John M. Comeaux, 91, went on to be with the Lord
on April 9, 2018 at home while working in his beloved mayhaw orchard. He was born in Rayne, Louisiana to Louis and Celina Comeaux and was one of four children. He lived in Louisiana most of his life, but also lived in Missouri and Colorado.

He leaves to cherish his memory, his wife of 70 years, Lola Comeaux, his daughter, Brenda Vayna of Syosset, New York (and her husband Tom), one grandson, Brandon Vayna and one brother, Cecil Comeaux of Texas. He was preceded in
death by his parents, his sister Belle Comeaux Miller and his brother Harry Comeaux.
He served in the U. S. Army during World War II and then worked as a civilian repairing guns for the army at Ft. Leonard Wood in Waynesville, Missouri and
at Ft. Polk in Leesville, Louisiana until he retired in 1984. He received awards during his career for small inventions and for workplace improvement ideas such as ways to improve the flow of traffic at quitting time at Ft. Polk.

He was a sportsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing with his buddies in his younger years.
He was a long-time member of the First United Pentecostal Church in Leesville, Louisiana where in 1967, he received the Holy Ghost and was
baptized in Jesus’ name. He taught Sunday school and is known for singing “The Great Speckled Bird” with his wife, Lola, who played the guitar while he played the harmonica. After moving to Lake Charles, he was a member of Apostolic Temple for more
than twenty years.
