Terry, age 72 and a resident of Saline, LA, passed away on December 2, 2019. He was born on January 3, 1947, to Henry Roy and Pearl Frederick Desadier in Natchitoches, LA. He served in the United States Army and was very proud of his patriotic service. Terry retired from Haynes International after many years of service in the maintenance department. During his free time, he enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing with family and friends. Having an easy-going personality, he instantly made friends with anyone he met. Terry was a proud member of the Butte Tribe of Bayou Bourbeaux and served as treasurer for the chief council for many years. He was a long-time member of Pine Grove Baptist Church in Castor and enjoyed fellowship with his church family. His most prized possession on earth was the relationship with his family. He loved his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and always put their needs ahead of his own. He will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.
He is survived by his children, Tammy Desadier Goodman, David Desadier, and Terry “Tad” Desadier, Jr., and his wife Crystal; a sister, JoAnne Holland and husband George; grandchildren, Austin Desadier, Autumn Rojas, Victoria Desadier, Preston Desadier, Colton Desadier, Tanner Goodman, James Prestage, Jacie Prestage, Maranda Desadier, Marisa Desadier, Bethany Temple, Travis Hargrave and Nick Newton; as well as 11 great-grandchildren.
