VILLE PLATTE - Weber Lee Deshotels, Jr. was born May 18, 1955 and lived a fulfilling life up until his passing on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Mercy Regional Medical Center in Ville Platte surrounded by those he loved. He was a 1974 graduate of Evangeline Academy and obtained his education degree at McNeese State University in Lake Charles. Weber touched many lives through his 30 plus years as an educator at Basile and Ville Platte High Schools. As a football and track coach, he was able to instill in his athletes the necessary skills to be successful both while competing and also throughout life. When not inspiring the youth of his community, Weber enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, collecting treasures, and being involved with local politics. He even pursued a political career by running for the office of Evangeline Parish Assessor Clerk of Court.

“Web” as everyone knew him will be greatly missed by his siblings: his twin sister, Suzanne Vidrine and husband, John Benny of Mamou, Margaret Smith Courville and husband, Harold of Denham Springs, Jenny Cagle and husband, Ron of Walker, Richard DesHotels and wife, Charlotte of Baton Rouge, Mark Jerry DesHotels of Mamou and his Godchildren Chad Andres, Ryan DesHotels, and Hunter David. Also left behind to cherish his memory are his numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and a great-great nephew.

He will now reunite in Heaven with his parents, Weber “Bee” Lee Deshotels, Sr. and Patty Ray Demoruelle Deshotels.

The family requests that visiting hours be observed on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 from 2:00 P.M. until 9:00 P.M at Ardoin’s Funeral Home in Ville Platte.

    I am so saddened to learn about Weber's passing away. He was a good and honest-hearted man-rare today. I had the honor of meeting him at Ville Platte High School and at my time at MHS, too. Always, he was kind and honest; never hypocritical or two-faced. How I am saddened. Yet, I know that good men like him have the promise of God to live again, forever. In Jesus name, Amen.
