusman. He is survived by his loving daughter Jocelyn Bagert (V Vernile “Michael”); grandson William Michael Bagert; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Harold cherished his visits with William Kuhn; and his wife’s family, Ann and Frank Cangelosi, their daughter Christine Redmon (Andy). The family would especially like to thank the Village at St. Bernard for the compassionate care they provided to Harold in his time with them. Harold and Gloria were well known for gardening and the large collection of bromeliad plants at their New Orleans home – and now we find comfort in knowing that they are tending to God’s garden together. The love they gave and showed will be cherished for years to come. Family and friends attended a visitation and Funeral Mas at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd., New Orleans, on Friday, December 4, 2020.
