Allard Martin Bourgeois passed away on Thursday, February 11, 2021 at the age of 83. A beloved father and husband, a man devoted to his family, a patriot, veteran, and faithful Catholic, who lived his life in service to others. He was a native of Brignac, LA and a resident of St. Amant, LA. Allard served over 20 years in the United States Air Force, raising a family of six children with his beloved wife, and retired honorably in 1977. He came back, temporarily stayed in the home he grew up in, built and established a new home, and continued providing for his family. While his grown children began their careers, he retired in 1995. He cared for his beloved wife through a long illness, losing her in 2007. Faithful to his wife even after her passing, he devoted himself to service to his community and church, becoming a member of Men of the Cross and numerous ministries. He visited his children as often as he could, remaining an integral part of their lives, always there to provide love and generous material support whenever needed. He was a storyteller, a kind spirit, a science-fiction movie buff, but most of all a devoted family-man, husband, and servant of God. He will be profoundly missed. He is survived by his sons, Lane Bourgeois (Kim), Scott Bourgeois (Brenda), Jon Bourgeois (Mary), Sean Bourgeois (Libina); daughters, Tina Comeaux, Deirdre Alexis (Jay); sisters, Iris Lambert, Gloria James; brother, Bernard Bourgeois; 17 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his loving wife of 48 years, Marie Margie Moran Bourgeois; sister, Rosemary Roberts (Robert); brothers, Clyde Bourgeois (Shirley), and Remi Bourgeois (Lorraine). Brothers-in-law, J.H. and Emmett. Sister-in-law, Leona Ann.

I knew Mr Allard from CF-LA Credit Union. He was the kindest, most devout Catholic and family man. He was lost when his wife, Marie died. I am happy he has joined her in heaven! He will be missed by all who knew him!
