In memory of
Claude D. Vasser
Claude D. Vasser, born Oct. 21, 1937 in Houma, LA to Bernice R. Rose and David E. Vasser, passed away on Feb. 13, 2020 in Metairie, LA surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sherry, a son C. David Vasser, Jr., a daughter Vickye V. Vasser, a sister Vicki V. Day, brother in law Russell L. Day, a niece, four nephews, six grandchildren, and a great granddaughter. His father worked in the oil fields and the family lived in various boomtowns in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. He attended Gulf Coast Military Academy in Gulfport, MS and graduated from Natchez High School in Natchez, MS, where he delivered the commencement essay he titled "To Thine Own Self Be True." He obtained a degree in Geology at LSU, where he was a member of the LSU Pershing Rifles, Scabbard and Blade, and Association of the U.S. Army. He was commissioned an Army 2nd Lt., served as a combat engineer platoon leader in Germany, and as an instructor of officers at the Army Engineering School in Ft. Belvoir, VA. After his service, he was employed by Travelers Ins. Co. in New Orleans as a claims adjuster and attended Loyola Law School at night, where he was a member of the Law Review. After obtaining his law degree in 1968, he joined the Jones Walker law firm where he practiced for twenty-two years. He then formed with Claire V. Trinchard the Vasser and Trinchard law firm, where he worked with his daughter. He later partnered with his son to form the Vasser and Vasser law firm. He was a 32nd Degree Mason and a great lawyer who enjoyed hunting and spending time with his beloved dogs, which he took daily to the playground and other places. He also enjoyed spending time with his friends and family talking about life and the topics of the day. He was a very intelligent, loving, caring, wise and generous man who always gave sage advice and great moral support and encouragement to all who knew him. He had a tremendously positive affect on the lives of many, and he will be sorely missed and never forgotten. Visitation and Memorial Service will be at Lake Lawn Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70124, on Monday, February 17, 2020. Visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m., with Memorial Service immediately following.
