It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Dad/ Pop, Raphael Bernard Reviere, age 65, on Friday, July 22, 2022, at Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center in Lafayette.    He was born in Mamou and was currently residing in Lafayette.  He was a passionate crane operator for close to 40 years. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle on the open road as a pastime.  He was meticulous about the upkeep of the many yards which he was responsible for.  He cherished spending time with his family who meant the world to him; love and respect. He will be deeply missed by his family and all who knew him.

He is also survived by the mother of his children, Arleen Reviere; a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and beloved family members; and furbaby, Oreo.

He was preceded in death by his father, Nolton Reviere; paternal grandparents, Antoine and Lena Bellard Reviere; his maternal grandparents, D. D. LeBlanc and Mary Stelly LeBlanc; two sisters, Cynthia Courville and Debra Reviere; and two beloved furbabies, Rex and Bandit.

Pallbearers will be Jacob Jefcoat, Joshua Latiolais, Thomas Courville, Leon Tweedel, Barry LeBlanc, and his godchild, Dexter Tweedel.
