A memorial celebration honoring the life of Kenneth “Moose”Delcambre will be held at 6:30 pm June 2, 2016 at Piney Woods Christian Church located in Downsville, LA (550 Hamilton Road) with Pastor Scott Jennings officiating. Visitation will be 4:30 pm-6:30 pm prior to the service at the church. Arrangements were under the direction of Farrar Funeral Home in Farmerville.
On May 27th Moose lost his battle with multiple myeloma. Family and friends never left his side as his journey to eternal life began. He was a trooper to the very end.
Moose retired from the Louisiana State Police with 30+ years and 12 more years in law enforcement. He spent many years in narcotics trying with others to keep our state free from drugs. He and many others spent many, many hours attempting this task. Throughout his career he earned the name of “The Legend”. Proudly wearing his badge and nick name “The Moose”. He was one of a kind!!
Moose was a kind, gentle giant of a man, with a heart as big as the universe. Always willing to help others. Like most Cajuns, if you crossed him you were in trouble!
He will be greatly missed by family and friends. We’ll miss his stories and his big laugh!
The family wishes to thank his great Hospice team, Hospice of Caring Hearts and Ms. Cherry. His hospice team became family to us. We thank them for the hours of care and prayers given to us through this time. The family would also express the many prayer warriors “Moose” had received during this difficult time. Our close friends who never left our side. We love y’all so much!!
Moose is survived by his wife Elizabeth Hebert Decalmbre; 2 stepchildren: Heidi Luquette & her fiancé, Craig and children: Jonas, Audi, and Piper; and Shane Luquette, his wife Nicole, and their children: Bella, Diego, Leo and soon to be Lil Francois.
Heaven has gained a true hero and legend. The Legend has truly earned his wings. Rest in Peace and be pain free.
