I was saddened to recently learn of the death of Mr. Perrault - he was unique and always had a good and clean heart for his students. He taught me well - my French was most useful south of India/east of Madagascar and most recently in conversing with various NATO forces near the Turkish/Syria border. He also walked the talk of his Catholic faith.

I never had Mr. Perrealt as a teacher but worked with him at Notre Dame Parish. From the youth group specifically. Sorry for the loss. My brother visited him several times during the year
Sorry for the loss.

Mr. Perrault was engaging with students like few others. He was a great listener and seemed to know nearly every student in my graduating class whether or not he was their teacher (he was not a teacher of mine). He was a rare breed indeed. Sail on Mr. Perrault.

Missoire Perreault was one of my favorite teachers at Drury. I recall his great efforts to teach me french but I was a rebellious teenager and did not appreciate the gift he was to Drury. God bless.
