Louisiana Athletics mourns the loss of two staff members who passed away recently – Wiltz & Williams

Louisiana Athletics mourns the loss of two staff members who passed away recently.

Leonard Wiltz, who worked for the University for more than 40 years, passed away at his home in Lafayette this past Thursday. Leonard served in many capacities with the department, bringing a tireless work ethic, an engaging smile, and a quick joke.

Lynn Williams served more than 30 years as equipment manager for the Ragin’ Cajuns. It was a job he loved, and he was loved in return by the many student-athletes and staff he impacted over the many seasons he worked with the University. Lynn passed away at his home in Lafayette on Wednesday.

Statement from Director of Athletics Bryan Maggard

"The entire Louisiana Athletics family mourns the loss of these two special individuals. Both Leonard and Lynn dedicated their lives to the service of the University of Louisiana and its student-athletes. The impact they had on so many people will serve as their legacy, and both will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families."

Patrick Crawford

Assistant AD for Communications & Digital Strategy
