Oneil John Guidry, 77, earned his angel wings on March 18, 2021 when he peacefully went to heaven to be with our Lord. O.J., Papa, Jay and Juice were just a few of the names he answered to by the many people that loved and adored him. O.J. was born at home in Cut Off, LA on October 24, 1943. He was preceded in death by his devoted parents Oneil and Lillie Molere Guidry and his dear brother, Roy Guidry and his sister-in-law Faye.
Jay will forever be remembered by his selfless and devoted wife, Linda, and their children Felicia and Michael Fox and Dwight and Amy Olivier, and Chivonne Guidry. He will be missed greatly by his precious grandchildren, Magnolia, Maddox, Millicent, J.D. and Michaela Fox and Simone and Raymond Olivier. He will also be lovingly remembered by his brother, Dudley Guidry (Monita RIP), his sister, Annette Triche (Sydney), and sister-in-law Nage. Many nieces and nephews and his adoring large family in Louisiana.
O.J. was raised in the heart of cajun country in Cut Off, LA and spend his entire life “down the bayou” with his family. O.J. proudly supplied oysters to south Louisiana while he owned and operated O.J. Guidry Seafood for 30+ years. In the fall of 1982, he met his beautiful bride Linda and instantly fell in love. They were married in June 1985, and he moved “up the bayou” to join her family there. He and Linda continued operating their business and raising their children in Thibodaux for many years. He worked diligently to get Felicia and Dwight through school and continued to support all their endeavors along that journey.
