Alan Andrew “Rock” Breaux Sr.
November 12, 1951 — March 26, 2013
Alan Andrew “Rock” Breaux Sr., a resident of Morgan City, was carried home Tuesday, March 26, 2013, by our Lord’s angels. He was born and raised in Amelia by his parents Lynwood and Joan Cooper Breaux.
He met Barbara J. LeBoeuf in eighth grade and then on April 8, 1972, married his high school sweetheart and soul mate. Alan was a devoted and compassionate friend and husband to Barbara for 48 years.
Together they had two children, Michelle and Alan, and he was the greatest daddy a child could have ever dreamed of having. He was truly a role model.
He is survived by his loving wife, Barbara L. Breaux; daughter, Michelle Breaux Stansbury and son-in-law, Jack Stansbury Jr.; and son, Alan A. Breaux and daughter-in-law, Heather Herman Breaux.
His greatest pride was his grandchildren. He loved each and every one equally, completely and unconditionally. His grandkids, Ashlyn Reaux, Caitlyn Reaux, Kayla Stansbury-Dice, Katherine “Katie” Stansbury, Jacob Andrew Stansbury, Joshua Alan Stansbury, Ali Breaux, Payton Andrew Breaux, Molli Breaux and Eli John Breaux will forever have a guardian angel; and his 14-year-old, four-legged companion and best buddy, Paco, will be lost without him.
He is also survived by his sisters, Judy (Sonny) Pennison and Lynn Marie Pierron; brothers-in-law, Jimmy (Cheryl) LeBoeuf, Tommy LeBoeuf and Douglas Aucoin; sisters-in-law, Madge (Terry) LaCoste, Elizabeth “Lou” Leedom and Shirley LeBoeuf; along with a host of nieces and nephews, including 13 godchildren and many who looked to him as Papa Alan.
He was preceded in death by his parents; grandparents; two sisters, Theresa Williams and Ruth Aucoin; brothers-in-law, Perry Williams, Raymond LeBoeuf and Dan Leedom; nephew, Vince Pennison; and nieces, Danielle Pennison and Victoria Leedom.
He was a proud and loving family man. He was not only a husband, daddy, and papa, but a best friend to all of us. He was truly a hero in our eyes. He was a selfless, great-hearted person who never met a stranger. He took great pride in the American Cancer Society and enjoyed helping others.
One of his greatest adventures was a trip to his mother’s homeland of Chestershire, England, with his mom and sisters.
He loved his family and friends! He loved to eat and loved gatherings of any kind! He loved to be in the boat, fishing, hunting, and being at the camp.
Our Dad has touched many lives and will be missed so very much, but he is now home in God’s Kingdom and will forever watch down on us with a perfect heart. To know him was to love him, and to be loved by him was a true blessing.
Visitation will be Thursday, March 28, 2013, at Twin City Funeral Home in Morgan City from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. with a Special Celebration of Life Service by Pastor Terrell Reed at 6 p.m.
Our family would like to thank the medical staff at Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center in Houma and Thibodaux Regional Medical Center for taking such great care of our loved one.
Although Alan was a simple man with a simple life, he left behind many treasures and gifts that will carry on forever.
He requested that the service be very casual dress.
