He is survived by 12 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, and great-great children. He was one of nine children of Felix Simoneaux, Sr. and Sedonia Vicknair. Self taught Carpenter by trade, he built his family home in which he still resided. He also built one daughter’s home; added additions to another daughter’s home, and completed finishing work on a 2nd floor addition to a son’s home. He was a very hard working, talented southern gentleman. He recently was honored with a plaque, commemorative pin and documents in recognition of being the oldest living member of Carpenter’s Union No. 1846, having served for 75+ years. He was very highly respected and loved by anyone who knew him. He was also known for his delicious vegetables which he gave to family and neighbors. After retiring at 79, he began Truck Farming, bringing his produce into French Market in New Orleans. During WWII he worked for Higgins Ship Builders, building PT boats and landing drop ramp boats – the largest landing crafts used in the Normandy Invasion. He was the oldest living citizen of this country for the past 6 months.
