      Mr. Menard was a native of Cankton and a resident of Lafayette. He was previously employed by Reese Food Broker's for seven years and the Great A & P Tea Company for twenty-seven years. He was a parishioner of St. Genevieve Catholic Church in Lafayette and formerly St. Edward the Confessor in Metairie. Charles was blessed to have shared a beautiful fifty-three year marriage with his beloved wife. He was a devoted Daddy, a great Papa, a terrific father-in-law, a loving brother and a loyal friend. He will be truly missed by all who were fortunate to have been touched by him. Heaven's grocery store will definitely be reset.

      He was preceded in death by his parents, Dupre Menard and the former Mildred Cormier, both natives of Cankton; one brother, Lawrence Menard; and one sister, Henrietta Bellard.

      A rosary will be prayed at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the funeral home.
