Allen Bernard Carmouche Sr.

31 January, 193429 March, 2020

Allen Bernard Carmouche, Sr. passed away at the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Home in Reserve, LA on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at the age of 86. Allen is the loving husband of 64 years to Dolores Bergeron Carmouche, father of Allen Carmouche, Jr., father-in Law of Jinny Peters Carmouche and Paw to his granddaughter, Jenna Carmouche. Allen was born on January 31, 1934 in St. Rose, LA to his parents, Fulgence Carmouche of Paulina and Anna Simon Carmouche of Vacherie. Allen is survived by his siblings Beulah Carmouche, Ethel Carmouche Mancuso, James Carmouche, Harry Carmouche, Sr., Don Carmouche and countless nieces, nephews and cousins. He is preceded in death by his siblings Annette Carmouche, Rene Carmouche, Sr., Earl Carmouche, Irvin Carmouche, Sr., Herbert Carmouche and Emmett Carmouche. Allen graduated from Destrehan High School in 1953. Soon after marrying Dolores in 1955, Allen joined the Army as a Military Policeman and was stationed at Fort Bliss in El Paso, TX. Upon receiving honorable discharge in 1958, Allen and Dolores returned to St. Rose and began working for Shell Refinery. During the strike in the late 50’s Allen attended Delgado Community College for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, opening Carmouche Roofing & Sheetmetal shortly thereafter with his brother and sidekick, Harry. Over the next 40+ years their business evolved into Carmouche Heating & Air Conditioning, affording them the opportunity to touch countless lives in the community. Whether he was assisting in the startup of St. Rose’s Volunteer Fire Department, serving as a Deputy to Sheriff John St. Amant, cutting grass for a neighbor in need or dropping everything to fix an A/C for the elderly, Allen was always putting others first. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends in the outdoors, especially making memories at the family fishing camp in Cocodrie. He was a founding member of Bayou Traverse Hunting Club where he enjoyed hunting ducks, alligators and frogs in the LaBranche Wetlands. Although he was not a man of many words, his quick wit and sly one-liners made him a true joy to be around. The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the staff of Southeast Louisiana Veterans Home, to the St. Charles Council on Aging, to Compassus Palliative Care, and to his dedicated sitters, Jessie Maxon, Shannon Maxon, Edna Richardson, Michelle Curly and Ava Palmisano, for their kindness and loving care. A special thank you to the many neighbors and friends who’s help and support is greatly appreciated. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association Louisiana Chapter. The family is honoring current national precaution requirements and will schedule a memorial service in the upcoming months. Condolences may be expressed at www.hcalexanderfuneralhome.com.

Dolores & Allen, Jr. - My sincere sympathy for the death of Allen.
When we first built our house in Destrehan in 1962, Allen's company put in our first a/c for me and my husband, Raoul.
Good memories.

Mr. Allen was one of the most kind people I know. Not only was he a large part of Saint Rose , Saint Rose was a part of him. He always treated everyone like family. He will be dearly missed.

Allen, I know your hurting, but remember your dad was a wonderful person. Smiles and always, ALWAYS ready to help anyone out! I spent hours talking to him and Harry in front of the shop with a cold one, the stories I heard!
Heaven gained another Cajun ready to help as always.
Prayers for you, your family and Mrs. Dolores.

Allen was such a wonderful person. Never did he meet you that he didn’t smile. He would talk to you if you wanted and he never got tired of telling us how much it meant to him to have Tony around when he was growing up. He didn’t have an easy life but God will reward him. Wish we could share this time with you but there is a reason for everything. Tell Dolores we are thinking of her and all of you God Bless Harry as he must be lost without his counterpart. Love to all of you.
