April 3, 1980 ~ October 24, 2023

Leon Keith Hebert was born April 3, 1980 to Leon Elmus and Roxanne. He was born in Lake Charles but moved to Vinton his freshman year of high school.

His love for sports has been lifelong, in high school he threw the javelin, played baseball, basketball, and football. His love of sports was shared with him by his family. Following graduation from Vinton High School, he attended McNeese State University.

He possessed a boisterous personality and ability to keep everyone laughing which ensured he never met a stranger nor missed an opportunity for a new friend. He lived life to the fullest, enjoying hunting and fishing, one of his most memorable memories was the hours he fought to reel in a tuna. He was a family man, often spending time cooking for and with his mother and son. He enjoyed learning how to barbecue, a skill his best friend Scott Meche has mastered. He made the most of anything he did, making many memories together with his mother and son, visiting Disney, and taking an Alaskan cruise together.

Along with his love of sports and LSU, was his Mardi Gras Krewe. He was a member of Krewe of Chaos and looked forward to each Mardi Gras to polish his outfit for the ball and load the float with beads.

No matter a friend or family, he never missed an opportunity to let you know he valued you in his life. Always giving hugs and affection. He always left you with a smile.

Memories Timeline


  1. Candle 1Sending so many prayers.
    “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”

    • Candle 1May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God Rest In Peace, May your perpetual light shine upon him always.🙏🙏🙏🙏for the family

  2. Candle 2I miss you already Buddy!!!! All the great memories we made together. All the random text. Till We meet again someday. Love You Bro.

  3. You and I were such good friends when we were young and before I moved far away. I still have vivid memories of us, when we were 9 years oldish, playing and getting into stupid stuff. I’m glad we were able to somewhat reconnect in our later years. Hate to hear of this. Peace ✌️

    • Candle 4Still can’t wrap my head around this. You were supposed to grow old! All the memories of you growing up surround me. Give your dad a big hug and kiss for me! Rest In Peace sweetheart, I will love you forever!

  4. I became friends with Keith while working at the isle of capri many years ago. He was genuine and could always light up a room with his smile and banter. Hadn’t spoken with him in years but when we did it was like we hadn’t missed a beat. Praying for his family and son. He was a great guy. Keep watch over us all Keith. I know him and Jay (another former employee who was lost too young from the isle are cutting up right now) hello govna!!! Love you Keith.

  5. Candle 1May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God Rest In Peace, May your perpetual light shine upon him always.🙏🙏🙏🙏for the family

  6. Candle 4Rest in Him. You will live in our hearts forever and we will never forget your million dollar smile or your famous Carrot Cakes. Praying for your family and friends.

  7. Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.

    And a big ole EEEEEEEEPP one last time.


  8. Roxanne,
    Please accept our sincere sympathies in the loss of Keith…so very sorry to hear this. Heather & him had lots of fun as small children & neighbors. She remembered that he always liked Scooby Doo. May you turn to the Lord for your comfort & peace. Sincerely, Henry & Connie Gormly

  9. Today in church the gospel reading discussed the Great Commandment, you shall love the Lord with all your heart… and the second greatest commandment, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. It immediately made me think of Keith and how definitely loved his neighbor. He had that big smile and a hug for everyone he met. It didn’t matter how long it had been since he last saw you, you felt like he was genuinely happy to see you. Keith really was the model of “love thy neighbor” and I’m proud to have called him a friend. Continued prayers for Britan, Mrs. Roxanne, Mr. Mitch, and all of his family and friends. We will never forget him.
