Dennis was a devout Catholic and life-long parishioner of St. Martin de Tours Catholic Church in St. Martinville. He started his career in the sugarcane industry in 1968 and worked for Broussard Cane Equipment for over 40 years. It was a job he loved and lived for. Above all, his family always came first. He found the most joy with a house full of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren gathered together to enjoy some good food and quality time together. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend, who will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

 

He is survived by his wife and the love of his life for 60 years, Irmalene Theriot Gaudet; sons, Todd Gaudet (Renette) and Chad Gaudet (Mindy); daughters, Alison Boatright (Jay), Paula Sonnier (Randy) and Janet Lasalle (David); brothers, Clifton Gaudet, Louis Gaudet, Raymond Gaudet and Joseph Gaudet; sisters, Genieve Bateman, Joyce Gondron, Shirley Hernandez and Ethel Rodriguez; 13 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.

 

He is preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Lelia Gaudet; sisters, Hilda Gaudet and Lillian Fontenot; and in-laws Woodrow and Luda Theriot.

 

Pallbearers will be his grandsons, Chris Boatright, Cy Gaudet, Spencer Sonnier, Rene Boatright, Austin Gaudet, and Zachary Gaudet.

 

Honorary pallbearers will be his best friends, Nolan Dore' and Bernard Laviolette, Sr.
