Timothy Lynn Broussard
Tim Broussard, 64, of Beaumont, died Tuesday, September 28, 2021. He was born on January 4, 1957, in Beaumont, to Dorothy and J. P. Broussard, Jr.
Tim was dearly loved by his family and a vast circle of longtime Beaumont friends. We all have fond memories of Tim growing up – he loved to garden and grow green beans at his grandparents’ house, hunting trips, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter lunches, family reunions at the farm, family vacations, even working cattle with his cousins Jim and Paul. Seeing his nieces and nephews at family events was the highlight of his day-dying Easter eggs, handing out dollar bills, and a kind gesture to each one of them.
Tim loved the outdoors. During high school, he developed a strong interest in agriculture where he was very active in the Future Farmers of America (FFA) program. He would continue his support for the program even after graduation where he attended FFA banquets and helped to raise money by selling fruit.
Immediately following his 1976 graduation from Forest Park High School he took his first and only job as a mill associate with the Beaumont Rice Mill. Tim was very proud of the Rice Mill, and his forty-five years there was a testament to good work he did there alongside his fellow family members who included Asa Hamshire, Buddy Broussard, and J.P. Broussard, Jr. and his maternal grandfather, E.C. Thallman.
He enjoyed frequent trips to the farm, and spending the night there, and relaxing rides on the tractor where he was most at peace mowing a field of grass. He also enjoyed daily trips in his truck where he would pop in on friends or drop a fishing line in LaBelle. He enjoyed visiting with his Market Basket Coffee Club friends and catching up on the local news. Tim also served as his mom’s longtime roommate and dependable companion.
Survivors include his siblings, Cindy Rod and her husband, Edward; Marsha Broussard; Presley Broussard and his wife, Cynthia; and Scott Broussard and his wife, Amy; nieces and nephews, Jennifer Rod LaBorde and her husband, Brent; Keli Rod Neal and her husband, Lane; Sara Rod Becker and her husband Garrett; Jayme Broussard Abshier and her husband, Todd; Hilary Broussard; Matthew Broussard; and Abby Broussard; great-nieces and nephews, Laurel LaBorde, Carson LaBorde, Peyton Neal, Hudson Neal, Sadie Becker, Foster Abshier, and Ellis Abshier; his favorite aunt, Bonnie Boles of San Antonio; and numerous cousins and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Dorothy and J.P. Broussard, Jr.; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Mrs. J. P. Broussard, Sr. and Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Thallman; and nephew, Cory Edward Rod.
