Melvin “T-Mel” Comeaux Jr., 57, a native of Galliano and resident of Cut Off passed away on October 25. Visitation will take place on October 29 at St. Joseph Catholic Church from 9 a.m. until service time. Funeral Mass will begin at 11 a.m. with burial following in Our Lady of Prompt Succor Cemetery.

Mr. Melvin is survived by his loving wife and life companion of 32 years, Lori Griffin Comeaux; son Trey (Ana); daughters, Brianna (Thomas) and Brynn (working on it.....). He was fortunate to have gotten to know, love, and spend time with two of his greatest joys: his grandchildren, Rosie and Cullen. He is also survived by his father, Melvin Comeaux Sr. (Ollie); brothers, Stevie (Shirley, Nicole, Tracie) and Billy (Cece, BJ, Bryson)

Mr. Comeaux was preceded in death by his mother, Patsy; sister Page; son, Nicholas; and niece, Sloane.

His great passions were hunting, motorcycles, fishing, and anything that kept him outdoors. Camp Big Griff will never be the same without The Grill Master, gigging captain, thanksgiving turkey fryer, fish cleaner, and expert fishing hole navigator.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations of live plants for a memorial garden.

Falgout Funeral Home of Galliano entrusted with arrangements.
