Obituary for Haltron Adams Jr.

Haltron Adams, Jr., age 85, transitioned to his heavenly home on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at Ochsner-Kenner Hospital, surrounded by family and friends. He was a native of New Orleans, LA and longtime resident of Vacherie, LA. He was a retired basketball coach and history teacher from Alcee Fortier High School and his love of the sport never died. His memories will forever be treasured in the hearts of his children Haltron III (GiGi), Rodwick (Christa), Sandra Grant (Alonzo) and Natasha Montgomery (Randall). He will also be missed by a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, other relatives and friends. He also leaves an empty place with his beloved cousin and “road dog” Norwood “Jerome” Adams.

Nordette Adams

Natasha, you have my condolence for the loss of your father and my cousin. I did not find out that he had passed away until after the funeral, or I would have tried to be there.
