In Memory of




Obituary for Darren James Gauthier

God looked down on earth and called the spirit of our dear loved one home on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner, LA, at the age of 59.

Darren James Gauthier was born on October 14, 1960 in New Orleans, LA to the late George and Josepha Edwards Gauthier. He was a 1981 graduate of West St. John High School. On December 29, 1984 he became the proud father of his one and only daughter Javon Julian Victorian.

Darren was the loving father of Javon J. (Norman Jr.) Victorian; brother of Joan, Anthony ‘Husky” (Orelia), Dale, Donald and Ronald (Deishaun) Gauthier, and Lora (Byron) Bailey. He was the grandfather of Janai Turner, Jayla and Niya Julian. Darren was also the Godfather of Anthony Gauthier Jr. and Tashika E. Washington and the Godson of Walter Edwards and Faye Gauthier.

Darren was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to any and every one in need. He was our very own personal “handyman”. He loved his family and spoiled his grandkids every chance he had. He could often be found running around the yard with them, along with his nephew Kai. He was a faithful, dedicated worker at CCS in Harahan, LA until he left.

Darren leaves to cherish his memory a devoted friend Carlis Johnson and her three sons; his daughter Javon J. (Norman Jr.) Victorian; grandchildren: Janai Turner, Jayla and Niya Julien; his sisters, brothers, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Darren was preceded in death by his parents George and Josepha E. Gauthier, a brother George Wright and a sister Teresa G. Lumar.
