VILLE PLATTE- Funeral Services will be held at 10:00 AM for James Rickie Soileau, 61, at Ardoin's Funeral Home Chapel on Wednesday, December 20, 2017, who passed away on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at his residence surrounded by his family and friends.

Pastor Kevin West of First Baptist Church of Ville Platte will be conducting the funeral services. Father Joshua Paul Guillory will be reciting rosary and will give Eulogy.

Rickie was a man who loved the Lord, loved people, and loved life. As a man of few words, he taught many just by the way he lived. He believed in honor and integrity, and he always made time for people. Throughout his life, he demonstrated the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. He loved being outside hunting, fishing and passing a good time with family and friends.

His memories will live on through his family. He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Christina Guillory Soileau; daughters, Christina Amié Burnham and husband Dr. Jeremy Mark Burnham of Baton Rouge, Monique Marie Ardoin and husband Brandon Paul of Scott, and Olivia Ann Soileau of Ville Platte; son, Gabriel John Soileau and wife Lacey Jean Baldridge Soileau of Oceanside, CA; grandchildren, Alexia Nicole and James Kelly Ardoin, Jardyn Layne Soileau, Lincoln Adam Blanco, Evangeline Jean and Delta Gilbert Soileau, Avery Claire, Brielle Nicole and Jacob Mark Burnham; sisters, Debra Marie Soileau Daire and husband Dr. John C. Daire of Lafayette and Mary Katherine Daire and husband James Lester Daire.

Rickie is preceded in death by his parents, Claude and Ora Mae Leger Soileau and parran, Calvin Soileau.
