James Douglas Meyer

James “Jimmy” Douglas Meyer, 54, passed away on Saturday, May 13, 2023. Jimmy was born in Welsh, LA, a native of Chauvin, LA and resident of New Iberia, LA where he was a parishioner of St. Marcellus Church. Family and friends of the family are invited to attend a memorial service on Saturday, May 20th at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Chauvin, LA from 9:00am until service time. A Memorial Mass will follow visitation at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Chauvin, LA beginning at 11:00am with burial following services in the church cemetery.

Jimmy is survived by his loving family; his wife of 25 years, Angela LeCompte Meyer; adored daughter, Caroline Ann Meyer; devoted mother, Bobbie Meyer; caring sister, Angie Cunningham and husband Troy; treasured mother-in-law, Annie LeCompte; sisters-in-law, Danna “Dino” Champagne and husband Michael “Coo”, Debra Doiron and husband Mike; nephews, Kevin Crispino and wife Emily, Kyle Crispino, Charles Michael Warren, Michael “Mikey” Champagne, John Warren and wife Meagan, Brian Warren; niece, Katie Carriere and husband Derek; and many loving great nephews.

Jimmy is preceded in passing by his loving father, Edwin “Willie Boy” Meyer; father-in-law, Ferdinand “Pele” LeCompte; maternal grandparents, Elyard and Cora Royer Caswell; paternal grandparents, Matthew Joseph Sr. and Mary Catherine Scheufens Meyer.

Jimmy was full of life and made many special connections with so many people in his life. He worked hard from a very early age learning many skills and talents, currently as a Senior Project Manager with Q.C.P. for the last 17 years. He had many close friends from New Iberia to Chauvin that all share many fun memories, including his annual Pantuzo group who all referred to him as “Shnick.” He made many memories traveling with different groups of friends to various beaches, all with their own unique stories. He loved spending time with all his family and enjoyed holiday gatherings bouncing from Chauvin to Dularge to visit with everyone. He had several dogs through the years who were like children to him as he had a special love for each. More than anything, he treasured his beloved home life on a corner lot on a secluded road in the “country,” where every day he enjoyed quality time with Angela and Caroline, the loves of his life.

The family would like to thank all his friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and lifelong buddies who have reached out to express their love for Jimmy. He will truly be missed by so many.

Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of James “Jimmy” Meyer.
