Cleveland Charles "Chuck" Perilloux III passed into heavenly eternity on August 31, 2023. He was surrounded by his family and will be sadly missed by those who loved him. He was born in New Orleans on July 8, 1948, and became known as “Chuck” to his many friends and family. He spent the early years of his life in Destrehan and Metairie. He and his wife of 49 years, Cathy moved to Madisonville in 2008 which is where he lived until the time of his passing.
He served in the U.S. Marine reserve and retired from Entergy after a career that spanned four decades.
Chuck will be remembered by his family, friends and co-workers as someone who loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman who spent many hours teaching and sharing his love for those hobbies with his sons and grandsons. He loved the Saints, baseball, carpentry and cooking. Chuck will be fondly remembered by anyone who had the good fortune to be fed at his table. His culinary strength lay in cooking traditional cajun fare like gumbo, jambalaya and boiled seafood. A great meal was just one of the benefits of sitting at Chuck’s table; he found great pleasure in sharing his recipes, unique culinary techniques and life-lessons with others.
While always proud of his creations in the kitchen, nothing gave Chuck more joy than the family he led. His children: Cory Perilloux, Cody Perilloux (Jennifer) and Amy Perilloux Palmer (Jake) were the apples of his eye and blessed him with five granddaughters Kailey Perilloux, Chloe Perilloux, Olivia Palmer, Elise Palmer, Julia Palmer, and two grandsons Cooper Perilloux, and Brennan Perilloux. Poppy, as he was lovingly called by his grandchildren, enjoyed any opportunity to watch them participate in soccer, volleyball, baseball, hunting and fishing. Chuck filled the role as a doting grandfather proudly and wholeheartedly.
Chuck is preceded in death by his parents, Cleveland C. Perilloux Jr. and Laverne Pecora. His siblings, Bryan Perilloux and Kathy Clement also precede him in death along with his mother-in-law, Rose Mary Rodrigue.
He is safe in the arms of Jesus and our Blessed Mother. We will miss him forever.
