He completed his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL) in Lafayette while married to the love of his life, Myra.  They were blessed to be happily married for 58 beautiful years.  
Throughout the years, Albert was known as coach to many in our community and neighboring towns. He had a love for rabbit hunting with his beagles, working in his garden and being Poppa on the sideline of many ball games.
He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Visits with family and friends were always welcomed and often times those visits led to sharing stories, telling jokes and reminiscing about the past.  
He retired from the Avoyelles Parish School System as a speech pathologist serving students throughout the parish for 33 years.  
 
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Myra Gremillion of Plaucheville; daughters, Holli (Jamie) McCaleb of Plaucheville, Teri (Benny) Broussard of Crowley, Jodi (Ken) Stansbury of Youngsville. He is also survived by 7 grandchildren.

Pallbearers will be his grandchildren: Karli McCaleb, Pate Broussard, Alex McCaleb, Ben Broussard, Sophia Velotta, Ashlyn Stansbury & Hudson Velotta.
