A Celebration of Life will be celebrated at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at Ardoin's Funeral Home Chapel in Eunice. Burial will follow in the Mt. Calvary Cemetery with Deacon David Guillory officiating.

A proud veteran, Hugh served in the United States National Guard. He was a painter for over 50 years and over twenty of these years was with Ardoin's Funeral Homes, Sibille Funeral Homes and Lafond Ardoin Funeral Homes. He was a wonderful person and will be remembered for his gentle soul and a caring person who was loved by everyone who knew him. He enjoyed gardening, fishing, hunting and especially time spent with his grandchildren who were the apple of his eyes. Hugh will also be remembered as a wonderful husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. Left to cherish his memory is his loving and devoted wife of 45 years, Loretta "Flo" Bertrand of Eunice. His loving daughter and son-in-law, Kim B. Gaspard and husband Robert of Eunice; his two precious grandchildren, Michael and Lindsey Gaspard. He is also survived by his sister, Della Fontenot of Basile; as well as loving nieces, nephews extended family and dear friends. "The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained"

He is preceded in death by his parents, Linzy and Vinus LaFleur Bertrand; sister, Virginia B. Bellon; two infant brothers and a brother-in-law, Abney Fontenot. "While we are mourning the loss of a loved one, others are rejoicing to greet him."
