Larry Paul Bergeron, 77, a resident of Morgan City, went home to his Lord and Savior on Friday, November 23, 2018.
Larry was born Christmas day, 1940, in Morgan City, the son of Roy Bergeron, Sr. and Inez Babin Bergeron.
Larry was a huge part of his community. He was passionate about helping others, and this was evident in all aspects of his life. Larry was the previous owner of Bergeron Marble and Granite Works, as well as a board member for the Shrimp and Petroleum Festival for many years. He also served as a deputy assessor for the St. Mary Parish assessor’s office. Larry was also a proud parishioner of Sacred Heart Church and was one of the recipients for the 2018 Diocesan Service Award for Sacred Heart Parish. He was a committed Eucharistic minister, lector and alter server. He served previously as the city administrator and as a councilman for the city of Morgan City. He most recently served as a Funeral Director at Twin City Funeral Home and as the master of ceremonies for the Krewe of Dionysus. Larry was a hard-working, God-serving man who never knew a stranger. Larry helped people his entire life, and he would continue to help people after his passing by donating his body to the Bureau of Anatomical Services at LSU Health Sciences Center. He will be missed immensely by every person who knew him, which includes his beautiful family, his friends and his coworkers.
