Hayward Lawrence Ducre aka 'Soco' was given by God on December 08, 1947 to the late Oliver Ducre, Sr. and the late Latcia Montana Ducre.

Lawrence returned to his heavenly home on July 27, 2016.

He was a life-long member of Lacombe, LA.

In 1965, Lawrence graduated from Chahta Ima High School in Lacombe and then entered the United States Coast Guard where he served from 1965-1971.

Mr. Ducre worked for more than three decades at Lockheed Martin Space Facility where he retired in 2010. He also received the Louisiana Veterans Honor Medal from Governor Bobby Jindal in 2012 for his service in the U.S. Military. He was also a devoted member and usher at the Sacred Heart Church. Lawrence truly enjoyed working outdoors, delivering food to senior citizens, cleaning grave sites and going to Casinos.

Lawrence leaves to cherish many memories with his children Mechelle Ducre of New Orleans, Kynisha Ducre of Dallas, and Jasmine Ducre of Lacombe; two brothers Harry Ducre (Elaine) and Larry Ducre(Shirlene); his sister-in-law Beatrice Ducre (late Oliver, Jr).

His legacy further continues throughout the smiles and minds of his grandchildren Markell, Cayman, Mila, and Louis. He is also survived by aunts, uncles, a host of nieces and nephews, cousins, especially Rene 'Puddy' Young, friends, neighbors, and truly special, past co-workers.
