Vincent de Paul Brouillette, born March 15, 1935 in New Orleans to James and Clotine Brouillette of Avoyelles Parish, passed peacefully to his heavenly home on July 26, 2019 in Covington, Louisiana. Vincent was a licensed general contractor by profession who built many commercial buildings throughout the New Orleans area during the 1960s and 1970s. He enjoyed working hard and working outdoors, designing and constructing buildings, working with architects and clients, as well as completing numerous personal building projects to help friends and others. Vince especially enjoyed working on his farm and cultivating registered polled Hereford and Charolais cattle. He was married for 69 years to his wife, Lucille Dorvaux Brouillette, who preceded him in death. Vince was a man of great generosity and many talents, a devoted husband, father and loyal friend. He is survived by his three children: Belinda Besnard (Michael), Vincent Brouillette, II (Deborah) and Alison Greffenius (Brian); four grandchildren: Stephen Besnard (Jenna), Fr. Daniel Brouillette, Matthew Besnard (Brittany), and Joseph Brouillette; and two great grandchildren: Ava Bowers and Elise Besnard. We pray he will be greeted by his two granddaughters in heaven, Rebekah Besnard Bowers and Jaqueline Brouillette.
