Charles Ray Bergeron Obituary
Charles Ray "Buddy" Bergeron, born August 7, 1927, passed away in a boating accident on March 20, 2014 at the age of 86.

He was a native of Opelousas, LA., and a resident of Baton Rouge, LA. He was a beloved husband, father and friend to many; he will be greatly missed. He was a man of remarkable ability. He served in the Navy following WWII. He retired from Ethyl Corp in Baton Rouge after 37 years as a chemical engineer. He held many patents and was responsible for developing a process for growing silicon crystals for computers. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and a teller of tall tales. He never knew a stranger and was an excellent cook.

He was preceded in death by parents Hervin and Elise Bergeron, sons Anthony Ray and Paul Astor. He is survived by his wife of 66 years Lillian Mae (Doucet) of Opelousas; son Dr. Robert Charles and daughter-in-law Deanna of Denison, TX; daughter Janet Elizabeth Brumfield and son-in-law David Brumfield of Baton Rouge; grandchildren Sarah and Dustin Bergeron, Melissa Barker and husband Larry, and Lauren Waldrop; great-grandson Nathaniel Barker; brothers Lyle Bergeron, Lanny Bergeron and sisters Elise Olsen and Deretta Manuel. Granddaughter Melissa said, "Mom, he was trying to take his boat to heaven."
