      John "Emery" was a graduate of St. Martinville Sr. High School. He enjoyed being project manager for many family projects and was known as "a jack of all trades and master of none". Family was very important to him. He retired after serving 23 years in the United States Air Force. He then worked for many years for the State of Louisiana at the Employment office. He then worked for Morton Chemical and retired from there when the plant closed. His strong work ethic then took him to Bruce Foods where he worked until he decided to stay home and work full-time on family projects. He was an active member of his faith community at Nativity of Our Lady and was a member of the Knights of Columbus at Nativity. His life advice is one of the many things that he passed on to all. His strong beliefs in education lead him to obtain his bachelor's degree while working and raising his family.

Grudzien and husband Richard; John (Jed) Duplantis, Jr. and wife Bonnie; Vicki D. Landry and husband Faron; Philip (Phil) Duplantis and wife Ellen; Anita D.
