A L Brossett, Jr.

April 27, 1930 — April 13, 2022

Alcee L Brossett, Jr., better known as AL, was born April 27, 1930 in Mangham, Louisiana to Alcee L Brossett, Sr. and Nina Willard Brossett and passed away April 13, 2022 in The Woodlands, TX. AL grew up in Glenmora, Louisiana then moved with his family to Oakdale, Louisiana where he attended high school. He earned a music scholarship to McNeese State University; however, once he got to college, he dropped music in order to focus on his academic goals of becoming an engineer. After leaving college, he went on to spend 47 years as an engineer in the pulp and paper industry. His work was done all over the United States, Canada, and Europe for various companies, including Brown and Root, Southland Paper Company, Saint Regis, Champion, and IP. His successful career, which included numerous awards, allowed his family to travel with him to many parts of the world. In 1997, AL retired and built his dream home in Alexandria, Louisiana where he lived until recently moving to The Woodlands, Texas. AL was a strong Christian who strived to instill Christian values in his family. He was always an active church member, no matter where he was living. He served in various leadership roles within the churches he attended, such as deacon, treasurer, Sunday School teacher, choir member and always a friend to the pastors. His most recent church home was at St. Clair Baptist Church in Gardner, Louisiana. AL married the love of his life, Kayla Shaw Brossett on June 20, 1950 and remained married until his death. Together, they raised three children and left a legacy of grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was a caring family man who set a wonderful example of what it was to be a Christian and work hard. His utmost desire was that his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren be taken care of. He will be truly missed by the entire family. AL was preceded in death by his parents Alcee Brossett, Sr. and Nina Brossett; his brothers, James, Lutell, Wilfred, and Roland; his sister, Guynell; and his son, Stephen Randall Brossett. He is survived by his wife of 71 wonderful years, Kayla; his children, Karen Brossett Harris and Keith Brossett with wife Dawn; six grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; as well as nieces and nephews, too numerous to name. A graveside service will be held at Calvary Baptist Church Cemetery in Natchitoches, Louisiana on Saturday April 23 at 1:00 in the afternoon.
