Evest was an honor graduate of Terrebonne High School Class of 1944. He was a pillar of the Dulac Community and was most commonly known as “Mr. Tee Wee”. He was a self-employed businessman, owning and operating the seafood factory Voisin Canning Company for several decades. Up and down the bayou, he also sold State National Life Insurance to residents. For that reason, he was given the alias, “The Insurance Man”. A devote Catholic who volunteered much of his time to his beloved parish of Holy Family, he served as an instrumental leader in the establishment of Knights of Columbus “Our Lady of Good Voyage” Council 7722. He was a 4th degree Knight and loyally served as Grand Knight, Faithful Navigator, and Treasurer for the bayou chapter. Always proud to represent Grand Caillou, Evest also actively served as a member to the following groups and organizations: The Holy Name Society, The Society of St Vincent de Paul, Terrebonne Recreation, Fire, and Waterworks Districts. Evest leaves a beautiful legacy behind to be reunited with family who passed before him. He now rests in the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
