Tribute

Henry David Deibel entered into eternal rest at 4:00 AM on Saturday, November 18, 2023 at the age of 69. He was born July 23, 1954 in Harahan, LA to the late Earl Joseph Deibel and Myrtle Loup Deibel. The youngest of the first triplets ever born in Harahan, Henry was the loving brother of Earl John Deibel, John Joseph Deibel (Patricia), and the late Linda Guidry Zeringue (the late Melvin Guidry and Michael Zeringue). Though he had no children of his own, Henry was the proud uncle of Stephanie Adair (Jayson), Melinda Guidry (Scott Graham), Nicholas Guidry (Jessica), Lindsey Zeringue, and Jeremy Deibel (Rebecca). He is also survived by seven great-nephews and three great-nieces, and his closest and dearest friend Carlo Cross. Henry retired from the East Jefferson Levee District after 33 years of outstanding service as an equipment operator and foreman, and he was a lifelong, devout parishioner of St. Rita of Cascia Catholic Church in Harahan. Henry enjoyed spending every weekend shopping garage sales and estate sales around the New Orleans Metro area, and had a passion for antiques, interior decorating, and housekeeping. He also loved the holidays, especially Christmas, and entertaining guests on special occasions at house parties.
Family and friends are invited to attend the visitation beginning at 10:00 AM on Monday, November 27, 2023, at St. Rita of Cascia Church, 7100 Jefferson Highway, Harahan, LA. This celebration of life will be followed by a Mass at 11:00 AM and burial at Jefferson Memorial Gardens, 11316 River Road, Saint Rose, LA. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests contributions be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, https://www.stjude.org/give/memorials-and-dedications.html, a cause close to Henry’s heart.
