Henry "Pooh" Joseph Obituary

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, brother and uncle, Henry "Pooh" Joseph.  Henry was born in Lake Charles, La. to Lear Ringo Joseph and Felton Joseph Sr. on November 4, 1942.  Henry lived most of his life in Lake Charles, La. until recently moving to Westlake, La. where he resided until passing on Friday, December 15, 2023.

Henry was preceded in death by both parents, his wife, Mary Sonnier Joseph, and one sister, Mary Ann Joseph.

He leaves to cherish his memories, his only child, Tranessa Sonnier of Lafayette, La.; 6 step daughters, Delphine Jones, Elizabeth (Carl) Davis, Felicia (Germaine) Winfrey, Keisha (Shannon) Washington, Elissa Ann (Darrell) Martin, and Aletha (John) Carter all of Lake Charles, La.; 1 step son, Mario (Jasmine) Sonnier of Eunice, La.; 7 grandchildren, whom he loved dearly, Kiera Celestine, Jeremiah Celestine, Parris Celestine, Ja'den Celestine, Kar'syn Sonnier, Ja'Liyah Joseph and Jazzlyn Sonnier all of Lafayette, La.; 2 brothers, Felton Joseph Jr. of Pittsburgh, Ca. and Arthur Joseph of Hercules, Ca; his loving sister, Betty Charles and a special nephew and his wife, Mr. & Mrs. Derrick (Danielle) Charles all of Lake Charles, La. and a host of step grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Henry was employed with Lake Charles Memorial Hospital as a porter for several years before his health failed him.  In his spare time  he enjoyed watching movies while drinking a cold beer.  Henry had a huge heart  and he would give you the shirt off his back.  He always went out of his way to help anyone, including strangers.

Henry will be dearly missed by all those whose lives he touched.  His memories will continue to inspire and uplift us as we carry on his values of dedication and love.  May re rest in eternal peace.
