Dear Aunt Emma and family
I was shocked and sad when I heard of Pat's passing. I was not able to attend the funeral because Cameron had a play at Jesuit. I loved Pat. He was always so kind and laughing all the time. I still can't believe he is gone. The entire Arceneaux family is in my families prayers. I know Pat is now with Uncle Lawrence in heaven. God bless you all!

Pat and I were best of friends during high school. We worked together, at my dads carpet store, double dated, and enjoyed each others company. We talked about 5 years ago and promised to get together. Sure wished it would have happened. Rest in Peace Pat may your journey be swift. Mike Pelafigue

I will forever remember Pat Arceneaux as my buddy in High School. My wife Cathy and I had our first date as we double dated with Pat and his date 42 years ago. I just talk to him a couple of months ago and talked about duck hunting . Pat and I worked together on the Sunrise III as deck hands for TeeBoy McCall. May God bless his wife and family with the Peace that passes all understanding. See ya on the other side Pat. Love ya Evangelist Rod Vincent, Dayton, Texas
