Pichon, Gerald

May 5, 1970 – September 25, 2021

Gerald E. Pichon, 51, of Husser, LA passed away peacefully Saturday September 25, 2021, at North Oaks Medical in Center in Hammond, LA. Gerald is survived by his wife Tamara Pichon; their 4 children Trey Pichon & girlfriend Hannah Williams, Jason Vickers, wife Amanda & daughter Alyssa Vickers; Brandi Doss, husband Johnny & daughter Jordyn Doss; Tyler Vickers; mother Doris Donaghey; brother Gerard Pichon Jr., wife Sheri, daughter Kayla & Robby Grisenthwaite, Kaitlyn, & Austin; Mother in law Lana Alford; countless cousins, extend family and friends, and so many friends that became family. He is proceeded in death by with Grandfather Edward Donaghey; Father Gerard Pichon Sr; 2 Father-in-laws Grady Ridgedell, and Darrell Nash. Gerald was a Superintendent/Crane Operator with Mammoet, in St. Gabriel. Gerald has been a heavy machine operator since he was 17. Clyde Ewing gave him a chance at only 17 years old and he never looked back. Clyde was the father Gerald never truly had. Gerald was a devoted father, husband, son, and friend. He never hesitated to help someone out with just about anything. He never met a stranger; he was kind to everyone. Him and his wife Tamara built a beautiful life together full of fun, adventure, love, and they were the best of friends. They took spontaneous trips at the drop of the hat, and it was nothing for them to head out on a “road trip” to   Tennessee just to get BBQ for dinner. Always looking for neat rocks to outdo each other’s finds along their travels. They successfully raised 4 children that have grown into wonderful adults. He was always there to lend a helping hand, give advice to see that they stayed on the best path possible. He made sure that his children and granddaughters had every opportunity they needed or wanted to achieve that was available to them from everyday needs to the big things. He will be deeply missed by so many. The family wants to extend their gratitude to their Mammoet family, who have been here through every step of this. Truly showing the meaning of extending work FAMILY. Our Husser neighbors, who have welcomed us as family since day one, making sure Tamara was checked in on and attended to any needs she may have/need. The LPSB Transportation School Bus Operators/staff/etc. for all the calls, text, or visits.  The REMAX Select Hammond Family and friends for all their support. All the friends and family that have offered a helping hand, shoulder to cry on, a meal, call, text or visit. The staff at North Oaks Medical Center ICU Unit/step-down unit in Hammond, LA. Gerald was never a number or just another patient to any doctor or nurse. The compassion and effort you all took while caring for him is appreciated more than words can say. We are forever grateful for all your presence, love, and support through this time. To honor Gerald’s wishes a funeral will not be held. The family will be having a celebration of life at later date to honor the life of Gerald the way he would have intended. In lieu of flowers donations are being accepted to go towards medical bills accrued through the weeks Gerald spent in the hospital ICU/Step-down unit.

    Gerald was such an honest, caring man. Upon meeting him you knew what a good person he was. I only knew him a short time but Clyde considered him a son. The stories and laughter they shared will not be forgotten. The weekly phone call from work to Husser will be missed. Words can not express just how greatly missed he will be. We have a special place in our heart and prayers for Tamara and her family. ❤️

    Our prayers are with Trey, Tamara and the family. We knew Gerald for a short while, but he brought smiles to those around him and certainly loved his family. He will be missed.

    Even though I hadn’t seen Mrs. Tamara or Mr. Gerald in many years, some of the fondest memories I have are from when I was young and would spend the night with Brandi. Mr. Gerald was always so sweet and treated Mrs. Tamara like she walked on water. I remember when she first met him and the smile that never left her face. I am truly sorry for this loss. I pray for healing for everyone and that you all will find peace. He will be missed but all that he has done will live on. See you later Mr. Gerald.

    To a man that would lend a helping hand to anyone. Gerald and Tamera are some of the nicest people I have ever come to know. We’ve only known them for a short 6 years but in that time they made you feel apart of their family. He will be missed by so many and it saddens me to know he’s gone but never forgotten. RIP Gerald,fly high my friend.
