He was a 1968 high school graduate of South Lafourche. He received his undergraduate degree at Nicholls State University and continued his studies at Texas A&M where he received his Veterinarian Degree in 1974. After graduating he returned to Thibodaux and
opened his own Veterinarian office, Lafourche Animal Hospital in 1975. A few years later he expanded to a second location, which was his childhood home in Cut Off, LA. He dedicated his life to his veterinary business, taking care of animals and saving countless
lives through his many years of practice. His business has now expanded to four veterinarians. He was active in the Nicholls Alumni Association and was an avid deer hunter and fisherman. One of his life passions was producing and supplying the best quality
hay in South Louisiana for his many clients to feed their horses. He greatest pride and joy was supporting his family, spending time with his grandchildren, and being the best Paw Paw he could be. He will be dearly missed by all who loved him. In lieu of flowers
memorial donations may be made to the K.C. Toups DVM College of Agriculture Endowed Scholarship.
