Charles Clarence Bourque, Sr., age 90, a native of Opelousas, long time resident of Harahan, and more recently a resident of Houma, Louisiana, peacefully passed away on July 5, 2022.



Charlie was a loyal brother, father, grandfather, and friend.  Charlie served in the United States Marine Corps and received his Bachelor of Science from Southwestern Louisiana Institute, now University of Louisiana, Lafayette.  After working for several years with Shell Oil, he began a successful thirty-five plus year career in pharmaceutical sales.  Upon retirement Charlie spent his time traveling, and Cajun dancing at Tipitinas on Sunday afternoons and Rock-n-Bowl on Wednesday nights.

Bourque, Jr. (Julia) of Houma, Louisiana; daughter, Jeanne Marie Bourque of Lafayette, Louisiana; and three granddaughters and one grandson, Remanjon Bourque, Alivia Doolin, Charles C. Bourque, III and Isabella Bourque. Charlie is also survived by his sisters, Gwen Jenkins, Agnes Byrom and Norma Magnon.

He was preceded in death by his parents Clarence and Effie Bourque, and daughter Michelle Anne Bourque.
