For to be carnally minded is death. But to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Herman Charles Brignac went to be with the Lord on Monday, July 18, 2022, at the age of 91. He was a native of Head of Island, LA, and was born on a strawberry farm off the banks of the Amite River. He graduated from Maurepas High School and Southeastern University. Herman was also an Army veteran and retired from the East Baton Rouge Parish School System and the City of Baton Rouge.
Herman enjoyed gardening, raising strawberries, vegetables, and flowers. His favorite seeds to nurture were the seeds of education. He was a teacher for nearly 30 years in East Baton Rouge and Pointe Coupee Parishes. His teaching career included teaching at Livonia, Istrouma, Claiborne, and North Highlands. Herman enjoyed his summer months working with BREC on the North Baton Rouge Playgrounds. He was a member of Istrouma Baptist Church and was a long-time first Grade Sunday School Teacher. Herman had a gift for sharing the story of Jesus with children and those stories will be missed.
