Obituary of Raymond Paul Plasse
After a brief illness, Raymond Paul Plasse passed away at home in the presence of members of his loving family on March 14, 2023. He was born on October 21, 1942, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Preceding him in death were his parents, Paul Emile Plasse of Sorel, Quebec, Canada and Rita Beauregard Plasse of Chicopee, Massachusetts. He leaves behind his wife of 58 years, Rosemarie Davis Plasse, his three children, William Plasse (Kathleen), Cheryl Thibodeaux (Scott), and Leigh Baltazar (Michael), and his six grandchildren, Linda, Shea, Austin, Sean, Shelby, and James. He is also survived by his sister, Lorraine Plasse Thibeault of Westfield, Massachusetts. Ray graduated from Cathedral High School in Springfield, Massachusetts. After serving in the United States Air Force as a radio technician, he came home and married Rosemarie Davis, his childhood sweetheart. He graduated from American International College in 1969 with a degree in accounting and later became a Certified Public Accountant. He and his family moved to LaPlace, LA in 1980, where he would live for nearly 43 years. A student of history, one of his favorite places to visit was the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. In his youth, Ray enjoyed golf and water skiing. He was a voracious reader who enjoyed scouring book fairs for new authors and titles. Nicknamed “Your Perfectness” by his kids, there was nothing he would not do for family, whether enduring a trip to Disney World, battling a roach in the middle of the night, or eating the pickle. He enjoyed playing all manner of card and word games. He had a wild sense of humor, finding laughter in everyday events, whether taking his wife for a walk, accompanying his daughters to the mall in his favorite brown corduroy trousers, or finding the patience to teach driving to his son, the “red light on his highway of life.” Besides his many cherished dogs, he enjoyed the company of dragonflies. A private celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made in his name to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.
