Seward Louis Broussard

August 6, 1954 - April 30, 2017     Age: 62

Seward Broussard, age 62 of Fernandina Beach passed away on Sunday afternoon, April 30, 2017 at the Warner Center for Caring.

Born in Abbeville, LA he was the son of the late Vernice and Zula Mae Broussard.  He grew up in Milton where he was a graduate of Comeaux High School.  After high school he attended Commonwealth College for a short time before landing a job in the Construction Industry.   In the mid 1970s he obtained his General Contractor’s License and founded Seaward Homes in Lafayette, LA.  In 1986 he and his wife moved to Fernandina Beach.  After settling in Northeast Florida they continued to run Seaward Homes and in 2000 opened Littleberry Farm; a wedding and event venue.

Seward loved people and hosting events at their farm; whether it be a lavish wedding, family reunion, fundraiser for a charitable cause, gathering of rival Florida and Georgia fans or a Superbowl party.  His hobby was cooking and seeing other people enjoy life as he did.

He leaves behind his high school sweetheart and wife of 45 years, Terry Elliott Broussard, their children, Brian and Summer, all of Fernandina Beach, FL, three granddaughters, Sydney and Bailey Broussard; their mother Patty Broussard and Paisley Broussard; also a sister and two brothers of Milton, LA.

A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 3:00 -6:00 pm at his farm.
