William Lewis Sire

March 24, 1948 — October 17, 2021

On Sunday, October 17, 2021, William Lewis Sire, a native of Algiers and a resident of Gretna, transitioned from this world into the arms of Jesus at the age of 73. He departed peacefully in his home with the love of his life, Sharon, at his side. We all knew him as “Willie” or as his parents would call him “Lewis”. Willie will be remembered by so many as a great friend, an amazing teacher, a wonderful father, a loving husband, a generous Paw Paw, a sweet uncle, an outstanding athlete, an avid hunter and fisherman, and the list goes on..
Willie met Sharon at Behrman High School when they were only 13 years old in 7th grade. The Najt family can’t remember a time when Willie wasn’t hanging around their home in Algiers. They were high school sweethearts and married for 51 years.
He is survived by their 3 daughters and 1 son; Stacie Sire (Dan), Jennifer Rouprich (Steve), Billy Sire (Amber), Melissa Woodrow (Joel) and his younger brother, Lester “Buck” Sire (Kathy) . His life is rich with memories of his 9 grandchildren: Joshua, Mikki, Jaci, Hayden, Carson, Stefanie, Lexie, Alexander, and Eliana. He was predeceased by his parents, William Joseph Sire andElizabeth Cardin Sire. And by his parents-in-law, Charles John Najt and Hilda Ruiz Najt. He is also survived by a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives and devoted friends.
Willie loved all the family gatherings we had for holidays, barbecues, crawfish boils and any time he could spend with his family and friends. He would captivate his audience with how well he told stories from his past. Willie is deeply loved, cherished by so many, and leaves us with great memories.
Willie’s life will be honored in a celebration of life service on Saturday, November 6, 2021
at 11:00 AM Woodland Presbyterian Church, 5824 Berkley Drive, Algiers, Louisiana 70131
The service will begin at 11:00 AM with a reception to follow. The family would like to thank all the kind people who helped care for Willie over the past few years.
