It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kenneth Doucet, age 66, on Saturday, January 15, 2022, at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Hospital in Baton Rouge, La.
Kenneth proudly served his country in the United States Army as a medic. He was a member of Our Savior's Church and worked as a Production Operator oilfield for 40 years. Kenneth was known for his vibrant personality, quick jokes, signature dance moves, impeccable whistling talent and his ability to slip a little Cajun French into any sentence or song. He was always first to arrive at festivals, loved dancing the whole time and was the last one to leave. He was a big LSU Football and New Orleans Saints Football fan. He enjoyed being outdoors, tending to his vegetable garden, making a fire, listening to Cajun music, and playing Yahtzee every night. He also loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. Kenneth will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is also survived by seven grandchildren, Braylon Broussard, Brylon Broussard, Allisa Broussard, Beau Aucoin, Aubrey Smith, Jada Broussard, and Ellie Broussard.
