|39305||Vernon T. Bolleter died peacefully November 30th at ninety years of age at the Rosewood Retirement and Assisted Living Community in Lafayette, Louisiana|
Vernon was born December 15, 1925 in Lufkin, Texas to Cyril Thomas Bolleter and Blanche Inez Odum Bolleter. He was one of five children raised in the small town of Lytle, Texas where he attended school and worked on a peanut farm for spending money as a youth. By the age of sixteen, in 1941, he had learned carpentry as a helper building army barracks in Lackland, TX and was raising flocks of 200 chickens to sell at market to help the family.
During his high school years, he lettered two years in the football program, and upon graduation applied to join the Navy. He was not accepted due to his age, but upon his seventeenth birthday, in 1942, he was allowed to join the United States Marine Corps. His math skills earned him an assignment to combat engineering school which included his favorite training, demolitions. And by the Spring of 1944, he was shipped off to fight in the Pacific Theater of Operations on the Island of Saipan. Within eighteen days he was wounded while fighting as a flame thrower, then sent home to recuperate; but, without the use of a trigger finger, he was honorably discharged from the Marines having received his Purple Heart.
After the war, Vernon was accepted into Rice Institute (now Rice University) to study architecture; however, after a summer job designing window details he decided to pursue a B.S. degree in the college of Geology at the University of Houston. With a penchant for science, skills in math, and love of business, Vernon joined the oil and gas exploration business, discovering oil fields for various companies which were purchased by Tenneco in 1966. By 1970, following his success for Tenneco in the North Sea, he was promoted to Chief Geologist. In 1981, Tenneco promoted Vernon to V.P. and Exploration Manager, a position that required worldwide traveling, but which also caused him to long for the more simple study for oil and gas. By 1987 he retired from Tenneco, then used his time to return to what he loved, studying the oil and gas basins around the world, especially their similarities, looking for patterns to reveal the next "big find".
In 1965, Vernon married Sandra Elaine Reed, who was his companion and loving wife during and in the advancement of his career, as well as his many travels. They both liked hunting and fishing, entertaining, and loved and enjoyed their family life.
Vernon was preceded in death by his mother and father; by his wife Sandra Reed Bolleter, and his step son Nicholas Reed Voorhies; his brother William Bolleter; and his sister, Marilyn Isidori.
He is survived by his sister, Melva Lanier; his brother, Robert Bolleter; his daughter, Cynthia Bujnoch and her husband, Roman Bujnoch of Magnolia, Texas; his son, Jim Bolleter and his wife, Debbie of Wellington, Florida; his step daughter, Rev. Dr. Nedra Voorhies and her husband, Rev. Dr. Donald Denton; his granddaughter, Courtney Williams and her husband, Travis Williams; his grandsons, David Voorhies and his wife Pam, Matthew Thomas Fossett and his wife Michelle, Alexander Vest, Michael Bolleter and Tyler Bolleter; his great granddaughters, Mayson Fossett, Anabelle Fossett; Meghan Voorhies, Lauren Voorhies and Brandy McNeil; his brother-in-law, Dwight Andrus, Jr. and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers are Matthew Fossett, Alexander Vest, Michael Bolleter, Tyler Bolleter, David Voorhies, Dwight W. Andrus IV, Adam Andrus and Ansley Robinson.
Honorary Pallbearers are Dwight W. Andrus Jr., Mike Bernard, and Roman Bujnoch.
Services will be held this Saturday, December 3, 2016, at 1:00 PM in Martin & Castille's La Fleur de Lis Chapel, 600 E. Farrel Rd. He will be interred in a family plot at Lafayette Memorial Park Cemetery in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Rev. Richard Humphries, Pastor of Asbury United Methodist Church will officiate the services.
The family will receive friends Saturday from 11:00 AM until time of the services at Martin & Castille's SOUTHSIDE location.

|39318||Violet Morgan Duncan is remembered for her long and vibrant life. She expressed her creativity in many ways, but most notably through her cooking, painting, and needlework. She was happiest among family and friends, serving up big bowls of her trademark chicken gumbo and shrimp or crawfish etouffe. She loved to paint landscapes or portraits, and family members remember the many portraits and other designs she painted on fragile eggshells.|
She also enjoyed crocheting and sewing, and when her hands weren't holding a cup of black coffee, they were always busy with her latest project.
