Mr. Breaux was a remarkable person. A kind and fun-loving man, he generously gave to anyone that needed assistance. Well known as the hardest of workers, he never allowed the difficulty of any job to interfere with his goal of a successful result. He was a dedicated and loving family man, a loyal friend to many and always prepared to be a friend to everyone he met. We were blessed to become a part of his family through our daughter-in-law, Darlene. Along with his beloved children, grandchildren, and many friends, we will miss him.
