A Compilation of Remarks Delivered by Alden “Doc” Laborde after Receiving the API-Delta Chapter Meritorious Service Award– February, 2003

Posted on May 30, 2015


In June, 2014, we lost one of the real heroes of our industry, Alden "Doc" Laborde. He was one of our own. I was lucky enough to be in the audience the day he accepted our chapter's Meritorious Service Award in 2003. What followed was the below moving, poignant speech. Recently, I found his notes, a mixture of hand written and typed ideals, and decided to compile them and post for all to enjoy and benefit from. Very little editing has been performed, principally for flow and readability. For background, see the following obituary courtesy of John Pope with the New Orleans Times Picayune. Benjamin J. Waring, Past Chairman, API Delta Chapter.
