PASCAL CHARLES MESSINA, JR., a/k/a "Charlie", 86, resident of Slidell, Louisiana, died on April 15, 2022, in Bradenton, Florida, from complications related to stroke.
Charlie is survived by his wife, Ruby Mae, his children, Lori Messina Piner, Pascal Charles Messina, III, Lisa Parker Messina, and Steven Anthony Messina, and his grandchildren, Ryan Vigreux, Megan Messina, Michael Perrett, Matthew Perrett and Jacob Messina, as well as his stepchildren, Ronald Dupre, Dennis Dupre, and step-grandchild, Paul Dupre.

Charlie was born on January 22, 1936, in New Orleans, Louisiana to Antoinette Failla Messina and Pascal Charles Messina. He was employed by NOPSI/Entergy for 35 years. He retired at 55, when his life truly began. Charlie had many passions. He loved to bet the horses, and competed in many Horserace Betting Competitions. He also loved living on Lake Pontchartrain, fishing, boating and crabbing. Charlie was quite the dancer and singer and he could be found many a weekend dancing with his lovely bride, Ruby, at many of the local Slidell functions or singing Karaoke at the local club. Charlie loved people and was a member of many local Slidell clubs including, Krewe of Bilge and Poor Man's Yacht Club.
Charlie lived life to the fullest and everyone that knew him loved him. He will surely be missed by both family and friends.