Violet was born on July 21, 1924, in Ridge, Louisiana, near the Indian Bayou home of her ancestors. As a child, she lived in many Louisiana and Texas oil towns since her father worked for Humble Oil and moved the family of twelve frequently. But in spite of all the moves, she remembered her dad always planted a garden.
A member of the first graduating class of Denver City High School, she was pictured with a friend kicking up their heels in the nearby Sand Hills of West Texas on their graduation day in 1941. After graduation she attended a business college in Lubbock, Texas, and acquired bookkeeping and other administrative skills. Those skills helped her land one of her first jobs, at the rice mill of Crowley, Louisiana, where her family had moved during the 1940s. In Crowley she met a handsome young man who had served as a Navy torpedoman in World War II. Bob and Violet Duncan were married in a small ceremony in Lafayette, Louisiana, on June 1, 1945, and remained together until his death in 2008.
A couple of years after they were wed, the couple moved to Texas. After living several years in Pasadena, Texas, where her children attended school, Violet and Bob returned to Crowley. There they attended the First United Methodist Church of Crowley, where she sang in the choir and he taught Sunday School classes. She also was a member of the Rebekahs and contributed many of her legendary lemon meringue and coconut cream pies to church and social functions. In addition, she worked in the office of the American Legion Hospital for several years.
Violet Morgan Duncan died on January 31, 2012, at the Gracious Living personal care home in Dickinson, Texas, at the age of 87. She was predeceased by her husband, Robert C. Duncan. She is survived by her son, Richard (Dewey) Duncan and daughter-in-law, Myrna Duncan, of Dickinson, Texas; her daughter, Roberta (Bobby) Sue Duncan of Austin, Texas; and three grandchildren: Todd Duncan of Pensacola, Florida; Vance Duncan of Mannville, Texas; and Tracy Duncan Alfultis of Austin, Texas. She is also survived by three great-grandsons: Kazman and Chase Duncan of Deer Park, Texas; and Hilton Duncan of Mannville, Texas.
One of ten children, she was predeceased by her parents, Annie and Soloman Morgan, her oldest sister, Ruth Morgan Avant, and four brothers, O.B., Wynen, Myrlen,and Richard Morgan. She is survived by two sisters, Irma Morgan Campbell of Houma, Louisiana, and Wilda Morgan Van Drome, of Lafayette, Louisiana. In addition, she leaves behind two brothers, Kenneth Morgan of Lafayette, and Bryan (Butch) Morgan of Deer Park, Texas. She is also survived by several nephews, nieces, and cousins.
A visitation will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, February 3, 2012, at the Crowder Funeral Home in Dickinson, Texas.
Honorary pall bearers will be Michael Alfultis, James Campbell, Todd Duncan, Vance Duncan, Dan Hemker, Bryan Morgan, and Jonathan Morgan.

A pioneer in our local law enforcement history, Harson realized the need for an organizational structure in such a fast growing area and instituted the Parish's first departmentalized Sheriff's Office. He was also the first Lafayette Sheriff to emphasize the importance of training as he required his personnel to attend special training courses at L.S.U. In addition, Mr. Harson was the first President of the Southwest Western Union Teletype Circuit which established an important link of communication between all Sheriff's Offices in Southwestern Louisiana. Placing the first boat patrol on the river and utilizing Lafayette's first vehicular rescue unit equipped with resuscitator, tools and radio, were also among his major contributions to the safety of this area.
Like his father, Mr. Harson was vitally interested in the Youth of Lafayette Parish, and fulfilled his father's dream by completing Mayor Harson Field at Beaver Park. In addition to supplying uniforms for the baseball program, he also sponsored Youth Council trips, created the Junior Deputy Program and compiled Lafayette's first library on narcotics which he utilized during personal lectures to area school children. W. E. Harson married the former Gladys Dupuis. They reared a family of three children.
