Charles "Whit" Patin

Breaux Bridge - A Memorial Service will be held at 3:00 pm on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at Pellerin Funeral Home in Breaux Bridge for Charles "Whit" Whitley Patin, 67, who passed away on December 1, 2022, at Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center.

Interment will follow at St. Bernard No. 2.

To know him was to love him, and if you did have that pleasure, you were always left laughing. Whit grew up in a large family. As the middle child of seven, he always knew what to do to command the room, and that carried on into adulthood. Whit's charisma was unmatched, and his quick wit was always on full display. 

His true love was his family, and there's nothing he wouldn't do for them. He instilled humor and his love of sports in his two children. 

He was an avid outdoorsman and a member of Pelba Hunting Club, and his time spent there continues to be a source of generational stories. He spent 40 years in the oil and gas industry where his co-workers became family. Whit had an abundance of friends, most of whom were close like a brother. 

He will be missed, and this world became a little less funny in his passing. 

He is survived by Brenda Castille Patin, his wife of 45 years; son, Ira Patin; daughter, Barrie Patin Huval (Ory); grandson, Lincoln Paul Huval; his siblings, Marie Trahan (Neal), Ricky Patin, Cecile Guidry (Raymond), Tony Patin (Suzy) and Billy Patin (Dana);  his mother-in-law, Mary Castille; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by parents, Thomas "Fred" and Jeanne Calais Patin; granddaughters, Harper Lane Huval and Finnley Grace Huval; sister, Renee Patin; infant brother, John Patin; brothers-in-law, Terry Blanchard and Mark Sawyer and his father-in -law, Robert "Bill" Castille.

Honorary pallbearers will be Ira Patin, Scott Angelle, Blaise Dupuis, Peter Gauthier, Bada Kern, Doc LeBlanc and Whit's brothers. 

Pellerin Funeral Home (337-332-2111) is in charge of arrangements.
