CARENCRO - Barry Louis Domingue, 54, of Carencro, Louisiana passed away Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at Lafayette General Medical Center surrounded by family and friends.
He was born March 12, 1960 in Monroe, Louisiana to Charles and Nell Hebert Domingue. As a young child, he was raised and adored by his Auntie Iola Flick.
He graduated cum laude in 1987 with a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice from University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL). He then went on to receive a Juris Doctorate (Law) Degree from Louisiana State University (LSU) graduating in 1992 at the top of his class.
Barry had a distinguished career as an attorney over the past twenty two years. Barry was a very well respected and accomplished attorney who devoted his time and energy to advocating vigorously for the rights of his clients. Whether representing some of the largest insurance companies in the world or representing individuals in dire need, Barry provided the same measure of dedication and legal excellence. Among the many accomplishments over a very successful and distinguished career, Barry was instrumental in the rendering of one of the highest jury awards in the history of Louisiana that also resulted in major changes nationwide in the pharmaceutical industry to further consumer protection, including the removal of Infants Tylenol from the national marketplace. Barry was known by all who knew him as an honest, trustworthy and honorable man. To the very end, Barry devoted his time and energy to doing what was necessary to promote justice and provoke the revelation of truth.
Barry was affectionately known as "Law Dog" by his friends and family. He was an avid bodybuilder and automobile enthusiast. He enjoyed working out at Red's, traveling, boating and spending time with his family, friends and bulldogs.
He is survived by his best friend and wife, Robin Parker Domingue; his daughter Judith Ann Domingue; his grandchildren Kade Domingue and Madison Domingue; his brothers Darren Domingue and Carlton Domingue and his sister Kyle Domingue. Barry is also survived by his dear uncles, Ralph Hebert and Leland Hebert and his aunt Edith Hebert. He also leaves behind many other aunts and uncles and nieces and nephews who loved him immensely.
Barry's loving and generous spirit continues to touch lives. We are comforted in our loss in knowing that Barry's precious gift to Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA) will help at least seventy other people, most importantly with the gift of sight.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to Special Olympics or LSU School of Veterinary Medicine.
There will be a memorial to remember and celebrate Barry's life on Sunday, April 13th 2014 at the home of Cle' and Kathy Simon at 403 Biltmore Way, Lafayette, Louisiana in River Ranch 3 - 6 PM, open to all who knew and loved him.
