Carroll R. “Bobby” Bertaut III, 83, a resident of Morgan City, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, July 2, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.
Bobby was born on March 26, 1938 in New Orleans, the son of Carroll R. Bertaut Jr. and Catherine Hidalgo Bertaut.
Bobby was in the oilfield working many years with Kerr-McGee before starting his own company, Bertaut Inspection Services. Bobby’s main passion in life was being in the outdoors, out in the boat with a line in the water, trying to catch that big bass or redfish. He had a love for people and a deep unyielding faith, who never missed an opportunity to interact with family, friends or even strangers.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 61years Evelina “Evie” Tassin Bertaut of Morgan City; five children, Michael Robert Bertaut and wife Marla of Prairieville, Carol Anne Schaub and husband Paul of Bayou Vista, Donna Bordelon and husband Patrick of Powder Springs, Georgia, Ronald Paul Bertaut and wife Kathryn of McKinney, Texas, Chris Bryan Bertaut and companion Debbie Mura of Gonzales, six grandchildren, Melissa Hanson, Morgan Bordelon, Josh Schaub, William Bertaut, Patrick Bordelon Jr. and Abby Bertaut.
Bobby was preceded in death by his parents and one grandson, Stephen Schaub.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, July 5, 2021 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with a visitation being held from 9:30 a.m. until Mass time. Father Freddie Decal will celebrate Mass. Following Mass, Bobby will be laid to rest in the Morgan City Cemetery Mausoleum.
