New Orleans, LA

On February 27, 2024 Robert “Rob” Warren DeLong Jr., 50, and his cancer tumor (nicknamed Arnold) called a truce and died after 18 months of togetherness. Rob is survived by his mom and stepfather, Diane and Richard Copley of Memphis; his father, Robert “Bob” DeLong Sr. of Orlando; his partner and a soulmate, Tracie Bertaut of Destrehan; his chosen family, Dave McFarland, Royann Smith, and the LaBowe family – Nichole and Lindsay; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins in Tennessee, as well as coworkers from Hancock Whitney Bank and dozens of friends who appreciated his humor and steadfastness. Rob was smart in many ways and sassy most of the time. He took enormous pleasure in good food, which made his diagnosis of esophageal cancer particularly cruel. He was an avid fancy cheese connoisseur and loved a robust charcuterie board. His favorite though was chips and queso with a margarita to wash it down. He enjoyed traveling, being at the beach, and playing with his girlfriend’s dogs, Mudbug and Bella. He was a graduate of the University of Vermont and a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. His interests and passions were varied throughout his life – high school lacrosse, Dungeons & Dragons, painting miniatures, golf, and cooking. He had mastered the art and science of frying a turkey. Friendsgiving will never be the same without him. By nature and profession, Rob was risk adverse and didn’t like leaving anything to chance, yet he played the lottery every week and rarely used an alarm clock. While he hated phones in theaters, wearing long pants, and drivers who don’t use blinkers, he loved corn in any form, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and grocery shopping at Robert’s on Tuesday evening. A loyal Kansas City Chiefs fan for decades, Rob appreciated that the team pulled off the Super Bowl win for him. The game was to be the last thing he watched on television. He wasn’t particularly great at Fantasy Football but enjoyed being in the same league with friends for the last 25 years. Born in Winter Park, FL, he lived in Memphis, TN; Pelham Manor, NY; Middletown Springs and Burlington, VT; Atlanta, GA; Cary, NC; Birmingham, AL; and New Orleans, LA. To honor and remember him, family, friends, and coworkers will gather at Carretas Grill, 2320 Veterans Blvd, Metairie, LA 70002, on March 9, 2024, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. for chips and queso and a round or two of margaritas. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice.

August went on to obtain a B.A. degree from Loyola University and was a member of Sigma Alpha Kappa fraternity. He served in the United States Army from 1954 - 1956 at Camp Gordon and Fort Bragg and obtained the rank of 1st Lieutenant at the 504 Military Police Battalion. Upon his Honorable Discharge, August started Loyola Law School and graduated in 1959 along with notable classmates including Marcel Garsaud, Eugene Murret, Gasper Schiro, Lolis Elie, Lambert Hassinger, and James Lockhart, Jr. For over 50 years, August practiced law in New Orleans. He served as the attorney for the Recorder of Mortgages office during Maurice (“Moon”) Landrieu’s administration, served as an Assistant City Attorney during Ernest “Dutch” Morial’s administrations, and as the City Notary during Marc Morial’s administrations. August also maintained a private law practice through the years with the likes of Kalford K. Miazza, Sr., Gerald P. Fedoroff, Frank Varela, and Michael O’Keefe. He was friends and counsel to the likes of Pascal Calogero (Chief Justice, Louisiana Supreme Court), Moon Landrieu (Mayor and Judge, 4th Circuit Court of Appeals), Marcel Garsaud (Dean, Loyola Law School), Christian Ansel (Christian’s and Galatoire’s restaurant), Henry “Hank” Bergeron (Christian’s restaurant), Ernest “Ernie” Masson (Masson’s restaurant), Robert “Bob” Roth (Steak Knife restaurant), J.B.

He worked out for many years at the New Orleans Athletic Club where he also served in all officer positions including all officer positions of the Hinder Club. His longtime workout partner was Al Ecuyer. Most recently he attended “Super Slow” with Ryan Hall at Exercise Science in Mid City. Another of August’s passions was opera. From early on, more than 60 years ago, August held third row orchestra seats at the opera, which he attended regularly. For many, many years he was a member of The Men’s Opera Club, a support organization that met before each production to meet the stars and enjoy a gourmet meal. He was a long time member of the Board of Directors and of the Legal Committee. Later he served for a time on the Advisory Committee. His decided preference in opera was the 19th Century Italian repertoire, principally Verdi and Puccini, and the bel canto composers. He admired and supported the work of the late Maestro Lyall, longtime director of the opera. His friend and tennis buddy, Joe Young, was onetime President and benefactor, as was the late Sal Panzeca, also a patron and for several years President of NOOA. He shared his love of opera with many of his friends, including his cousin and close friend, J.T. La Nasa, an opera singer himself. The family would like to thank all of his many friends and, especially, Darlene Frannino, his longtime legal secretary; his and Willie’s care givers, Trish, Trenelle, Shawanda, and others; and his many doctors, including Dr. Jayne Gurtler and Dr. Paul Spring. Visitation will begin at 1:30 p.m. with a Memorial Mass beginning at 3:00 p.m. at the Chapel of North American Martyrs at Jesuit High School, 4133 Banks St. New Orleans.
