GENE C. FONTENOT SR.

Gene C. Fontenot Sr. was born on May 21, 1938 and left this world peacefully on April 19, 2008. Gene was a loving husband to his wife, Beverly, and a loving father to his children, Farrell, Carroll, Gene Jr., and Roger.  He also had a host of other family members.  Gene had many people he called friends.  If he knew you he considered you his friend.  Gene enjoyed his job as a police officer until the day of his retirement as a lieutenant.  After retiring he loved spending time with his family and friends and he enjoyed the Cajun culture.  He loved listening to different styles of music and playing his guitar.  He also loved to go fishing, crabbing, and watch football with his family for his past time.  Now that he is gone he will be missed by his family and all who knew him, but he is at peace now and in the hands of the Lord, and may he rest in peace forever.
