French executioner in the last years of French Algeria. He acted as an executioner from 1947 to 1961 and killed more than 200 people.

He inherited the job of executioner from his father Maurice Meyssonnier in 1947 when he ended compulsory education. His ancestors had been executioners for ages. When Algeria became independent from France in 1961, the guillotine was replaced by execution by firing squad.

He died in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse on 8 August 2008.
