Azarie Felix Meaux Sr.

June 2, 1943 ~ November 4, 2023

Azarie Felix Meaux, Sr., 80, passed away on November 4, 2023 surrounded by his family. He was born on June 2, 1943, in Lake Charles, Louisiana, to Abney Meaux and Bessie Mae Peloquin Meaux Bacon.
Azarie was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He thoroughly enjoyed over 30 years of cross-country truck driving and serving at The Salvation Army. He loved spending time in his garden, telling stories, listening and singing along to French-Cajun and Bluegrass music, and was a life-long LSU Tigers fan. Azarie never met a stranger, was sure to light up a room with his infectious laugh and ensure that everyone felt included and loved.
Those left to cherish his memory are, his wife, Janice Cupp Meaux; his three sons, thirteen grandchildren, and five great grand children: Azarie Meaux Jr. (wife Susan, and children Brandon and Lindsey), William Meaux (wife Janet, and children Bradley, Tyler, Jon, Gracie, Daniel, Emma and Tate), Nathaniel Meaux (wife Donna, and children Jessica and Melanie); three stepchildren, Tammy Brown (husband Danny, and children Allyson and Zachary), Chuck Baker and Robert Baker.
Azarie was preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife of more than 30 years, Mary Emma Louise Meaux, Marilyn Meaux (William’s wife) and Andrew Meaux (Melanie’s son).

Memories Timeline


  1. Mr. Meaux was a wonderful man I am grateful to have known him and the sheriff’s office will miss him dearly…. He would always come in with a smile and loved his job…. I pray that the family gets healing, and that Mr. Meaux is up in Heaven with no more pain and just laughing and having conversation with everyone up there.

  2. Candle 1So glad my sister Linda and I got to visit with DD and Janice a few weeks ago while he was still in the hospital. His spirit came alive and we reminisced over times of yrs ago. He will surely be missed. RIP my dear cousin. Gone but never forgotten.
    Forever young and completely healed!
    Love always and forever Sandy
