Amos James “Jimmy” Broussard, 76, of Lake Charles, passed away Saturday, May 11, 2024, at a local hospice facility.  Jimmy was a native and lifelong resident of Lake Charles. He was born Oct. 28, 1947, to Loveless and Laura Broussard. He attended Lake Charles High School through his senior year then attended and graduated from LaGrange High School.

After high school he served his country in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Canberra during the Vietnam War.  Jimmy became an electrician and worked in the Lake Charles area and retired from Citcon after working there for 33 years.

Jimmy loved everything outdoors.  He was truly an “outdoorsy” kind of guy.  He loved spending his free time hunting, fishing, boating and golfing.  If there was something fun to do outside Jimmy was going to try it.  Jimmy made friends everywhere he went and will be remembered for his outgoing fun-loving personality.  Although he enjoyed the friendship of many people, he really enjoyed the guys in his afternoon “bar buddies” group.
