Known by many as Beaux, Dennis was born May 24, 1970, to Dennis and Sharon Jackson Gourdon in Baton Rouge. He passed away July 16, 2022, at the age of 52.
He honorably served as a Seabee in the United States Navy and was very proud of his patriotic duty.
He was a heavy equipment operator but was better known as a Jack-of-all-trades; there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, especially with his father, family and friends. He was “Coach Beaux” to many young men to whom he coached the game of football. He will be dearly missed by so many that loved him.
He is survived by his children, Lori Hunt and husband Martin Sr. and Jarrett Gourdon; a grandson, Martin Hunt Jr. (MJ); parents, Dennis Sr. and Sharon Gourdon; and brothers, Jeremy Gourdon and Timothy Gourdon; as well as many friends.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers include Timothy Gourdon, Martin Hunt Sr., Heath Blount, Tony Sullivan, Jamie Picou, Ronnie Romano, Scott Hendrickson and Charles Van Osdel.
