A devoted husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and uncle, James leaves behind the love of his life, his faithful wife of twenty three years, Cathy Ann Arnold of Ville Platte. He will be deeply mourned by his two sons: Kirk Vidrine of Lafayette and Marcus Vidrine and his wife, Kinsey of Ville Platte and his legacy will continue on through his precious grandchildren: Dylan and Madison Vidrine.
