Fond Farewell to Mr. Gene Pontiff
June 18, 2013
Gene Thomas Pontiff, 72, a native and resident of Houma, passed away on June 10, 2013. Mr. Gene was a beloved member of the LUMCON family and served as a security guard for 16 years before retiring in 2011. Mr. Gene served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War and was awarded full military honors and burial. Those of us who stay down in Cocodrie overnight had much time to get to know Mr. Gene, although he was a quiet man. He is remembered fondly by all at LUMCON, and our hearts are with his wife Shirley and the many members of his family.
