Adrian Camille Péré, 51, passed away Sunday, January 3, 2016, in New Orleans, LA. He was born in Gulfport, MS, on June 1, 1964. He graduated from LSU with honors with a degree in microbiology, opting for a vocation in Catholic ministry in lieu of medical school. He graduated from Notre Dame Seminary and Graduate School of Theology Summa Cum Laude with a master's degree in Divinity and was ordained a Catholic priest on June 5, 1993. Adrian was a gifted, intelligent soul whose first love was his ministry to God as a Catholic priest in the Diocese of Baton Rouge. Upon completion of his priestly ministry, Adrian worked in various jobs until graduating from Tulane University with honors with a master's degree in social work and finding his second calling as a social worker and director of student counseling services at the University of New Orleans. His tender nature and intelligence were a blessing to all he comforted as a priest and a counselor. His passing is a tremendous loss to his family, friends, and clients. Adrian is survived by his parents Henry W. Péré, Jr. and Kate Camille Porche Péré of Prairieville; his brothers Henry W. Pere III and wife Shari of Prairieville, David Péré of Baton Rouge, Wayne Péré of Baton Rouge, and sister Jeanne Péré Dawson and husband Michael of Baton Rouge; Godsons (nephews) Nikolas Parson, and girlfriend, Julie Pascal and Christian Péré; nephews, Landon Warren Péré, Henry W Péré IV, Isaak Dawson, Jason Péré; Nieces Brittany Parson and fiancée Jason Sillstrop, Chelsea Péré and fiancé Nick Skias, Camille Péré, and boyfriend, Alfred Cook III, Kaitlin Parson and fiancé Nick McCleave, and Carley Péré; and numerous other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Henry W. Péré Sr. and Lurline Munson Péré; maternal grandparents Clifford C. Porche and Irene Wallace Porche.
