Joseph (Joe) Juneau, Jr., age 72 and a resident of McComb, Mississippi, died peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, February 19, 2023 in Eunice, Louisiana.
His final days were spent in Southwest Louisiana enjoying Cajun Mardi Gras with dancing to Cajun music & eating his favorite Cajun foods with friends and his beloved wife.
Joe enjoyed time with family and friends, whether cooking, RV trips, working on projects, or telling tales. Many hours were spent duck hunting and fishing with friends. He was always eager for February because that meant it was time for LSU baseball and the hopes that the season would end with a trip to Omaha for the College World Series. In October Joe would be found at “Cruisin’ on the Coast” cruising around in his 1955 Thunderbird. Joe enjoyed life to the fullest.
