Come out and join us this Thursday night at Sandy Hill Fire Department, 6:30 PM for an introductory class in personal self defense/situational awareness. Refuse to be a victim. We will be hosting more advanced classes over the next couple of months. All are welcome, our female firefighters and other first responders are highly encouraged to attend.

Speaking to the homeowner / occupant is the best plan.

Speaking to the homeowner / occupant is the best plan.

Station 4 was alerted for the automatic fire alarm. En route, Chief 46 was told by communications that proper passcode was received by homeowner and was wishing to cancel the fire dept. Per station 4 policy, Engine 45 continued in to confirm no fire dept services were needed. Upon arriving, members attempted to locate a homeowner. When no one came to the door, they completed a 360 of the residence and found someone needing medical attention at the rear of the home. Another member investigated the alarm and found food burning on the stove. EMS was called and tended to the patient while members of our station took care of the stove and ventilation. This is a prime example of why automatic fire alarms should always be treated as true emergencies! Job well done, Station 4!

Surrounded by family, Edmond (“Junior”) LaCaze Jr. of Hicks, Louisiana peacefully departed this life Tuesday, August 21, 2018, in The Woodlands of Leesville. Funeral services will be held Friday, August 24, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. at Hicks United Pentecostal Church with Reverends Huey Haymon and Greg Mortenson officiating. Burial will follow in the Hicks Pentecostal Church Cemetery under the direction of Jeane’s Funeral Service. Pallbearers will be Paul Poe, Richard Bailes, Cam Florendo, Brandon McKee, Ross Goins, and Caleb LaCaze. Honorary pallbearers will be Kynel Davis, D.D. Davis, and Larry Burns.

Visitation for the family and friends of Mr. LaCaze will be held from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 23rd at Hicks Pentecostal Church.

Junior was born New Year’s Day of 1937 to the late Edmond E. LaCaze Sr. and Anabel Brister LaCaze and he was a lifelong resident of Hicks. He married Margaret Ann Carr in the summer of 1957. In the 1950s he served honorably in the U.S. Army, and following his military service, he went on to work for NASA at Biloxi, Miss., Scogin Auto Parts, and as a Probation and Parole Officer Supervisor for the Louisiana Department of Corrections in West Central Louisiana until retirement in 2006. Junior also served as the Hicks Fire Department Chief, retiring in 2017. He truly relished the lifelong friendships formed and the difference he made in the lives of others through the years. Junior could often be found rocking a baby to sleep and he loved to visit with family, friends, and neighbors on the front porch or at the local store over a cup of coffee, playing and a pickin’ his guitar on a Friday night, or watching an old episode of Gunsmoke. Junior rarely met a stranger and he was deeply loved and respected by all that knew him in the community.

Known as Junior to many, Daddy to his three children, and Pawpaw to his grandchildren, the legacy he leaves will endure for many generations and he will forever be cherished in the lives of his family and friends. Junior is survived by his wife of 61 years, Margaret; one sister Shaunda Tafel of Hudson, FL; daughter, Donnis LaCaze Poe and her husband, Paul D. Poe; son, Daniel LaCaze; daughter, Linda LaCaze Smith; six grandchildren: Deshae LaCaze Goins and her husband, Ross; Amy Poe Florendo and her husband, Cam; Courtney LaCaze McKee and her husband, Brandon; Jaclyn Poe Bailes and her husband, Richard; and Caleb LaCaze and his wife, Jessika; eleven great grandchildren: Gabe Sumner and his wife, Colleen, Brooklynn Sumner; Addison Bailes; Stella Florendo; Heidi Bailes; Ross (“Duece”) Goins II; Coleman Florendo; Hayden Gordy; Brody McKee; Ruby Bailes; Max McKee; and Cannon LaCaze; and great-great grandson, Cade Sumner. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Dalphard LaCaze, and his beloved grandson,Benjamin(“Ben”)Smith.

The family would like to sincerely thank the staff of Heart of Hospice of Alexandria and the staff of the Woodlands of Leesville who by their gentle care and compassion made Junior’s last days in this life as comfortable as possible. The family also wishes to thank Tara Humphrey, Robin McInnis, and Linda Tibbett, three dedicated caregivers that loved and cared for Junior the past several weeks and were immense blessings during this time.

“Last Coffee Call” Junior enjoyed coffee every morning with family and friends. The family would like to invite everyone to join us for the “Last Coffee Call” Friday morning at 6:30 a.m. at Hicks Pentecost Church Fellowship Hall. Join us for one last cup.

Had a good class on wild land fires last night at our department. A very good turnout of personnel. It is a very good feeling to have a full class room. It shows that people care about their community and likes the type of work we do as fire fighters. As Chief, it sure makes me feel good. I love everyone of my fire fighters cause they are my Big Family.

Had some good training with New Llano FD last night. Did hose pulls and loading so that when both departments work together at a fire everyone will know how each department operates and where the equipment is located on the trucks.
