Patrick Paul Labit was born in Paris, France on March 10, 1961 to the late Wilton Labit and Paulette Gravillier Reynolds. He was a retired plumber, having worked for his brother-in-law, Michael Allen, who was like a brother to him. Patrick was a free spirit ~ a hippie at heart who loved life, went with the flow, and was very generous. He loved the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing, and he also enjoyed cold beer on his front porch. What he cherished most in life was time spent with his family, especially his grandchildren; he loved them more than words can express. Patrick was a loving father and grandfather and will be deeply missed. As he would say, “That’s life,” but for us, “It’s not goodbye; it’s see you later.” You are as free as a bird now.
Mr. Labit is survived by two children, Brandon Labit (David), and Kali Labit; six grandchildren, Katelyn Labit, Brayton Labit, Brylee Angelle, Kohyn Labit, Elliana Labit, and Huxley Labit; three siblings, Dannie Labit, Linda Moore (Joey), and Nicole Dutile (Mitchell); and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two siblings, Phillip Labit and Chantale Allen.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Traditions Hospice, especially Jeaneen LeBlanc, Kristin Molbert, Rachelle Mouton, Ashley Cordray, Latisha Viltz, and Sharon Russo, for extraordinary care and compassion.
