Obituary

Armand Benedict Devezin passed away peacefully at his home while surrounded by family on May 17, 2020, after fighting an extended, courageous battle with renal cancer. He was preceded in death by his wife of 42 years, Glenda Rousseau Devezin. He was the loving father of Armand Jr., Lisa, Tristan (Jennifer), and Dominique (Ryan). Son of Pearl Boucree and the late Armond A. Devezin. Brother of Tyrone G. Devezin and the late Brian E. Devezin (Vicky). He was the proud grandfather of Jazzmonique, Gabriel, Macy, Holleigh, Elizabeth, Olivia, Destiny, Faith, Eleanor Grace, Christopher, and Evangeline. Preceded in death by grandparents, Addie Monroe and Thaddeus Stanice Boucree, Lugenia Montgomery and Benoit Prudhomme Devezin; in-laws Sylvia Vignaud and Earl Rousseau, brother-in-laws, Tristan and Paul Rousseau. Armand leaves to cherish his memory, devoted friend and companion Rosalynne Dennis who gave him understanding, counsel, moral support and was a tireless advocate during his illness. Sisters-in-law Vicky, Lisa (Ricky), and Cynthia (Raoul), nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and a host of cousins and close friends. Armand was born on December 26, 1951 in New Orleans. He was a longtime resident of St. Tammany Parish and a current resident of Pearl River, LA. He was a graduate of John McDonough H.S., received his BA from Southern University in New Orleans, MA from Xavier University, and his Ph.D. from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. Armand spent the majority of his career in service to the community with the Orleans Parish School Board in education (English teacher at Edward H. Philips Junior High School, Assist. Principal - Warren Easton Fundamental High School, Principal - Frantz Elementary and Live Oak Middle School, Executive Director of Title 1, Chief of Staff.) Armand took a six-year hiatus from the school board as Dean of the Center for Lifelong Learning at Dillard University. He returned to the School Board post-Hurricane Katrina as the Executive Director of Human Resources/Chief of Staff. In post-retirement Armand served the children of Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary as School Operations Officer. Armand was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Inc. Fraternity and a devoted member of the La Creole Research Association. We are eternally grateful to our cousins, Dr. Joseph B. Boucree, MD, Orthopedic Surgery who helped guide us through this arduous journey and provided enormous humor, moral, and professional support. Dr. Stanley A. Boucree, Jr. MD, who was an unselfish and valuable resource. And Aunt Lugenia "Lukey" Devezin for her ready, comforting smile and spiritual support. No father could be any prouder of the way his children and grandson Gabriel stepped up during these difficult times to ensure Armand maintained his dignity when dignity was in short supply. This is a true testament to the love of family. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions, a private service will be held at Mount Olivet Cemetery prior to interment.
