Reving Joseph Broussard Jr. | April 23, 1935 – May 9, 2019
Born in New Iberia, Broussard has contributed to the community his entire life. From volunteering his time with the Jaycees, to serving as the chairman for the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce in 1981, and starting his own business in New Iberia, Broussard helped his home town flourish in a special way. He was charismatic, funny, and made new friends every day. His story will continue to inspire this community for years to come.
Terrel Patrick Dressel | September 13, 1938 – May 16, 2019
Dressel served as the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce chairman in 2000, helping to lead New Iberia to where it is today. An Iberia Parish native, Dressel became heavily involved in organizations like United Way, Cajun Kiwanis, Iberia Parish School Board and more in order to give back to the community that gave so much to him. He started his own accounting firm after earning his CPA certification, which later merged with Broussard Poche. His impact on New Iberia will hardly be forgotten.
