P.D.,FASCP CEO/Owner of Bellard ‘s Pharmacy & Home Medical Supply
Aurdie K. Bellard began his career as a Pharmacist at Begneaud’s Pharmacy in Lafayette after graduation in 1988. In 1991, he came back to Eunice, his hometown and birthplace, to work at Family Drug Center. He was given the opportunity to purchase the pharmacy in 2000 and so Bellard’s Family Pharmacy was born!. Having worked in the health industry for many years locally he saw the need for a reliable medical equipment & supply business. In 2006 he started Bellard’s Home Medical Supply and with it’s growth in 2008 he built the current building (located behind Bellard’s Pharmacy). After having the position of PIC for 25 years (15yrs at Bellard’s & 10yrs Family Drug Center) Aurdie decided to spend more time governing daily operations of the pharmacy and medical supply. He currently serves as Southwestern Chairmen to the Board of Directors of the Louisiana Pharmacy Association. He is dedicated to keeping the independent pharmacies in business and thriving by helping to pass bills pertaining to the practice of pharmacy. Aurdie loves his community and enjoys fulfilling their needs with both healthy medications & medical supplies. What he enjoys most about his pharmacy is observing his qualified wonderful staff perform their jobs while taking pride in their work. When Aurdie isn’t at work or with his family you can usually find him on a local golf course. Meditation, spending time with God, and family and playing golf are Aurdie’s idea of relaxation.
Aurdie has four children, Blaise 26 (Fiancee- Lisa Daigle & daughter Jaclyn), Adrienne 23, Amelia 13 & John Bradley 11. Aurdie is engaged to Denise W. McDaniel. Aurdie’s fiancee, Denise, has 3 daughters, a son in law and one granddaughter

Blaise helped his father/owner Aurdie Bellard out with deliveries and such when he was in college. Blaise makes sure the inventory is ordered, arrives and is checked out efficiently. Blaise says that one of the things he enjoys most about working at Bellard’s is the fact that it’s a good family atmosphere for employees and customers. He adds that he enjoys seeing the business succeed with all the great people(employees) working behind it!! When Blaise is not working he is enjoying LSU football, baseball, golf or hunting. He and his fiancee Lisa Daigle recently bought a home in Eunice which they share with Lisa’s young daughter Jacelyn.
