John Charles Falgout Sr., 71, a resident of Berwick, passed away peacefully, Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at his home.
John was born September 24, 1948, in Morgan City, the son of Dudley Charles Falgout and Anna Bergeron Falgout.
John was an anchor captain for almost 50 years; he enjoyed every minute of his career and made it a top priority in his life. John was an outdoorsman; before becoming a captain, he would shrimp with his father. His father served in the military and John was very proud of him, keeping all of his medallions and mementos. Being a very patriotic person, John loved flags, eagles, and anything to do with the military; he would also donate money to any foundation that supported the military. He was a very giving man when it came to things that he was passionate about, including organizations and foundations. Being a father and grandfather ran a tight race with being an anchor captain; John enjoyed spending all of his spare time with his grandchildren, which he was very proud of.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Cathy Johnson Falgout of Berwick; son, John Falgout Jr. and wife Brooke of Berwick; two daughters, Melanie Liles and husband Dewayne of Florida, Deidre Look and husband Michael of Patterson; two step-daughters, Rogena Hartley and husband Ricky of Morgan City, Wendy Price and husband Glynn of Mississippi; one brother, Anthony Falgout and wife Toni of Washington, LA; one sister, Grace Fox of San Leon, Texas; 18 grandchildren, Nicole Boudreaux and husband Jefferey, Dreu and fiancé Jonathan “J.T.” Thomas, Kayla, Chloe, Isabella, Emma, and Sophia Falgout; Joseph and Jacob Coleman, Adam and Grace Chaisson; Ben Lasseigne, Kennedi and Brannon Look; Hannah and Khairick Hartley; Glynn Jr. and Nicolas Price; three great-grandchildren, Eleanor “Nora” and Ford Boudreaux, Adrienne Thomas.
John was preceded in death by his parents, Dudley and Anna Falgout; sister, Elizabeth Dineen; brother-in-law, Mark Fox.
