JENNINGS — The family of Daniel Lee “Danny” Maffit, 70, of Jennings, announces his passing on May 22, 2023.

The son of Garold and Patty Lyons Maffit, he was born August 8, 1952. He was a lifelong resident of Lake Arthur until recent years, when he resided in Jennings. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War. He had a large personality with a larger-than-life laugh, loved animals and most of all, cooking. He was a graduate of the Sowela Technical College Culinary Program and in earlier years found great joy in creating dishes in the kitchen or outdoors “firing up the pit”.

Left to cherish his memories are his daughters, Patty Maffit Anthony and husband Jimmy; Jean Williams and husband Mike; brother-in-law Don Robinson; two nephews; five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents Bro. Garold Maffit and Patty Lyons Maffit; his sister Diane Maffit Sneed; and niece Leslie Bergeaux.

The family has chosen the wishes of cremation under the direction of Miguez Funeral Home of Jennings. A memorial service and internment will be held on Friday June 2, 2023, at 11 a.m. in the Southwest Louisiana Veteran’s Cemetery in Jennings with Military Honors.

The family requests that donations be made in his honor to your local Veterans Home or the Wounded Warrior Project.
