Wilson J. Hebert, a native of Lafourche and resident of Larose, passed away at the age of 96 at the Oaks of Houma on October 26, 2018.

A Memorial mass will be held at Our Lady of the Rosary Church on Thursday, December 6 at 10 a.m.

He is survived by his two sons, Rickey and Dewey Hebert; a host of nieces and nephews; Jude Esponge, whom he considered his grandson; best friend, Keely Folse; and sister in law, Betty C. Terrebonne.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Hilda C. Hebert; parents, Jean Stevens and Walton Hebert; brothers, Wilton, Eddie, Harry, Milton, Dewey and Preston; sisters, Beulah, Maggie, Velma and Viola.

He served his country during WWII with the 101st Airborne division and was very proud of it. He was an avid gardener, enjoyed packing fruits and vegetables.

We would like to thank the staff of the Oaks in Houma and also the staff of St. Catherine Hospice for taking good care of him.

Everyone is invited to the Memorial Mass, especially the members of VFW Post 3665 of Raceland.
