  • Another Blue Eagle reports to Chesty

    Received this message from a great pilot.

    S/F Gary


    Gary/ Popasmoke:

    I'd like to ensure that a notice of Captain Jim Barouse's passing gets published in the appropriate places, RTB, etc.)I have notified as many HMM-263 pilots and aircrew as I have in my files.

    I flew do to Pensacola for the funeral and burial. Present was (MAj.Gneral, USMC, Ret.) Larry Taylor, who was a personal friend of Jim's, and squadron mates Harv Olitsky and myself, as well as many naval aviators and former Eastern Airline pilots.

    Semper fi,

    Dick "VAS" Vas Dias



    Capt. James Laurent Barousse, USMCR , age
    71,(1940 - 2011), passed away October 18th, following a brief and
    unexpected illness.

    Jim was born in Opelousas,
    LA and attended A.I.C. (Opelousas Catholic High School). He
    graduated from LSU in 1962 and then joined the Marine Corps. As a
    Marine aviator he flew the UH-34D in HMM-263 on
    missions in Viet Nam and was honorably discharged in 1966.
    Jim continued his aviation career as a pilot for Eastern Airlines.
    Following the strike in 1989, he continued flying for a variety of
    airlines. He ended his flying career as a test and ferry captain for
    Northwest Airlines.

    Jim moved from Marietta, GA
    to Pensacola Beach with his wife in 2001 where they joined old
    friends, Wendy and Tom Brandon. He subsequently began a new career
    as a tax advisor with H & R Block. Jim got in a daily workout at
    The Club, palled around with his dog “Lucky”, and loved his LSU
    Tigers. He never missed an opportunity to get together with old
    friends and trade Marine Corps and aviation stories. More than just
    about anything, he treasured time spent with his grandchildren,
    Delaney and Sean.

    James is preceded in death
    by his parents, Nita and Victor Barousse and brother, Michael. He
    is survived by Judy, his wife of 36 years; stepdaughter,
    Christine Murphy of St. Louis; stepson and wife, Michael and Karen
    Murphy and grandchildren Delaney and Sean of Marietta, GA; his
    brother and wife, TeVic and Mona Barousse of New Orleans; and
    niece, Monique Cobb, and nephew, Michael Barousse.

    A Memorial Mass was held
    Friday, November 18, 2011 at 12:45 pm at the Naval Aviation
    Memorial Chapel. Interment will follow at Barrancas Cemetery.

    In lieu of flowers the
    family suggests a donation to Our Lady of the Assumption, 920 Via de
    Luna, Pensacola Beach, Florida.
