George Sheldon Caillouet, Jr., a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, brother and “Poppa” to many, earned his heavenly reward of eternal peace and rest on Friday, October 1, 2021. At his passing he was 77 years old at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston Texas.

George was born June 9, 1944 in Alexandria, Louisiana. He and his sister Carol Kay were adopted by a beautiful and loving couple, the late George Sheldon Caillouet, Sr. and Eloise Holladay Caillouet and raised into a Christian life.

While in school in Alexandria, George would meet the woman of his dreams, Patricia McGlothlin, and a true love story would become a marriage made in heaven. Two high school sweethearts entered into the sacred sacrament of matrimony and would enjoy a beautiful marriage of 58 years. For 35 years of their marriage, he and Patricia served the Diocese in the Retrouvaille and Marriage Encounter ministry, providing tools to help couples with communication, forgiveness and trust. Both he and Patricia received a degree in Psychology from the Greico Institute to facilitate their position in this ministry.

While serving the Diocese and raising a family of their own, George Sheldon was enrolled in college at LA Tech where he studied Business Administration and Engineering. He then focused on his major of Engineering attending the University of Alabama, Birmingham. He received his degree in Engineering and worked in the fields of Civil, Electrical, and Petroleum as well as his Master’s degree and operated C &C Engineering Consulting until his retirement at the age of 70. Through those years, George Sheldon traveled the country working as a consultant and providing his expertise to many companies, sometimes being away from family for three months at a time. He and Patricia also owned and operated a garden center and interior design studio, at Stateline Greenhouses in Eagle Rock, Missouri offering landscaping, gardening materials, and plants.

Outside of his businesses, George Sheldon centered himself with his faith and family. He and Patricia were prayer warriors, offering daily prayer for all. Being adopted, he prayed for the many orphaned children around the world, and prayed daily for Holocaust survivors, that they would find peace and comfort. His generous heart provided much needed financial support to Orphan’s Promise and to the Holocaust Survivors in Israel. He was truly a man with a servant’s heart and love for all.

Some of George Sheldon’s favorite pastimes was collecting die cast cars, as he was a fan of cars from the past, and these replicas brought him back to good times and great memories. Most importantly, spending time with his love, Patricia, and his children and their families brought the most joy to him. He leaves a legacy of faith, love for all, compassion for his fellow man and generosity to the less fortunate that will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Rest well for you have earned your heavenly reward.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife and best friend, Patricia McGlothlin Caillouet; his children, William Marshall Caillouet and wife Frances Bannister Caillouet, and Ashleigh Caillouet Frederick and husband Corey David Frederick; four granddaughters, Erica Caillouet Fay ( husband Shawn), Casey Caillouet Gilliland (husband Matthew), Sara Caillouet Rayburn (husband Wayne) and Christian Alexandria Kiddy; 5 great grandsons, Kaleb Rayburn, Grayson Rayburn, Christopher Fay, Russell Fay and Logan Gilliland; and his only sister, Carol Kay Iles.

Along with his parents, he is reunited with his son, Christopher Antony Caillouet who preceded him in death.

A memorial service celebrating George’s life will be held at 10:00 am Saturday, October 30, 2021 at Evangeline Funeral Home. Fr. Buddy Breaux will officiate. A gathering of family and friends will begin on Saturday at 9:00 am with the Rosary being recited after the service at 11:00 am.

Dear Poppa,

I miss you and love you more than words could possibly describe. You are and will forever be my whole world. You are so profound, loving, selfless, kind, humble, and generous. A ray of sunshine, amongst a rainy day. I'll never forget how you always lit up every room with your famous smile.
I'm going to miss our family trips to Biloxi, and how'd you'd always make the best sand castle on the beach. Or whenever you'd call my name in the mornings, so I could help you get ready. I'd always have to step on a chair so I could reach to put on your shaving cream. You'd laugh and kiss me on the cheek to make sure you'd get it all over me. Always hiding to scare me, play pranks on me, tell me new jokes you heard just to make me laugh.
Forever my number one supporter. You were always there for me no matter the situation or circumstance. You taught me how to love others no matter what they had been through or what their current situation they were in.
You are my hero, Poppa. You are everything I want to be, the number one person I will always look up to. You are my heart and soul and I miss you. I'll miss seeing your little red truck in the drive way, when I'm coming home. I wish I could have a little more time with you. But I am so happy for you now. God knew what he was doing when he gave me the greatest Poppa in the world. I'll forever be your ' best ole girl in the whole world'.
I love you, more.
-Chrissie ❤️

I will miss you napping on my couch snuggling under a blanket. What I wouldn’t give to snuggle up next to you and be your little girl again…..I miss you so much.

I can remember running through the house on Texas Avenue making big loops with Casey. Papa would grab us and blow raspberries on our bellies making us squeal then put us down so we could run again. He would always call us his Stooges. Papa was always there for me when I needed him, on the phone or in person. He always had advice and an ear to listen to me when I needed to vent. We always talked and he always told me he loved me and called me sweetie. There are more memories than there is room on paper to tell of his love for us all and his devotion to the family. It was evident in everything that he did with us and for us. Memories fade but true love and devotion lasts a lifetime, that will be with us all for the rest of our days.
