The Louisiana Ragin' Cajun athletic department is mourning the loss of a beloved staff member.

Lynn Williams, who served as Louisiana's equipment manager for football and other sports since 1985, died at his home on Wednesday.

Williams was 56.

The loss of Williams comes six days after the passing of Leonard Wiltz, who also worked for the University for more than 40 years.

A graduate of Lafayette High School, Wiltz passed away last Thursday, at the age of 59.

The two were well-liked and respected by everyone they came in contact with, and will unquestionably be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of Williams and Wiltz, who both meant so much to them, and the entire Ragin' Cajun family
