Wilson Lantier was my father. Daddy loved his family and would do anything for them. He especially loved his grandchildren, Lori Melancon and Ross Melancon. Of course he loved my mother, Mary Grace Lantier. Daddy served in the Navy/Marines during World War II and received a Purple Heart for injuries received at Iwo Jima. Daddy was a humble man who was always willing to serve and to give to others. I miss him so much and think of him daily.
