Dear Aunt Jean and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you say goodbye to your beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend. I know he is with God and has joined the saints in his glorious reward. He is truly flying in the great blue yonder. I cannot be with you in person on Saturday but will be there in my spirit. All my love, Evie

I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Jimmy. I was one of the younger cousins so I don’t have all the memories of some of my older cousins. But I do remember Uncle Jimmy to be a kind and gentle soul. Every time I did get to visit with him he always had a genuine smile and interest in how we were doing. Aunt Jean, his boys and their families are in our prayers. Love to all. Dionne and Bill Parker

May the friends and family of Mr. Orgeron find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

I have such wonderful memories of Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Jean. The love they shared and the family they created are the standard I tried to reach. I remember Uncle Jimmy playing baseball with Jimmy and me in their front yard across the road from my home in Lafayette — a long time ago. I also remember Uncle Jimmy flying over the pasture in Granpa and Grandma’s house in the country. I will never forget him racing to get ahead us after we left Slidell to ensure our second son, Taylor, would not be without his “security” blanket. I am so happy that Joe Ed and I were able to spend an hour with him in the hotel during the reunion in Broussard. As tears form in my eyes, I realize that I was blessed to have known him and his family. John and Camille Johnston

We are so sorry to hear about the news of Uncle Jimmy. I have very fond memories of staying at their house in Slidell with the boys when we were kids.

James Jules Orgeron, 92, passed away Monday, June 25, 2018 after a long happy and well lived life. Jim was born July 1, 1925 in Blanks, Louisiana. He spent his early years on the family dairy farm and was very proud of his Cajun heritage. He answered the countrie’s call and served in WWII as a pilot. He later turned his love for flying into a life long career. He met Erma Jean Orgeron, the love of his life, while stationed in Nebraska. Their 72 year marriage provided a loving environment for their 4 boys. Jim had a long career as a corporate pilot for McDermott in New Orleans, LA. He started as a crop duster and then flew Widgens and was promoted to corporate jets. Jim and Jean spent most of their lives in the New Orleans area but moved to Savannah as Katrina hurricane refugees. They were quickly embraced by Savannah and really enjoyed the 12 years they have lived here.

Jim is survived by his wife Erma Jean and 4 sons, James Jr. (Lois) of Baton Rouge, LA, Jay (Linda) of York, PA, Jerry (Patrick) of Sacramento, CA, and Jon (Karen) of Savannah, GA. Jim was blessed with 8 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.

Jim would like to be remembered as one who loved life, flying, and most of all, his family.

A Memorial Mass will be 12:30 p.m., Saturday, June 30, 2018 at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church.

A reception will follow the service in the parish center.

Remembrances may be made to St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church.
