November 17, 1943 - November 18, 2021
Wayne, at the age of 78, was called to his heavenly home on Thursday, November 18, 2021, while surrounded by his family. He was a resident of Hungarian Settlement, Louisiana. Wayne was known to be a true family man who was the happiest when he spent time with the ones he loved. “Jack of all Trades” best describes him as he was a very hard worker who proudly owned several restaurants after working his way up from being a meat cutter. Wayne enjoyed cooking and was known for his exquisite seafood. He was featured in cookbooks with celebrity chef’s and was even mentioned on the Johnny Carson Show. He loved fishing and was a member and one of the founders of The Tangipahoa Association of Bass Angler’s. He also enjoyed traveling with his family and could be found dancing on the dance floor doing the jitter bug. Wayne was a doting husband and father, and an extraordinary grandfather who will be deeply missed. He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Chris Ladner Levy; daughters, Mindy Starkey (Marty) and Monica Levy; his sibilings; grandchild, Michaela Balfantz; and great-grandchild, Carsan Culler. Wayne is preceded in death by his sons, Brian Levy and Michael Erdey; parents, Leon and Leda Ruth Levy; siblings. Pallbearers are Marty Starkey, Jordan Foster, Jim Lyons, Tom Ladner, Corey Morreale and Steve Perret. The family would like to give a special thanks to Mr. Wayne’s best friend and caregiver, Billie Ann Hutchinson and Lakeside Hospice nurses, Phil and Katelyn. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Albany Hungarian Presbyterian Church. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the visitation on Monday, November 22, 2021, held in the chapel of Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home 12012 Hwy 190 W.
