Daniel Paul Broussard, 61 of Glen Lyn, passed away on Saturday, August 1st, 2015 at his home with his wife of 41 years, Judy Pollard Broussard, by his side. Born in Jennings, Louisiana on August 19th, 1953, he was preceded in death by his parents, Ferris Joseph Broussard and Delta Broussard Berger; his stepfather, Marvin Berger; and his father-in-law, James O. Pollard.

He is survived by his wife, Judy; his daughter, Rebecca Lea Broussard of Christiansburg; his son and daughter-in-law, Daniel Paul Broussard, II and Kayla Craig Broussard; a very special grandson, Elijah James Broussard of Ballard, West Virginia; his sisters, Katie Broussard McKelvy and husband Harry, Jessica Broussard Greenwood and husband Michael; brothers Pat Broussard and wife Nancy, Gordon Broussard and wife Jennifer, all living in Texas; his brother-in-law, Rickey Pollard and wife Darlene of Glen Lyn; sisters-in-law, Vivian Terry of Peterstown and Margaret Pollard of Lindside; and mother-in-law, Hazel Pollard of Glen Lyn; several nieces and nephews in both Texas and Virginia.

Daniel worked as a pipefitter, and traveled to many states with his job. An accident in 1985 on a job in California changed his life from carefree and happy to a life of chronic pain. He loved to do woodworking and gardening until his pain made it impossible to do. In 2013, his grandson, Elijah, was born. Elijah could bring a smile to his face, and a sparkle in his eyes. He was a very proud papaw. His body is gone, no more suffering, and he has found the perfect fishing spot he always dreamed about. Memories will keep him with us forever.
