Jan Paul Bergeron
Napoleonville - Jan Paul Bergeron, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at his home in Napoleonville at the age of 84.
Jan was born and raised in Napoleonville, LA. Upon graduating from Assumption High School in 1955, he attended Louisiana State University and received a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering. After his service as an officer in the Army, he began his employment with Dow Chemical in Plaquemine, LA. In 1965, he chose to leave Dow to pursue a career in the sugar industry with Supreme Sugars as a chief engineer. His success in this industry led him to Glenwood Sugar Cooperative as general manager until his retirement in 2002, after spending 37 years in the sugar industry.
Jan was a devout Catholic and an active parishioner of St. Anne Catholic Church. He was a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus and a committed retreat master at Manresa. While raising a family, he enjoyed his annual vacations to the Gulf Coast, and in retirement, he enjoyed traveling extensively with his wife. He was a dedicated LSU football fan, loved golfing with family and friends, and enjoyed hunting and fishing with his boys.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 62 years, Sophie Fernandez Bergeron; children, Jan Bergeron, Jr. (Andre' Lamendola), Jill B. Waguespack (Mike), Troy Bergeron, and David Bergeron; grandchildren, Sarah W. Pemberton (Ford), Anne Marie W. Hebert (Rory), Michael Waguespack, Jr., Sophie Waguespack, Corinne Bergeron, Caroline Bergeron, and Grant Bergeron; great-grandchild, John Ford Pemberton; siblings, Sam Bergeron (Anne), Don Bergeron (Diane), Yvette B. Winston (Roy), and Dr. William Bergeron (Sandy); and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Sam W. Bergeron and Eva Hidalgo Bergeron.
The family would like to thank his caregivers, Jennifer Johnson, Celeste Hampton, Jennifer Truehill, Trulane Brown, Anne Thibodeaux, Tonja Williams, Lois Sawyer, Tanya Ballard, Connie Harvey, as well as Dr. Charles Bolotte, Dr. Charles Billings, Bayou Home Care, and Journey Home Hospice for their care and compassion during his illness.

Our sincere sympathy to the family for your loss. We are just learning of his death as we went to look up the obituary for someone else. We left for vacation on July 15th and were out of town until July 24th so I guess that is why we hadn't heard. Mr. Jan was such a positive figure in the community and always brought joy to anyone he interacted with. He will certainly be missed by many. No doubt he is looking down on all of you now and praying for everyone.
