Jennings: It's with heavy hearts and great sadness that the family of Paul D. Bourgeois, 78, announces his passing on Friday evening at his home in Jennings while surrounded by his beloved family. Funeral services for Mr. Bourgeois will be held at Matthews & Son Funeral Home in Jennings on Monday, August 23, 2010 @ 9:00 AM with Rev. Paul Estes officiating. The family requests visitation be observed on Sunday evening from 5:30 PM until 9:00 PM and resume on Monday morning at 8:00 AM until the time of his services. Mr. Bourgeois will be laid to rest beside his beloved wife, Mary Deaville Bourgeois, in Greenwood Cemetery where he will be honored with full military rites.

Paul was born in Jennings to the late Adolph & Clemence Daigle Bourgeois in December of 1931. He served his country proudly in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict. He was also a purple heart recipient and received the Korean Conflict service medal on the 50th anniversary of the war. Paul was the only survivor in his company. After his service to his country, Paul worked in the oil field industry as a roughneck. He was a very proud and loving man and his family meant the world to him. He was truly loved by many and will be greatly missed.

Leaving behind to mourn his loss and cherish his memories are his daughter, Mrs. Ronnie (Lela) Whiddon of Evangeline; 2 step children, Carl (Rebecca) Benoit and Lisa Benoit all of Lake Arthur; and his beautiful grandchildren, Tyra Lynn (Sidney) Whiddon Hebert and Brandon Lee Whiddon all of Evangeline; great grandchildren, Kathryn Benoit, Mikhael Hebert, Gabrielle Hebert, Erik Hebert, Drake Whiddon, and Mallory Whiddon.

Now Mr. Bourgeois rests in Heaven with his beloved parents and wife; 1 son, George Paul Bourgeois; 1 step son, Randy Benoit; and 1 sister, Verda Miller.
