Rivers Aristide Patout III
My brother Walter and I had Fr. Rivers as a counselor at Camp Foley for several summers. He was a great guy to all of us at the Camp. I also saw him playing in the Notre Dame Band during football season. He would always wave to us in the stands. John Henebry Rancho Mirage California
You were a part of my life since mine and my siblings First Communion at Blessed Sacrament, and stayed in our lives. I kept you tucked away like the special person,friend,gem that you are,and came to you not long ago for your loving guidance and friendship. I remember asking you to instruct me from your heart like only Jesus would do because I had no one else to. And that you did. I called you again for more of your guidance only to find you left me. Time ran away for a while and I had not spoken to you and I lost the best friend and man I know who could help heal a soul in only the way our Lord and Saviour could. Your passing just made this journey of mine a bit more difficult but I will be OK because like Jesus, I had you for a while on the journey with me. May God grant you eternal rest and peace Father. You were loved by so many.

Fr. Patout rest in peace. I will always remember you and what you did for our youth group back in the day. We had fun going to the Seamen's Center Port of Houston.
Your rich life was always a full goblet pouring out compassion serendipity & delight, intentionality & vigour. A grand full bodied wine with integrity & taste… to the Glory of God. Rivers, thanks be to God!
