Daniel "Capt. Dan" Lemoine
August 26, 1946 - June 19, 2018
Daniel "Capt. Dan" Alan Lemoine, beloved husband of Elizabeth Genovese Lemoine, proud father of Craig (deceased), Todd (Jodi), Eric (Jennifer), and Danielle (Glen). Cherished "Papa" of his 8 grandchildren, Brandon, Baylee, Ian, Nicholas, Ryleigh, Gaven, Talon, & Quinn. He went to be with his Lord on June 19, 2018 at UMC in New Orleans, surrounded by his devoted wife & children. We did not leave his side for 9 days after being struck by a car while riding his motorcycle.
Capt. Dan was born to the late Anthony, Sr. and Edna Mae Lemoine at Port Hueneme Naval Base in California and was a lifelong resident of St. Bernard Parish. He was married to his high school sweetheart for 51 years. The family suffered the loss of their beloved first son, Craig, whom was struck by a car as well on December 26, 1985. Dan's most cherished times were spent with his children, grandchildren and riding his motorcycle. Dan was a proud graduate of Chalmette High School, class of 1965. After graduation, he entered the Merchant Marines then joined the Navy. After attending radio school, he became a radio disc jockey for WCKW for "Dan's Round Round of Sound." Dan was the manager of K&B Drugs for 20 years before opening Capt. Dan's Cleaners. He was a commissioned officer with the St. Bernard Sheriff's Dept. For the past 18 years, he worked in the funeral industry until the time of his death. His passion was riding motorcycles for the past 60 years. He traveled over 1 million miles across the country, taking his children in tow, all as he described while "having a good one." Dan prided himself as a safe driver & had not had a motorcycle accident until now, due to the negligence of another driver.
Capt. Dan is also survived by his very special "Uncle Dennis" who he cherished like a father and his childhood friend Charles Mayaux, his only brother Anthony "Tony Lemoine, Jr, his sisters, Yvette Siebenkittel (Dave), Carol Gillian (AJ), many nieces, nephews and friends.
The family would like to especially thank the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Dept, St Bernard Parish Fire Dept, Acadian EMS and especially the exceptional medical staff of the Trauma ICU at UMC in New Orleans. Family and friends; Priests and Parishioners of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church were invited to attend the funeral. A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 2621 Colonial Blvd, Violet, LA, on Friday, June 22, 2018 at 1:30 P.M. Interment, Private. Visitation was held at 10:30 A.M. IN THE CHURCH. Family and friends were invited for a gathering following at his daughter's home.
