As an advisor, banker, and a friend, he touched the lives of numerous families and supported countless businesses over the years, locally as well as beyond Avoyelles. He enjoyed boating, hunting, farming, and spending time with his family. Mr. Lacombe, age 65, passed away peacefully at his residence on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, with his beloved wife and daughters by his side. His family and friends will remember him with heartfelt affection for his generous nature and love of his fellow man and deep admiration for the strength and tenacity he showed at the end of his life.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Merlin Lacombe, Sr. and Doris Roy Lacombe; and his brother, Tommy Lacombe. Those left to cherish his memory and carry his legacy include his devoted wife of 44 years, Helen Plauche Lacombe of Simmesport; two daughters, Angelle (Max) Huff of Prairieville and Jill (Travis) Gaspard of Zachary; one brother, Merlin “Bubba” Lacombe, Jr. of Prairieville; two sisters, Faye (Bruce) Juneau of Moreauville and Sue (Kevin) Lemoine of Zachary; 9 grandchildren, and numerous nephews and nieces.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to be made in Steve’s honor to The Suzanne Wright’s Foundation at codepurplenow.org for pancreatic cancer research.
