Although he was born in Jennings, Mr. LeGros spent most of his life as a resident of the Milton/Scott area. Mr. LeGros was well known throughout the communities of Lake Arthur, Jennings and Scott as someone who loved to sing and had a beautiful voice. In fact, his friends call him “Pipes.” He was a cantor in the church, a member of the Lake Arthur Coalition, RCIA program, Acadiana High School Band Members and a member of DJR Karaoke group.

Although he enjoyed singing, his first priority was his relationship with God; he was very strong in his faith and served as an excellent example to all. His children and grandchildren were very special to him and a great joy in his life.

Mr. LeGros was a gemologist with a long career in the jewelry business, with jewelry stores in the Lafayette area.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Debbie LeGros; daughter, Hillary (Hunter) Perry of Lafayette; son, Luke (Emily) LeGros of Lafayette; sister, Ramona (Ronald) Quebedeaux of Jennings; brothers, Roland (Roxanne) LeGros and Calvin LeGros, all of Jennings; and four very precious grandchildren, Carley, Victoria, Aubrey and Noah LeGros.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Perry Joseph and Martha Mae Martin LeGros; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Curley and Eula Mae Broussard Courts; and a daughter, Baby LeGros.

Carrying Mr. LeGros to his rest will be pallbearers Luke LeGros, Hunter Perry, Paul Courts, Rory Quebedeaux, Rob Tierney, Randal Menard, Joe Courts and Johnathon Courts.
