Mr. LaHood, a resident of Lafayette, was the son of the late, John LaHood and the former Edna Petro. He was born and raised in Lafayette and attended Cathedral Carmel, where he gained the nickname, "Brown Bomber", by those who he was closest to. Upon graduating from high school, and with encouragement from his sister, Katherine LaHood (the matriarch of the LaHood family), he moved to New Orleans and obtained his xray technician degree. Anthony (Tony) made many friends during his 30 year career at New Orleans Charity Hospital. After retiring, he returned to his hometown of Lafayette where he spent much of his time with his family, who loved him very much, and the many friends he made during his life. He enjoyed sharing meals of kibbeh nayeh, grape leaves and boudin with his family and was a life-long Saints fan, even in the "bag" years. Anthony never met a stranger and always had a smile on his face. If you met him, you loved him.
