"More Than 125 Years Of Time Honored Values"

EST. 1889

A Family Concern

In the late 1800's, Alex Broussard, owner of A. Broussard Livery Stable, opened the first funeral parlor in Southeast Texas. That first wood framed parlor was soon replaced by a large brick facility in downtown Beaumont which still stands today. Later, the family firm moved to a large, stately home at the corner of Calder Avenue and Forest Street. In 1958, they moved to one of their present locations in a quiet neighborhood on McFaddin in Beaumont.

Continuing Our Traditions

In this age of constant corporate funeral home buyouts and takeovers, families find comfort in knowing there is still a family owned and operated firm with five generations of compassion, continuity, and dignity. The Broussard family feels strongly about their traditions and their family's obligation to maintain both the high standards of excellence in service and their ability to serve the entire community by always keeping their services affordable.

Thomas McCord

Thomas “Tommy” McCord, 28, of Austin, formerly of Orange, died Wednesday, June 13, 2018. He was born on August 28, 1989, in Houston, to Maryann Loretta McCord. Tommy was a software sales executive. The world lost Tommy far too soon. Those who were fortunate enough to know Tommy, understand how great the loss. The world is certainly less sweet than it was before. He had a smile that could light up a room and a personality to match. Friendship wasn’t something to be taken lightly for Tommy and many of you meant the world to him. The Gallier family was fortunate that Tommy adopted them almost 14 years ago. They are forever grateful that Tommy blessed their life. Tommy’s fiancée and love, Lexi, as well as countless family and friends are in our thoughts and on our heavy hearts. Today we mourn the loss and at the same time celebrate his life and the lasting impact it had has on so many. Tommy is survived by his fiancée, Alexis Delgado; his adoptive fa...
