Alvin "Al" Bernard Cormier, Age 84, passed away on Tuesday June 6, 2023, at his home in St. Martinville surrounded by his wife and kids. 

Born on November 28,1938, Al was a lifetime resident of St. Martinville and a 1956 graduate of St. Martinville Senior High School.

He met the love of his life, Gerry Broussard Cormier, and they were married in 1962. Shortly afterwards they opened Al’s Maytag Home Appliance Store. 

As a trusted, outstanding, and successful businessman for over 50 years in his community, his service did not end there.  Throughout his adult life, he and Gerry volunteered many hours to the community in which they lived.  They organized the first Youth Group for St. Martin De Tours Church and were instrumental in assisting Fr.

For over 25 years, he also served as a volunteer for Hospice of Acadiana, where he was able to meet the needs of parish residents with terminal illness.  Al also served as Ward 1 Constable for 18 years in St. Martin Parish.  

Al was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Those that knew him know that he had a passion for hunting and fishing and enjoyed many great times in his duck blind and at "Duh Camp" with his friends, children, and grandchildren. He also enjoyed dancing with his wife on weekends at festivals and clubs throughout the Acadiana area.  

He will be remembered as a humble, grateful, and faithful servant to God, his family, and his country.
