Merlyn Joseph Huguet passed away on Thursday, February 1, 2024, at 93. He was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on February 13, 1930, to Agenor Joseph Huguet and Stelma Ermine Frederic Huguet, who both predeceased him.

Brothers Hurley Huguet, Curtis Huguet, and one sister, Joan Huguet Robichaux, also preceded him in death.

Merlyn leaves behind to cherish his memory of four children: Merlyn Huguet, Jr. (Ollie), Keith Huguet (Liz), Toy H. Graffagini (Frank), and Chrissy Huguet. He was the proud grandfather of Austin Huguet, Dustin Huguet, and Merlyn Joseph Huguet, III.

Merlyn was a member of the World War II Museum. He truly enjoyed his time in the Air Force and often joked that he wished to return and serve. He also loved fishing.
