Sweenie proudly served his country in the United States Army. He worked in the oilfield as a gauger. Sweenie loved hunting, fishing, watching sports, especially LSU, cooking suppers for his friends and speaking Cajun French. But most of all he loved spending time with his family.
Sweenie is survived by his two children, Adam Fruge of Rayne and Allison F. Creasman and husband, Chris of Lake Charles. He is also survived by the four joys of his life, his grandchildren, Eli and A. J. Fruge, Marley and Nico Duplechien: his siblings, Danny Fruge and wife, Gloria of Rayne and Lisa Fruge of Eunice. He also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss him. We will miss him every day.
