GEORGE W. RESWEBER

ST. MARTINVILLE – A Mass of Christian Burial will be conducted for George William Resweber, age 77, at 11:00 am on Monday, February 10, 2020 at St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church with Fr. Ed Degeyter officiating. Following the mass, Mr. Resweber will be laid to rest at St. Michael’s Mausoleum.

A gathering of family and friends will be held at Evangeline Funeral Home on Sunday from 3:00 pm until 8:00 pm, with the Rosary being prayed at 6:00 pm. Visiting hours will resume on Monday at 8:00 am until 10:30 am.

George passed away peacefully after a lengthy illness on February 5, 2020 at his residence surrounded by his family.

George, a native of St. Martinville, LA, spent his entire adult life as a public servant. He proudly served his country in the Louisiana National Guard and was honorably discharged. He retired from the St. Martinville Police Department after more than 40 years of service, where he protected the community in a variety of roles. After his retirement, he continued to watch over the public safety of hundreds of school children daily as a school crossing guard at St. Martinville Primary for the City of St. Martinville.

George was dedicated to the family he built with his beloved wife of 54 years, Judy C. Resweber of St. Martinville. Together, they had three children – Dean Resweber and his wife Cheryl of Thornton, CO; Jerrod Resweber of Dallas, TX and Stacey R. Dugas and her husband Kyle of St. Martinville, LA. He was blessed with four grandchildren – Trent Resweber, Dylan Boutte and Ethan Dugas and Greyson Dugas, all of St. Martinville, LA.

George had a love for the outdoors. He was an avid hunter, and he enjoyed taking his wife on fishing trips. He and his wife also belonged to an RV camping club based in Butte La Rose, LA, for many years where they made many friendships. With his passion for camping in an RV, he took his family on many vacations across several states. He could also be found passionately cheering for the LSU Tigers and the New Orleans Saints on weekends during football season.

The family would like to offer special thanks to the staff of Bridgeway Healthcare and Hospice for the years invested in assisting his wife in caring for George during his illness. Acknowledgments go to Bridgeway team members Erin, Holly, Lorene, Ashley, Carleese, Raquita, Sam and Danisia, and to childhood friend Father Ed Degeyter and Lucille Theriot and Adley Douet for proving their spiritual services.

He is preceded in death by his father George Resweber, mother Janice B. Resweber and his only brother Robert “Bobby” Resweber.

Members of the St. Martinville Police Department will be serving as pallbearers and performing honor guard duties during the funeral service. Honorary pallbearers will include family and close friends: Dean Resweber, Jerrod Resweber, Trent Resweber, Dylan Boutte, Ethan Dugas, Greyson Dugas, Kyle Dugas, Dale Vincent, Michael “Mike” Legendre, Louis Durand, Alfred “Dickie” Touchet, Ben Breaux, Robert “Bob” Wardlaw and Kenneth Blanchard.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations are made in George’s memory to the National Alzheimer’s Association or Bridgeway Healthcare and Hospice.

Dear Judy and family,

Please know that George and all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. We regret not be able to visit with all of you at his memorial. We have many fond memories of George, you, and the family members that we were fortunate enough to know.

I fondly recall the many JPT Christmas parties when Judy and "Mr. George" (as I called him would show up on time, not early, not fashionably late, but on time. I would always go over to mess with Mrs. Judy and get in a deep discussion with Mr. George. Although sometimes they would look at me intensely, no one ever said "You are crazy" - even though I was!

Judy, you have more years of memories than most people ever have - so dwell on the good ones. It will see you through in these trying times.
