Gregory David Bessette
Dec. 5, 1960-May 7, 2011
Greg (Boggie) Bessette passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, May 7, 2011. He was a long-time resident of the Brazos Valley, moving here from Fall River, Massachusetts. He was the son of Normand and Toshiko Bessette.
Greg’s heart was given over to Deborah Claire Patranella, and they were married on October 10, 1987. Their marriage was the center of his life, and he was above all a “family man.” He was extremely proud of his son, David Gregory Bessette, and he eagerly anticipated David’s upcoming graduation from Sam Houston University.
He was preceded in death by his father Normand Bessette.
Greg is survived by his wife Deborah Bessette; son, David Bessette; mother, Toshiko Bessette; brothers, Roger Bessette; James Bessette and wife Irene; sister Angie Kaldro; sister, Gloria Bessette and partner Laura Currie; brother-in-law, Frank Patranella and wife Debbie; sister-in-law, Jeanne Maddox and husband Mike; sister-in-law, Rose Rosser and husband Jim. Greg is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
Greg had a long, successful career working in the oil field. He was a kind, good- natured man who had love for plants and a passion for fishing. Many weekends he could be found at Birch Creek, fishing off the pier. He will be extremely missed by his family and friends; his passing is a loss to all who were blessed to have known him.
