Marvin James Chargois

April 14, 1950 ~ September 29, 2021

Marvin J. Chargois was born on April 14, 1950, to Welch and Helen Chargois. He passed away at the age of 71 on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, with his family at his side.

Marvin retired from PPG Industries in 2005, where he worked as pipefitter for 30 years. He was a cowboy at heart; he enjoyed all aspects of raising cattle and horses. He loved attending rodeos to support the young cowboys and cowgirls.  Marvin considered his step great grandson, Bentlee, “the son that he never had”.  Bentlee was the motivation that Marvin needed to face each day of his illness. During the years that Bentlee has lived with his grandparents, Marvin enjoyed mentoring Bentlee.

He was preceded in death by his parents; three sisters, Gloria Andrus, Vivian Chargois, and Lois Chargois; four stepsons, John, Michael and Guy LeBlanc; and step-daughter, Melissa Mull.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 13 years, Linda Chargois; “son”, Bentlee Carlin; stepdaughters, Tonya Freeman (Jason), and Becky Andrus; twenty step-grandchildren; and twenty-three great grandchildren.

Funeral Service will be held at 2:30 pm, Friday, October 1, 2021, in Johnson & Robison Funeral Home of Sulphur. Rev. Marcus Wade will officiate.  Visitation will be 10am – 2pm, Friday in the funeral home.

    23rd. Psalm

    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Amen.

    SAFELY HOME

    I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
    Oh so happy and so bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty
    In this everlasting light.
    All the pain and grief is over,
    Every restless tossing passed;
    I am now at peace forever,
    Safely home in Heaven at last.
    Did you wonder I so calmly
    Trod the valley of the shade?
    Oh, but Jesus' love illumined
    Every dark and fearful glade.
    And He came Himself to meet me
    In that way so hard to tread;
    And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
    Could I have one doubt or dread?
    Then you must not grieve so sorely,
    For I love you dearly still,
    Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
    Pray to trust our Father's will.
    There is work still waiting for you,
    So you must not idly stand;
    Do it now, while life remains,
    You shall rest in Jesus' land.
    When that work is all completed,
    He will gently call you Home;
    Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
    Oh, the joy to see you come !
