Most importantly, Jerry was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who placed his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He will be sadly missed by all.

Those he leaves to cherish his memory include his wife of nearly 61 years, Alberta Bailey Marcotte; four children, Lisa Bourliea and her husband Herb, Jerry Marcotte, Jr. and his wife Chris, Donna Romero and her husband Wayne, and Vicki Rogers and her husband Brent; five grandchildren, Bret Bourliea and his fiancée Amanda Seibert, Erin Lawrence and her husband Ryan, Lindsay Guiterrez and her husband Ralph, Patrick Marcotte and his wife Emily and Emily Broussard and her husband Damian; and four great grandchildren, Aubrey Lawrence, Wyatt Guiterrez, Willow Guiterrez and Beau Marcotte.
