Milton Trahan

April 15, 1934 - December 23, 2020

Milton Trahan, 86, of Winnie, died Wednesday, December 23, 2020. He was born on April 15, 1934 in Lake Arthur, Louisiana to Margaret LeBlanc Trahan and Gabriel Trahan, and had been a resident of the Winnie area for most of his life.

Milton helped to raise his siblings after his mother passed in child-birth. He worked hard as a welder for most of his life. He passed on his trade to his son, grandsons and many others. His bar, Milton’s Place in Stowell, became like a second home to his family and many people in the community. Any given Sunday, Milton could be found out back barbequing, boiling crawfish, or frying fish. Milton loved to play pranks on his kids, grandkids and anyone of which he came into contact. This was evidenced by the quarter glued to the floor in front of the pool table quarter slot at Milton’s place. He liked being silly and making the little kids laugh … or CRY. He was such a loving Dad. His love for family rang true at every gathering as everyone was always welcome. A smile was given freely to grandbabies who sat on his knee and Christmas and Easter were a family staple for great get togethers. He was true to his word and expected others to be as well. He taught his children responsibility and manners at an early age. He spared the rod and spoiled the child when it came to his children by welding swing sets, seesaws and fort towers where his kids had many China ball wars. Always a hard worker. He accomplished much in his life as a welder, business owner, husband, father and grandfather. His legacy of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will live on to honor him. We know he is in heaven feasting on strawberry ice cream and pineapple upside down cake.

Mr. Trahan is survived by his children: Pam Creduer Bryant and her husband, Gary, of Kountze; Jeffery James Trahan and his wife, Carey, of Grapeland; Debra Kay Trahan and her partner, Victor Pierce, of Hamshire; Beverly Ann Frugia and her husband, Dicky, of Winnie; Susan Ada Trahan, of Winnie; and Troyette Marr and her husband, Wayne, of Santa Fe; 17 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, and sisters, Marion Hoffpauir and her husband, Tootie, of Winnie, and Beatrice LeJune, of Nederland.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Ruby Trahan; step-son, Ron Crump; parents, Gabriel and Margaret Trahan; sisters, Elia Abshire, Rita Williams, Margaret Ann Broussard; and brother, Nelson Lee Trahan.

A gathering of Mr. Trahan’s family and friends will begin at 2:00 p.m., with his funeral service to follow at 3:00 p.m., Saturday, December 26, 2020, at Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont. His interment will follow at Fairview Cemetery, Winnie.
