William Douglas Sessions

September 15, 1951 ~ February 7, 2022 (age 70)


Mr. Willam Douglas (Doug) Sessions passed away on Monday, February 7, 2022 peacefully at home.

He was a native of Shreveport, living here for 70 years. Growing up in the jewelry business, Doug expressed an interest in making jewelry when standing by his father’s workbench as a young child. At age 9, he was repairing jewelry but was not paid until he was 12. By age 14 he was buying his own car. When his father passed away, Doug left college to come home to help his mother keep Leonard’s Jewelers open. He was the third generation to continue the legacy begun in 1900 by his grandfather.

He and his friends enjoyed taking trips to play golf for many years. Doug loved Pebble Beach, proudly telling us of breaking 99 there.

Mr. Sessions was preceded in death by his Father: William A. Sessions, Mother: Elizabeth Leonard Sessions, Brothers in Law: Billy G (Jerry) Bryant and Roy D. Campisi.

He is survived by two sisters, Elizabeth S. Bryant, and Judy Campisi; one brother, Leonard A. Sessions and wife Linda.

Memorial services will be scheduled at a later time.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to the charitable organization of the donor’s choice.

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Johnathan Davis, MD, Marissa Adams, PA-C, Kelsey, Alicia, Amy and Melissa at Pierremont Cardiology.
