Rodney Paul Frisard, went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, December 15, 2016 at 4:43 am, at the age of 70, after a nearly five year fight with ALS. Rodney is responsible for writing the programs that pay the breeders awards for both the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association and the Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association and the program still in use today to accredit foals as Louisiana breds. Rodney joined the Army and proudly served his country in Vietnam. After his discharge from the Army he began pursuing a career in Computers, owning Frisard Computer Consultants. Rodney’s love of country was always proudly displayed in his characteristic Flag ties, which he began wearing after 9/11.
Survivors include his wife of 31 years, Cindy Frisard; 2 sons Brian Fitzpatrick (Marie), Eric Fitzpatrick (Suzanne); 2 daughters Amanda Packer Osborne (Danny), and Tara Packer Sosa (Chris); and eight grandchildren.
