Mason Broussard left this earth for his reward April 30, 2021 from Colorado Springs. He was born August 6, 1932 to Roy Broussard and Flavia (Reed) Broussard.
Mason is survived by his two children, Kerry Lynn LeBleu of Parker Colorado, Shannon Lebleu (granddaughter) Matthew LeBleu (grandson) Emmalane (great-granddaughter) and Amy Renee McClelland (Charles McClelland) Jacob McClelland (grandson) Joel McClelland (grandson) Malakai McClelland (great-grandson) and Joshua Harrison. He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy & Flavia; and his siblings, Stanford, Joyce Curtis, Phelia Smith and Stanly Paul.
Mason was an active member of the church of Christ his whole life; most recently he attended the Lakeside congregation in Colorado Springs.
He was married to Sheryl Dianne Richardson January 30, 1955
After their marriage, Mason joined the army and served as a medic at Walter Reed Hospital for 2 years.
He retired from the freight industry and loved to tell stories about the time he spent working for the Mason Dixon truck line. He was a dock worker and was meticulous about his work. The truckers who knew that he had loaded their trucks always knew that it was loaded well and that they would have no issues on the road due to an unevenly loaded trailer.
Mason enjoyed the outdoors. His favorite past times were hunting, camping or just sitting on the back porch at either of his daughter’s homes listening to the birds sing and watching wildlife.
He loved his home state of Louisiana and would often tell stories of his childhood and the various scrapes and shenanigans that he and his friends would get in to. He took frequent trips back to Louisiana over the years to visit family and friends. Later in life he would go to his camp in Louisiana for extended periods of time for as long as his health would allow.
He and Sheryl moved from Indiana to Colorado in the early 1990s to be closer to their daughters who both live there. He enjoyed the mountains and would go hunting for big game with his sons-in-law and nephews and friends every hunting season. He was often the camp cook and the hunters would look forward to his Cajun cuisine.
A small graveside service and interment will be at the Pikes Peak National Cemetery
