Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil for God is with me. Psalm 23. Peter “Pete” Bernath, a life-long resident of Denham Springs, LA, died unexpectedly on Sunday evening, October 25, 2020 at the age of 43 in Baton Rouge, LA. Peter is survived by his twin boys, Luke and Logan Bernath; Frank Bernath and Jan Broussard Bernath (brother and spouse); Tammy Bernath Jeansonne and Chester “Dee” Jeansonne (sister and spouse); Mark Bernath (brother); Paul Bernath and Amy Kerr Bernath (twin brother and spouse); Steven Bernath (uncle); Casey Jeansonne, Mason Jeansonne, Ashton Jeansonne, Ryan Bernath, Brandt Bernath, Eian Bernath, Carson Bernath, and Jaxson Bernath (nephews); Kamryn Bernath (niece); as well as many other friends and family. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Warren and Ruth Wheeler and Nicholas and Esther Bernath; his father, Frank Bernath Sr.; and his mother, Carol Bernath. Peter was born in Baton Rouge, LA on March 17, 1977 to Frank and Carol Bernath. He attended Denham Springs High School and worked in sales and construction. He welcomed his twin boys, Luke and Logan, on December 9, 2016, who were the love and light of his life. Peter was a beloved father, brother, and friend who had the biggest heart and would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. He enjoyed movies, especially horror movies, as well as sports. He was an avid follower of the LSU Tigers, New Orleans Saints, Houston Astros, and the Chicago Bulls. He loved his music, traveling, and being outdoors, but what he cherished the most was his time spent with family and friends. He found joy in counseling people who were dealing with addiction and using his past experiences to make a difference in someone else’s life. He was a member of Hebron Baptist Church. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him. Visitation will begin at 2:00 p.m. until Celebration of Life service at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 1 at Hebron Baptist Church, 24063 LA Hwy. 16, Denham Springs, LA.

I am with God in Spirit I am here….I kept the faith, my spirit is light. I am at peace now…I fought the good fight….” ~ Valerie Sampson.
