He was preceded in death by his father, Joe Genusa; mother, Rosie DiVincenti Genusa; sisters, Anna Mae Bourgoyne and Rose Jones, and brother, Salvador Genusa.

He was blessed with six great-grandchildren, Morgan, Mason, Carson, Seeley, Mia, and Melody as well as numerous nieces and nephews and beloved friends. During his joyous life he spent time fishing, hunting, farming, and embracing the love of his family. He was an avid businessman who left farm life and grew a dry cleaning and formal rental business, Royal Cleaners, in Baton Rouge. He believed in property investment and owned over 50 rental properties before he retired. He was an elaborate storyteller; he regaled anyone who would listen with tales of his childhood growing up in the country. His faith was a source of strength and comfort throughout his life. His family and friends will miss his ongoing support, caring spirit, comic relief, and unconditional love. He was absolutely one of a kind.
