Captain Jerry dePerrodil, a.k.a. DooDoo, was a man of loyalty, valor, warmth, sincerity, honor, strength, humility, charm, and above all: love of his family. And it was his loving wife and son who surrounded and supported him through his journey of ups and downs over the past year and a half. It was their unfailing devotion that created a loving cocoon in which he was allowed to peacefully pass from this life into the restful arms of Jesus in the early morning hours of February 7, 2024.


Jerry comes from a family of firecrackers, captivating story tellers, and fierce protectors. Born December 19, 1943, in Houston, TX, he was raised by his Mother, Ida “Nookie” Allen, and Stepfather, Papa Buck Allen, along with his siblings: Alyce, Joni, Mike, and Randy. He is reunited with those loving family members who have preceded him in death; Loyd (Father), Ida (Mother), Buck (Stepfather), Alyce (Sister), Mike (Brother), Gary (Son), Jeremy (Son), Gussie (Mother-in-Law), Robert (Father-in-Law)


From a young age, he loved the outdoors. Adventure and the exploration of what lay beyond the front porch called to his fearless soul. No unknown possibility, no “what if”, could hold him back from doing what he wanted to do, when and how he wanted to do it. And after the adventure was all said and done, boy did he have a story to tell, which usually ended up with him somehow being caught right in the middle of a fight, all thanks to the look on his face alone! His favorite line he loved telling was, “I never said nothin! They just looked at me and wanted to fight me!” He never backed down, he never accepted defeat, he always gave it his all, everything his heart allowed.


His vivacious and spirited heart called him to many places over the years. Jerry served our Nation on the USS Intrepid during his term of service as a Naval Officer in the United States Navy. He proudly told the story of how his heart led him to find the love of his life in a bar in Lake Charles, LA. Jerry and Bobbie, a.k.a. BeBe, made their forever home in Slagle, LA, where they raised their loving, hilarious, character-filled son, Dale.


Jerry devoted the next 42 years providing for his family as a Tow Boat Captain for Magnolia Marine Transport. Throughout his career, he mentored many men in the art of being a merchant marine.


In Jerry’s later years, he was blessed even more by the births of his grandchildren. He delighted in many simple pleasures but what he loved the most was spending quality time with his family. What he had, he so willingly wanted to share with others. To his compassionate wife, his adored son, and his grandchildren, he’s passed on the value of family, love of nature and animals, generosity, and a call to protect those less fortunate, love of country, and the peace of knowing that no matter what we do in life, God’s love is always there to welcome us back home.


He will be remembered by his surviving family: Bobbie (Wife); Dale (Son); Daughter-in-Laws: Donna, Crystal, Rebecca; Grandchildren: Brittany, Josh, Tiffany, Jeremy, Courtney, Taylor, Maggie Pearl, Robert Joseph; and four Great Grandchildren; Pallbearers: Chris O’Neal, Clayton Cobb, Richard Stanley, Bobby Bordelon, Tom Scott, Lee Lane; Honorary Pallbearers: Tow Boat Boys and the Super Grip Family; Most Bestest “Girlfriend”: Sabra McKneely Browning.


His “give it your all”, incredible life embodied this wisdom found from a note left in his handwriting: “Life is a Train. Some day we all have to get off.” His train ride ended peacefully here on earth. But, as soon as he took his final step off his earthly ride, was the very moment he stepped into the presence of our Heavenly Father. What a ride that must have been!


In lieu of flowers, Bobbie and Dale have requested donations be made to the Louisiana Lions Camp organization serving youth of Louisiana with respiratory disorders, special needs, juvenile diabetes, and childhood cancer.
