Cary Ronald Bargas passed away on Sunday, March 19, 2017 at the age of 69. Cary was a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, born to Adeline and Gordon Bargas on September 18, 1947. He was an 11 year resident of Lake Fork, Texas. Cary was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. He had a contagious zest for life and lived every moment to the fullest, celebrating every day as a gift from God. He was always able to have a good time regardless of circumstances, and kept his wonderful sense of humor until the end. Cary was a very giving and generous man, always concerned for the well being of others, and doing all he could to ensure everyone was happy. In August 2016, after the historic flooding in Baton Rouge, while still coping with the cancer that eventually took his life, Cary and his wife, Kathy, loaded up their car and a trailer full of supplies, and drove to Baton Rouge to help relieve the suffering of those in their hometown. Cary spent a week serving 150 meals a day to flood victims. Cary was an active member of First United Methodist Church of Quitman, TX, where he and Kathy taught the young adult Sunday school class. Cary loved his class members like they were his own children. Cary will be remembered for his love of fishing, cooking, and the outdoors. He enjoyed his camp on Lake Verret for 48 years, until he and Kathy moved to Lake Fork, Texas in 2006 to live and fish, and spend time with their three grandsons, of whom Cary was extremely proud. Cary first met his wife, Mary Katherine "Kathy" Brown Bargas at North Highlands Elementary School in the first grade in 1954. After going their separate ways for junior high and high school, Cary and Kathy reconnected on a blind date and married two months later in February 20, 1970. Cary graduated from Central High School in 1965, and joined the United States Navy. He was stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After the Navy, Cary worked for Shell Chemical Company until he retired in 2003. Cary is survived by his wife of 47 years, Mary Katherine "Kathy" Brown Bargas; his children and their spouses, Kara Bargas Dauterive and Paul of Dallas, TX , Jon Bargas and Royce of Oklahoma City, OK ; his grandchildren, Burke Thomas Dauterive, Brady Paul Dauterive and JT Bargas; his brothers and their wives, Gordon & Mimi Bargas and family of Baton Rouge, Rodney & Susan Bargas and family of Weatherford, TX; Alvin & Carlisa Bargas and family of Baton Rouge, Diana Bargas Peak and husband John of Shreveport, LA; sister and brother-in-law Marilyn Brown Causey Tillery and Fred Tillery; nieces & nephews, Boyd & Cheryl Cortez Causey of Zachary, LA, Rhonda Causey Myer, Rich, Christine & Thomas Myer of Baton Rouge, LA, Cassidy Causey of Charlotte, NC, Ronnie, Becca, Emerson and Landry Causey of Denver, CO, Bart, Rachel (Sullivan), Austin and Jackson Peak of Covington, LA, Lauren (Peak), Cy, Emily & Cy Scheffy of Shreveport, LA; and Neal Tillery and family of Houston, TX.
