With the passing of our father, so passes a culture from the past. A culture of French heritage with deep roots. He was a simple but hard working man who enjoyed the outdoors. He was a shrimper who spent most of his life hard at work on the water, but that is the way he chose it to be.
Falgout Funeral Home in Raceland is in charge of arrangements.
