Anyone he knew, including his animals, was given a nick name by him. Ernest will be remembered as a loving husband, father, and grandfather. One mission that he accomplished in his lifetime was that he always cared and provided for his family.

Those left to cherish his memory is his wife of 56 years, Wanda Trahan Touchet of Welsh; two sons, Anthony Touchet and Dwayne Touchet both of Welsh; three daughters, Joanette Dodson and husband Curtis of Sulphur, Sandra Oquin of Lake Charles, and Sheila Chouest of Broussard; 18 grandchildren; numerous great grandchildren; three brothers, Bobby Touchet and wife Gloria of Baytown, TX, David Touchet of Welsh, and Randy Touchet and wife Cindy of Carlyss; five sisters, Judy Avant and husband John of Hathaway, Mary Smith and husband Dudley of Denham Springs, Theresa Cormier and husband Robert of Hathaway, Debbie Mott of Lake Charles, and Belinda Touchet of Houston, TX.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Ernest and Rena Touchet, Sr.; one son Chad Touchet, Sr.; and two sisters; Cindy McElhaney and Angela Touchet.

Family you all are in prayer.
So many good memories of Mr.Touchet, always had a smile on his face, and something silly to say when he would come pay light bill.

God bless your soul.

I’m grateful after so many years apart from you I was able to see you a couple years ago! We got to walk on the land, talk, laugh, and I remember telling you that would most likely be the last time we seen each other. You knew your time was near. You said it. But most of all you knew you did as much as you could for so many of the people you loved! I’m so sad I wasn’t near you in your last days, but I am the least bit grateful I actually got to say my last goodbye to you and got to give you thanks for all you did for my brothers and I as kids! I love you Paw Paw! May you rest easy and watch over Maw Maw! Rest easy Ernie💙
