Donald Andrew Lockhart went to heaven on April 3, 2021, at the age of 81. He was born in Brooklyn, NY on February 19, 1940 and grew up in New Orleans, LA. He was preceded in death by his parents, Andrew Lockhart and Sophia Sito Lockhart; his siblings: Maureen Mascott, Eileen “Bubbles” Brassette, Andrew Lockhart, and Michael Lockhart.
Don is survived by his loving wife of 43 years Jane Lee Reese Lockhart; children: Lisa Cortez (Tommy), Kelly Lockhart (Jay), Andy Lockhart, stepson Clement Betpouey (Janet); grandchildren: Thomas Cortez, Tara Couch (Blake), Sophia Cortez, Patrick Lockhart (Emily), Justin Lockhart (Mercedes); great grandchildren: Mila Blake Couch; Scarlett and Layke Lockhart; Jaxson, Maverick, and Mila Pearl Lockhart; brothers: James Lockhart, Rusty Lockhart, and brother-in-law Dickie Reese. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Don had a great love for his furry companion, Spike. He was a loyal employee in the automotive industry for over 30 years. Don and his wife Jane Lee were avid members in the carnival organization, The Krewe of Rhea, where he reigned as the King of Rhea XIX in 1989. He was the life of the party, and loved being with family and friends. Some people may know him for his wit, but Don was a soft spoken, gentle man with a smile that could melt your heart. He will be greatly missed by all who were able to know him.
A celebration of Don’s life will be set for a later date. To send condolences please visit www.gardenofmemoriesmetairie.com.
