"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.

Dad worked for the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation as a road striper for 35 years. He painted many of miles over that period. When I’m driving down the road, and I’m feeling sad because he’s not with us anymore I will just look at those road stripes and think of him. I’ll even giggle when I see some that crooked and out of line and wonder “dad, did you do that?”. Dad was notorious for stopping on the side of the road and picking up items of all kinds. Back then it...
