Luc Andre Odabashian, age 53, passed away on Thursday July 3, 2014, at his home in Woodland Hills, California. Luc was born in Beirut, Lebanon where he attended French school. At the onset of the Lebanese civil war, his family moved to Los Angeles in 1975 when Luc was a high school freshman. After high school he completed undergraduate studies at UCLA, then pursued his law degree at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. He spoke five languages. Luc married Rosalind Auzenne in 1986 and they resided in Woodland Hills, California, for 27 years. They have two daughters, Christine age 22 and Chloe age 12.

Since 2004 Luc served as Associate Regional Counsel for Program Enforcement in Los Angeles for the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. From 1991 to 2004 he served as the Lead Attorney to HUD's Departmental Enforcement Center in Los Angeles and had also worked as a program attorney-advisor for the Chief Counsel's office. From 1986 to 1991, Luc practiced law at the firm of McKiernan, Gurrola, Moriwaki and Brady, and was in-house counsel for a fledgling diamond mining company. He was licensed to practice in California and Nevada. Luc was recently honored with the Lifetime Award by the office of General Counsel at HUD; and also the Curry Award, the highest honor awarded by the Office of General Counsel at HUD in recognition of excellence and integrity.

Luc loved nature, art, books, music, movies, and sports. Luc was a loving husband, father, brother, son, son-in-law, and friend, and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Services are being planned in September in order to accommodate family coming from France.
